Story

今を溯ること130余年。
この国は応仁の乱以来の激動の時代を迎えていた。
後にこの時代は「幕末」と呼ばれ、
多くの人々が志に生き、
志に死んだ時代として語り継がれていった…。

…愛、夢、希望…何もかも醜い。
人は何故かくも醜い…?
浄化、そう、浄化しなければ…

太古の昔から「現世」[うつしょ]を守護してきた神の一人が
そう呟いた時、
誰にも語り継がれなかった、
もうひとつの激動の時代が幕を開けた。

Now going upstream about 130 years.  (around the year 1863)
This country is facing a period of upheaval since the Ounin War (1467-1477).
Since then, this era has been called the [Bakumatsu Era] ,
where a large amount of people had the will to live,
the will to die.  That was what this era was like, as handed down by the
generations...

...love, dreams, aspiration...anything and everything are ugly.
Why are people even ugly?
Purification.  Yes, we must purify, otherwise...

From the olden days, the ancient times, one god that has protected the
[Present World] has just muttered those words.  At the same time,
the curtain has just opened for another era of upheaval.  One story that
nobody has passed on yet.


基本操作方法
1b. Basic Operation Method

The direction keys are represented by the ten-key number pad.

Up-back     Up       Up-forward

         7   8   9

Back     4   5   6   Forward

         1   2   3

Down-back   Down     Down-forward

X = X button, weak slash, cancel
O = Circle button, strong slash, decision
S = Square button, kick
T = Triangle button, repellence
_ = Hold that direction for about 2 seconds
or = One button or the other
Start = Start button, game start, pause, release pause, on the way
participation, continue
Select = Select button, provocation
L1 = Certain kill skill 1
L2 = Certain kill skill 2
R1 = Certain kill skill 3
R2 = Certain kill skill 4
Select+Start = Soft reset, return to title screen

So 236+XO means down, down-forward, forward plus X and O together.


About Repellence

There are two kinds of repellence.  One is the common skill repel and the
other is the certain kill skill repel.  Either one will stop the opponent's
attack and make them open to attack.  All commands are for facing right.
After a successful repel, press the Triangle Button once again to perform an
immediate counter strike.

is game over (since it is a one round match).  If you win, then you will
recover all energy and move on to the next match.  The opponent usually starts
with half life, but sometimes even less.  The more matches you win, the more

Substory
He was picked up by his sword skill teacher, and along with
Moriya and Yuki, they were raised like siblings.  At that
time, Kaede had mysterious powers which made him frightened.
For Kaede, these people were natural family to him, inside
of that, the one who taught him the art of the sword, Moriya
was one person that he trusted.  However, when Kaede was 12
years old, an incident occurred.  When he and Yuki were
returning from an errand, the spectacle Kaede saw from the
doujo (the hall used for training) was one of his teacher's
corpse and Moriya swinging a blood stained sword.  Everything
that he believed in, now just crumbled away.  While in a daze,
Kaede assaulted Moriya with his own sword.  Moriya didn't even
bother to avoid Kaede's attack, and took the blow on his left
shoulder.  Moriya didn't say a word and left the hall.  After
that incident, 5 years have passed.  In order to find out the
truth of that incident, Kaede went on a journey to pursue
Moriya and to get revenge on his teacher's killer.

instant, and when he became aware what just happened, all he saw before
his eyes was the corpse of his teacher that rolled around.

幼い頃、天災で両親を亡くし、

彼らは、雪を暖かく迎えいれた。外
見の違いにコンプレックスを抱いて
いた雪はそんな彼らを信頼し、憧れ

腕力の劣る雪は師匠から槍を習い、
そのリーチと遠心力で非力を補って

お姉さん的存在、また独りの女性と

Substory
At at very young age, she lost both her parents to natural calamity.
She was picked up by the same teacher as Kaede and Moriya.  They gave
her a warm welcome.  A discrepancy of her outer looks, Yuki was holding
complex in the arms while having confidence in them.  She admired them
and began learning the art of the sword.  Compared to Kaede and Moriya,
she was lacking in physical strength, so she took the spear of her
teacher.  Using the reach and centrifugal force of the spear, it
compensated for her powerlessness.  Mutually, the three polished their
skills, sometimes with Yuki being the existence of the older sister,
with other times being a lonely woman.  All the days spend in that life
made her happy.  Then when she was 13, that incident occurred, which
caused the three people to scatter about.  That was 5 years back...
Yuki wanted to stop Kaede, gather her thoughts about Moriya, and find
out the truth about that incident on that day.  With her teacher's
spear in her hands, she sets out to pursue those two.

サブストーリー
゛地獄門゛の影響で時代が再び混乱
しはじめた。命懸けの充実感…一般

知られている。紫鏡にとっては、より
大きいな充実感を得られる絶好の機会
であった。゛より多くの…より強い

でいた。そんな時、謎の男に声を掛
けられる。「伝説の人斬りよ…好き
なだけ人を斬らせてやろう…。」そ
う言って男は闇の中へ消えた。紫鏡
は、ただニヤリと笑っていた。

Substory
The influence of "Hell's Gate" caused confusion once again
in this era.  The enrichment of risking one's life...  It is
already known how it feels even by killing general people.
For Shikyou, he needed something bigger, and now was the
perfect opportunity.  "Even more...  Even more powerful beings...
I want to kill them..."  That is what Shikyou's heart exclaimed.
Just at the same time, a mysterious man's voice could be heard.
"The legendary assassin, you can kill as many people as you like."
That's what he said (it is Shinnosuke) and disappeared into the
darkness.  Shikyou just gave a broad grin and laughed.

