“Gabimaru the Hollow”, a ninja from Iwagakure Village who is known for his cold ritual, is now dead. Tired of death and betrayal, he seeks to die.

He wants to go home and see his wife, the reason for his happiness and why his job as a murderer began to hamper him. Therefore, he refuses to die. Asaemon the executor, a famous criminal murderer, notices this and makes a proposal to the ninja.
