StoryEdit

From many years ago, a ninja named Kagetora of the Inuishuu clan (イヌイシュウ クラン or 犬イシュウ 氏族). He devoted his life to protect Beni-Hime-Sama a.k.a. Princess Beni (べに ひめ さま/紅 姫 様). As it so happens they were being chased by their attackers so they fleed into the lake to escape the assassins who were behind them. They floated to the bottom of the lake together, but unfortunely they got seprated from each other because of a time loop hole (or a time warp) leading Kagetora to the future (present day to Beni's) era. Kagetora shows up just in time to rescue Beni from her kiddnaper by accidently knocking her off the edge of the building, but he catches her as they glide down on the side of the building with his ninja claws (or something kind of like a garden rake). He thinks that Beni Fujiwara (藤原紅/ふじわら べに) is really the Princess, but later he finds out the truth that she's not the Princess. To be continued....
