Lone Wolf and Cub 1: Sword of Vengeance

He was Ogami Itto, a man who held himself to the harsh code of Bushido, entrusted by the Shogun with the gravest of responsibilities, that of official executioner. His flashing blade brought swift release to those ordered to commit Seppuku - ritual suicide - be they man, woman, or even child. Ogami Itto - falsely accused of treason by the evil Yagyu Clan, stripped of his position, his wife murdered by Yagyu assassins. Ogami Itto - a father who gave his infant son a terrible choice between a beautiful red ball and a sword. To choose the ball meant to join his mother in the Void, to choose the sword meant to join his father, now a Ronin, a samurai without a master, in a blood-soaked journey that must end in revenge and death.
