Plot[edit | edit source]

Izuna and her ninja clan is looking for a place to settle down after their old master Mugen decided that ninjas were obsolete, and booted them from his castle. Upon arriving at a village that's suitably out of the way for their "Grandboss", Gen-An, they decide to stay at an inn when Grandboss wanders off.

While trying to find Grandboss, Izuna manages to offend the gods of the village while trying to steal a large floating crystal. Everyone in the area starts behaving strangely and now Izuna has to descend into the various shrines for the gods in order to set things right.
