In 1615, a new Shogun rises to power in Japan with the intention to bring peace to the realm. He recruits five specialists to aid him in his battle against rebellion. Each specialist has extraordinary skills for espionage, assassination and sabotage.
There is Hayato, an agile ninja who can clear enemies silently with his sword and shuriken. The Samurai, Mugen is more violent and can defeat more opponents at a time. However, as a result, he is less flexible. Aiko is a master of camoflage, distracting her enemies as a Geisha. Yuki, a street child leads enemies to their demise by placing clever traps and decoys. Takuma uses a sniper rifle to eliminate enemies from a distance.
