The story is set in modern Japan in a fictional city called Hanakyo City, where the city is mixed with old and new appearances from the feudal age and the modern age. The story is about a young man who accidentally became part of a task force which saves the world from evil demons known as the Onijin.
Ken Asano is a master swordsman of iaijutsu who recently just lost his dojo due to lack of money and is looking for a new job to do, unfortunately, he lacks experience in many of the job requirements. After noticing people running away from something, Ken went to see what the problem was, it was a monster with four armored people fighting it. When a little girl was about to be attacked after the four armor people were knocked away, Ken took out his sword and fought the monster, saving the girl but was almost killed in the process. Once the blue armored man got up, he pushed away the monster before Ken was going to be killed but the man in blue had not noticed that he dropped a watch from his belt, so with a desperate will to win, the girl in pink armor told Ken how to use it and so he transformed. After Ken had transformed, he defeated the monster in a split second after he drew his sword. As the story goes on, Ken Asano, Lee Wulong, Kiseki Torii, Kunisato Heishiro, and Lisa Saturn learn to get along better and meet more enemies and allies on the way to defeating the Onijin King, Shuten-dōji.
