Getting you wise of the plot
There are three brothers, the great warriors. The eldest one exploits a fan to fight, the middle one named Soramaru Kumo can handle two family swords at the same time, which he may not even take out of the sheath. The junior brother has just to assist the other two, as he’s still too young and inexperienced in fighting.
However, everything is not so much simple in this story. The thing is that Meiji Restoration takes place and the prohibition to wear swords is announced. This law was followed by someone while others preferred to rebel. The brothers are the rebellions surely as without swords thier life goal of catching criminals can not be achieved.
