Once again blood flows in the streets of Kanto as ancient warriors who have been reincarnated into the students of the seven top schools do battle. One such student, Hakufu Sonsaku, arrives on the scene and is rumored to be the legendary Shou-Haou. But can this blonde air-head with the overly-endowed assets actually be the legendary Shou-Haou?
