The story is set during the age of samurai in Japan and tells the story of a group of criminals selected to serve as doubles for the special police force Shinsengumi. Only one of the original Shinsengumi survives, so the criminals must act as the Shinsengumi to maintain peace and order in feudal Kyoto.
