Ayashi, Part 2, Vol. 3-4Book - 2009 | Japanese
During the spring of 1847 a procession of shogunate forces was dispatched to patrol the road leading to the Nikko shrine. The official purpose of the patrol was to clear the roads of all bandits and vagrants in time for the Shogun's annual visit. In reality the operation was a cover for the large scale Youi eradication. While traveling the Nikko road, Yukiatsu and Hozaburo encounter a strange group of monks in possession of a mysterious object known only as 'The Killing Stone.' Using this artifact, these monks, the Western Ones, are now in command of a massive Youi army.
