Also Called:Shine On! Bakumatsu Bad Boys | ブッチギレ!
In the wake of a brutal assault perpetrated by the treacherous Masked Demons, the storied Eighth Division of the Shinsengumi in Kyoto faces utter decimation. Only Heisuke Toudou, the last surviving member, clings to life, his body battered and broken. But instead of succumbing to despair, Toudou resolves to resurrect his fallen comrades and rebuild the esteemed law-enforcing squad that remains loyal to the shogunate. Summoned by Katamori Matsudaira, the influential feudal lord of the region, Toudou devises an audacious plan. Seeking redemption, he seeks out eight convicts, offering them a chance for salvation. Casting aside their old names and past transgressions, these condemned individuals are tasked with becoming substitutes for the revered Shinsengumi captains. Though the proposition is perilous and fraught with uncertainty, seven of the convicts seize the opportunity, while one meets an immediate, merciless fate at the hands of the former assassin, Sakuya. Yet, transforming a band of hardened criminals into loyal and disciplined agents of justice proves to be Toudou's greatest challenge. The impulsive and vengeance-driven Ichibanboshi, in particular, poses a constant threat to the success of Toudou's ambitious strategy. His burning desire for retribution against the Masked Demons, who callously robbed him of his family, threatens to derail the entire mission. Sworn to protect the shogunate from imperialists and foreign invaders, Toudou finds himself embroiled in a perilous race against rival factions. Kogorou Katsura's group, among others, conspires to seize power in the twilight of the Edo period, their ulterior motives slowly unraveling. As tensions mount and the fate of the nation hangs precariously in the balance, a tumultuous battle for dominance ensues. Will Toudou and his makeshift Shinsengumi prevail or succumb to the relentless onslaught of their adversaries? The stage is set for a gripping tale of honor, sacrifice, and the relentless pursuit of justice.
