œStory Summaryœ
Kaidohmaru is one of 'the four knights', who work under the general Minamoto-no-Raikoh. They risks their lives to protect the peace of the capital, Kyo. Sakata-no-Kintoki a.k.a. Kaidohmaru is brought up as a boy and fights battles like a boy, but in reality, she is a girl. She becomes to love Raikoh who is also fighting for peace with her, but he is hardly aware of her feeling.
Opposite of Kintoki as good, there is an evil princess, Ouni-Hime, another main character. She used to play with Kintoki in their childhood. Beautiful but evil Ouni-Hime finds Kintoki beside Raikoh one day and becomes jealous of Kintoki being close to Raikoh. Because she is so jealous, she tries to destroy not only these two but also the whole capital in the course.
Dramatic plot is developed by puzzled emotions between these three characters.
