Among these powers, there was a prosperous port town where rich traders govern themselves with a conference system called Egoo-Kai.But a mysterious violent Ninja group, called 'Kinme-Kyoo', appeared in this peaceful port town. They were ambitious of building up an evil kingdom of themselves, and they did not hesitate to take any cruel means to attain their object.The Egoo-Kai, for fear that this power should grow stronger, wanted to capture the boss of this Ninja group and to destroy their evil ambition. And they brought this matter up to another Ninja group which dwelled deep in the mountain.Thus, Akakage and his fellow ninjas were sent to this port town and began the heroic battles among Ninjas with mysterious arts and magical powers!
