Once again wandering through the country, Usagi comes upon the aftermath of a bloody fight. The carnage has left only one survivor -- Hiroto, a bounty hunter on the trail of the local bandit leader. Now that his group has been ambushed by the bandits, and everyone else has been killed, Hiroto needs help. He recruits Usagi to the cause, and together they set out after the gang. However, Usagi realizes -- too late -- that his partner is the bandit chief himself!
A standalone tale and a great jumping-on point for new fans!
