[ Story ]

Kusanagi-Roppeita continues his wanderings to evade off his pursuers after failing to kill, under orders, his group leader Aochi-Godayu, a deserter.
When he arrives at a beach, he is taken away to an island by one of his pursuers who has disguised herself as a mad woman diver. On the island he is attacked by a number of similar woman assassins who, after fierce fighting, fall to his sword.
Roppeita settles down in a village where the villagers are on the brink of starvation after a series of droughts and under pressure of a heavy land tax.
Meanwhile, Toki (Masako Izumi), grand- daughter of village headman Jisaku, finds a leather bag containing gold dust. This bag belongs to Tarao-Matahei (Seiichiro Kameishi) who once defended the village against an attack by wandering samurai
Learning that Jisaku is dead by the hand of the evil magistrate, Roppeita takes up his sword to avenge him.
After defeating all his foes however, he finds himself confronted by Uzuki-Kyonosuke (lsao Natsuyagi), sent by Aochi. When the duel ends Roppeita leaves the village in pursuit of peace, despite Toki's plea that he stays with her.
