Note: This is more or less the same as the opening from the Xbox 360 version. The one key difference here is superior image quality. Contrary to popular belief though, this is not so much due to disc capacity but rather the fact that Sony offers a better solution for video compression. I will be quite amused if Microsoft, after making a switch to Blu-ray with Xbox One, still has their publishing partners using antiquated codecs.

Kenjou trained hard every day under the tutelage of his uncle Kazuto. One day, when he held a sword he found in the storehouse, he lost consciousness. When he came to, he found himself in a place he did not recognize. He met a girl who introduced herself as Oda Saburou Kuon Nobunaga. She held out her hand to a stunned Kenjou and asked him to become her husband and accompany her on the road to national supremacy.
They traveled across the country, racking up victories in this period of social upheaval. However, there was one enemy they could not defeat: the oni. These man-eating, blood-drinking beasts soon took over all of Japan, plunging the country into hell. However, Kuon and Kenjou vowed to continue fighting, issuing a written appeal to all the influential lords: “Samurai who are not afraid of even the oni, gather under me and let us save Japan together!” – Hau~ Omochikaeri~!
Note: The raw video is weak. Look for a version 2 encode in December, hopefully.

Note: This is a PC port of the Xbox 360 visual novel which was based on the 2009 anime from Bee Train which was based on the original visual novel from 2000. So Nitroplus basically adapted an adaptation of their work. Why am I reminded of Inception? lol!
