His services cost 500 pieces of gold. Once he agrees to take an assignment, he never fails. But now Ogami Itto faces his greatest challenge yet - he has been hired to kill Oyuki, tattooed mistress of the martial arts! While searching for Oyuki, Daigoro and Itto are separated, and Daigoro meets Yagyu Gunbei, master swordsman and loser of the duel which won Ogami his position as official executioner. Gunbei recognizes Daigoro and is about to kill him when Ogami appears and accepts his challenge to a duel. After the duel, father and son continue their search while dealing with several bands of Yagyu assassins sent to ensure their failure. When Ogami finally meets Oyuki, he realizes that she does not deserve her fate. Yet the code of Bushido demands that Ogami carry out his assignment, which he does with great regret. After giving Oyuki a proper cremation, Ogami brings her ashes to her father. But lurking in the shadows, plotting his demise, is the evil Lord Relsudo. And this time, he's brought an army to ensure the job gets done right.
