The young girl Daisy, whom Itto is sworn to protect, has been abducted by a local warlord named Godekai. Beaten almost to death during the kidnapping, Itto refuses to give up. He leads a posse of villagers on a raid against the warlord's compound. But, if he can't rescue Daisy, Itto will settle for a coming away with a bargaining chip ? Godekai's son! It's time to deal, but waiting in the wings is a third party who would just as soon see everybody dead: the agents ? both human and android ? of the Cygnat Owari Corporation. With the full cooperation of Kazuo Koike, the writer and co-creator of Lone Wolf and Cub, Lone Wolf 2100 takes the basic concept of a warrior and child into the future for an action-packed story that combines Bushido sensibilities with science fiction settings!
