    • Synopsis
    • Kyutaro Madarame was once a formidable swordsman who earned the nickname “Madara the Devil.” Now he is masterless, and lives in his hometown with his wife Shizu, daughter Haru, and nagging mother-in-law, Tae.
      One day, Kyutaro reluctantly decides to take an opportunity to work as a sword instructor in the Tosa domain on the island outpost of Shikoku. However, just before he and his beloved cat Tamanojo reach the port for their voyage to Shikoku, a mysterious ninja steals their belongings, and their ship leaves without them. Nevertheless, he manages to rent a small boat, and sets sail for Tosa.
      However, stormy seas eventually leave the duo shipwrecked on an unfamiliar shore, and Tamanojo is abducted by the local people, who speak a strange language. Is this really Tosa? What treasure does this place conceal? And can Kyutaro rescue his furry friend?
