The story then unfolds to reveal the tale of an Princess Hatshusime (Hatsume), entrapped in Kitahama Castle of Chief Inspector Harumoto and is pursuit by his ninja assassins. The story comes back to present day Sayori, who somehow finds herself back in time trapped in Hatsume's body in the company of her faithful bodyguard Muneshige, just before an assassination attempt on Hatsume was made.
