Legend speaks of seven heroes, each one bearing the power of one of the
stars of the Big Dipper. Two of these stars are constantly in conflict,
destined to battle and throw the world into chaos...
Not that Taitou has
ever paid much attention to old stories. Headstrong and defiant, he is
the last in his village to complete his coming-of-age ceremony - a fact
his sister Laila incessantly teases him about. When he is finally
deemed worthy, he is presented with the Kenkaranbu, an ancient sword
that can only be drawn by a true hero. As the frustrated Taitou
struggles to unsheathe the sword, a mysterious thief appears, making
off with the blade and citing the legend of the Big Dipper. The stars
have been set in motion, as Taitou sets off after the Kenkaranbu and
the truth of his own destiny...Hiromu Arakawa, creator of Fullmetal
Alchemist, brings the legend to life!
