- Detached and cynical Gabimaru is a cold-blooded shinobi assassin who is about to face execution
- He meets Yamada Asaemon-Sagiri who offers him a quest to find a rare elixir in a mystical island
- A risky historical adventure with characters carrying violent pasts and their own reasons to live
Gabimaru the Empty, a former ninja assassin known as a heartless husk of a man, spends his days on death row wondering when an executioner skilled enough to so much as harm him will arrive. There's no meaning to him continuing to live...or so he thought. The lady executioner, Asaemon the Beheader, rekindles his hope with an astounding proposition. If he ever wishes to see his beloved wife again, he is, under the auspices of the shogunate, to embark on a perilous voyage to the mysterious mystic island said to house the elixir of immortality. Should he be the one among many rival death-row fiends and scoundrels to find the elixir, he'll earn a full exoneration, and, more importantly, a chance at an ordinary married life with the light of his life--the woman who made the world seem not so ugly. What awaits them is a journey like no other!
