On a spring night in 1784, from Kyotoï¿½s Fushimi Magistrate, Kobori Masakata a live gift arrived at this Edo mansion. A woman had been abducted and sent to the mansion with the threat of death to her parents, who were being held in Kyotoï¿½s Rokkaku jail.
With their lives in her hands she is ordered to ï¿½do her dutyï¿½ with the evil Senior Councilor Tanuma Okitsugu. This corrupt official had monopolized Shogun Ieharuï¿½s patronage and was unequalled in power. He privatized politics and handed out positions according to the amount he received in bribes. It would take a man in a mysterious purple hood to try and save her and help the townspeople of Edo.
