1963, 93 min., 35 mm, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Kenji Misumi. With Raizo Ichikawa, Tomisaburo Wakayama.

This action-packed epic stars Ichikawa Raizo as an honest man who joins the Shinsengumi out of admiration for its leader, Isami Kondo (Tomisaburo Wakayama), and because he wants to die as a samurai. But as his involvement grows, reality and idealism come into deadly conflict.
