genre- action/period drama

synopsis- It is a fact that the Samurai were the world's most feared warriors of their time

It is a little admitted fact that many Samurai were pederasts

Like their Greek and Roman counterparts, they often took their students as lovers. Complications arose when the student became, inevitably, as strong as the master, and decided to find his own student to nurture

As you could imagine, high emotions and trained swordsmen do not mix

This is a classic story of revenge fueled by desire, rejection, and the need for honour

And this is a truly unconventional story, driven by men who were as far from the modern gay stereotype as could possibly be
