Shinzo, the main character, is the son of the Watanabes, which comprises of mother and an older sister. At 12 he lost his father who left an unfinished war, which he will later participate. His life will change with the arrival of an Ainu girl, who will support him in any situation, and other events he will later discover.
He's a trained swordsman, a fearless fighter and a firearm expert, with very impressive skills. Due to the lack of magic powers, he carries a high caliber handgun, Spike, but he is rarely seen fighting without his sword, Vicious. He has nothing to lose and he will begin a battle against the forces of Hell, not only to save the world, but to protect what he considers important in life: his beloved ones.
