From the mind that brought you the Legendary Monogatari series, Zaregoto, and the Pretty Boy Detective Club, comes a Tale of Blades from the Land of the Rising Sun.

Once Upon a Time in Japan...

The hunt is on for the 12 masterworks of legendary swordsmith Kiki Shikizaki, whose blades reigned over the warring states period.

Led by Togame the Schemer, grand commander of arms for the yanari shogunate military directorate, owari bakufu, and her hired sword, Shishika Yasuri, Seventh Master of the Kyotoryu, of the swordless sword school, they criss-cross Japan searching for and facing the owners of the mutant blades, the Twelve Possessed, which can determine the destiny of Japan. This is all complicated by the 12 bosses of the maniwa ninja clan with their unique powers (also after the blades) and political intrigues from the highest level of the bakufu (the Princess Negative).

Brimming with action, romance, and unexpected wisdom, often tongue-in-cheek, and shot through with ninjas, samurai, and secret moves, Sword Tales is a gift for fans of adventure.
