The story starts with a warrior named Shimazu Toyohisa, who was fighting in Sekigahara battle on October 21st, 1600. Though Shimazu managed to wound Li Naomasa severely, he on the other side got serious injuries making him retreat from the battle with dreadful wounds. While Shimazu was running from the battle, he found himself standing in a weird corridor in front of a man called Murasaki.
This corridor has hundreds of doors on both sides; Murasaki sends Shimazu to the nearest entrance to find himself in a weird new world that is filled with monsters and strange characters.