Substory
Juuzou was sitting in his own room, with more spare time than
he knew what to do with.  He didn't even pay to stay at the
Ichijou residence.  He thought he heard the sound of some
footsteps, then he felt the shock of someone hitting him on the
back of the head.  When he turned around he saw Akari standing
there with her arms folded.  "We're going to investigate the
Hell's Gate!  Time to travel!  Now hurry and get prepared! If
you are slow, I'll leave you behind!"  After that one sided
conversation, in the blink of the eye, she was gone.  A few
seconds past before the sounds of the footsteps were gone.
Juuzou looked troubled when he had to get up.  "So, the
investigation of Hell's Gate, huh...  This looks to be another
one of those tiresome travels"  Before departing, he thought
about the tomboy nature of Akari.

Her existence is that of the observer and defender of the

the Hell's Gate.  Akari was called to her father's room, and
he ordered her to investigate that place.  "Really?  All right,
leave it me!"  Although he repeatedly said only an investigation,
he still looked up into the sky, and thought about how Akari
could have an outline of exterminating the source of evil.

"In this world, nothing outrivals unskillness.  I can't be here."
The shadow melts into darkness as he mutters those words.  There
are corpses of men that roll about at his feet.  Those foolish
swordsmen, who called themselves the strongest, where no match for
his technique.  In fact, they seemed like babies in front of him.
Fresh blood dripped from the two short swords.  "However... This
will not show the proof of the strongest..."  Swordsmen of that
degree of ability would not be even considered a fight.  In other
words, that is just atrocity, and [massive killing].  "Is there
any strong opponents out there?"  Then one day, Zantetsu heard of
the rumor of the [devil].  He thought for sure if he defeated this
devil, it would prove his confidence as him being the strongest.

Substory
On one night, where he was encouraged to train at the
head temple, Rekka saw a deep crimson evil star fall in
the eastern direction.  In haste, he ran to see the high
priest, to tell of the circumstances.  Then the high
priest looked into the jewel and was frightened.  He saw
that from the land of the rising sun, the calamity that will
happen.  Before long, this calamity will spread to the continent
(China), then spread all over the world.  It would invite the
world to darkness.  To prevent the world from being dyed in
black, the "growing dragon" Rekka set his feet in the country
of the samurai.

を買われ、゛玄武゛の守護神となり、
その要職に就く男達の養成をする傍
ら、好きな釣りに勤しんでいた。5
年前、その翁の元に楓という少年が

Substory
He has awakened the ultimate essential point, the [Buddha Throw Away
Sword], and completed the "True Heart Style".  By buying that
heart and technique, he became the guardian deity of Genbu (the
occult warrior).  In settling in this important position, he stood
close by while training other guys while diligently catching fish.
Five years ago, a boy named Kaede came running to him.  Okina taught
Kaede everything about the sword arts, and raised Kaede as one of
his own.  Kaede's improvement was something to keep an eye on, and
before long, he could take a round from Okina.  One day, something
gave Kaede a determination, which made him silent and left Okina
behind.  However, Okina was not one not to notice.  "Oh well, to
make sure that boy doesn't wander in the wrong direction, I'll
follow him.  That and I must soon put a settlement on this."
Taking his favorite fish basket on his back, and his fishing rod
in hand, he slowly begins his pursuit of Kaede.

サブストーリー
死して後も、武蔵の魂は暗黒を彷
徨っていた。「世が戦乱なれば我が
剣術に救う者などおらぬ…無念…」
その時、暗黒の底から声が聞こえた。
「その願い…叶えてやろう。」と同時
に、武蔵は眩しい光に包まれた。
だんだんとその目に光が、その体に
は力が戻り始めた。「現世だ。」武蔵
は呟き、まだ完全では無い体を引き
ずり歩きだした。

Substory
Even after death, Musashi's spirit was wandering in
the darkness.  "If the world is at war, then my sword
skills won't save anyone...  How regretful..."  At that
moment, he heard a voice from the depths of the darkness.
"That wish, I shall grant you that."  At the same time,
Musashi was engulfed in dazzling light.  Gradually, those
eyes and that body begin to fill with strength.  "It's the
Present World"  Musashi muttered, as he dragged along his
incomplete body and began his walk.

Shikyou.  It looks like this story will continue in the second game of the

`Raccoon'

No Story or Profile

- She plays exactly like Normal Akari.  The only difference is that some of
her Secret Skills have a raccoon motif to it.  Her Super Secret Skill
(Ceremony God - The Cosmos) has a raccoon tail attached to it, and her Secret
Skill Ceremony God - Firmament has her throwing some kind of metal wash
basin.  Purify Princess is a raccoon statue instead of a demon, and her Latent
Secret Skill has a parade of raccoons trampling over the opponent.

- AkaRI's final boss in Story Mode is Normal Akari.  After you win, you find
out that AkaRI was a raccoon in disguise.  Akari gets mad and begins to
chase the imposter around the world.

隠しキャラクター使用方法
The method in using the secret characters

- In order to select and be able to play as Musashi, Kagami, and Awakened
Kagami, go to the player select screen and press the top four L and R buttons.
That would be L1+L2+R1+R2.  Now move the cursor off the screen and those three
become available for use.

- In order to select and be able to play as Sanada Kojirou, AkaRI and Deku,
first you must clear the game at least once.  Any character is fine and you
can go through the Story Mode or Short Mode. (Use Awakened Kagami for an easy
time).  Save the game to memory card if you want to access the character more
quickly.  Now go to the player select screen and press L1+L2+R1+R2.  Now these
three new characters will become available as well as the bosses.  Just move
the cursor off to the left or right to see your choices.  Look at the top row
and bottom row to find them.  Once you save the game after releasing the
secret characters, they will be available for use immediately the next time
you play.
