Recognizing the dire threat, the Shinobiclans cast aside their longstanding rivalries, uniting in a resolute stand to protect humanity.
Legend speaks of a deity emergingfrom the celestial realm, revealing themselves before the united Shinobi. Revealing an ancient trial, completion of which would bestow the Shinobi withan array of incredible powers. These newfound abilities held the potential to aid them in banishing the demonsback to the depths of hell. Aware that this marked only the start andanticipating the demons' resurgence, the surviving Shinobi established the “Crimson StarEmpire,” under the leadership of the Crimson Hero. The deity then severed this empire from the.
Constraints of time, entrusting themwith safeguarding the “first flame.” Endowed with a godly energy, the”first flame” holds the ability to break the seal imprisoning the demon god”the fallen.” Whispers persist that even now, the opposing forces wage theirconcealed war in the shadows. A warrior strides toward the palace, wielding a sword in one hand andclutching a bag in the other. He bows and kneels before his lord, affirming that the assigned taskhad been successfully accomplished. Lord Crimson inquires aboutthe disposition of the body.
From the bag comes out the hands of his foe, stating that he has fled buttooks his arms in the process. Unconvinced, the lord declares his intention to dispatch the cells to locatethe fugitive and eliminate him. The warrior raises a question regarding the cells. In response, the master emphasizesthe utmost secrecy of the mission, stressing that even the clan heads must remainunaware to avoid dishonoring the Crimson Empire. The warrior nodded in understanding, yet alingering question remained in his thoughts. Yasuke, assigned to a secret missionagainst his own formidable mentor,.
Wondered how the lord could becertain victory was attainable. The Crimson lord responded that hisadversary had forsaken his family for power, sacrificing all he vowed to safeguard inhis insatiable pursuit of clan leadership. However, Yasuke's sole aspiration is toprotect the vulnerable through strength. The Crimson lord had observed him for years,conquering challenges that had defeated others. Upon receiving these words, a profound senseof fulfillment blossomed across Yasuke. The lord explained thatYasuke's foe, the Night Hand, sought strength through absorbing demon soulsinto his blade. But lacking a strong will, this negative energy wouldcorrupt and devour his soul.
Nonetheless, Yasuke managed to overcome thenight hand. This achievement led the lord to proclaim Yasuke as the new clan head,bestowing upon him this prestigious title. The lord excuses Yasuke, noting that the warrior'swife is anticipating his return. Simultaneously, the Crimson lord prepares to mobilize thecells to conclusively resolve the matter. As the story continues, Yasuke hops branch to branchas swiftly as possible excited to see his wife and share the newsof him becoming the new clan head. Under the luminous glow of a crescent moon, Yasuke arrives at his destination.
Informed by the guards, Yasuke learnsthat his wife is waiting within. Upon entering, Yasuke is startled by a loud scream To his astonishment, it's his wifewho is on the brink of giving birth. Our valiant warrior rushestowards his wife's side, his heart filled with a mixtureof concern and anticipation. However, Aniko's concern centers onthe blood staining her husband's form. Yasuke consoles her, assuringAniko that the blood isn't his. Aniko, however, is in noticeable discomfort, her face strained from theintensity of the contractions.
Abruptly, another warrior placeshis hands firmly on the ground. And begins the sealing ritual, channelinghis focus into the intricate process. Suddenly, a deafening bangreverberates from the outside. Confused by the situation, Yasukestruggles to comprehend the events and urgently demands an explanationfor the disturbance outside. A sensation of unease courses through Yasuke'ssenses, hinting that something is amiss. Out of nowhere, another warrior enters and urgently informs the clan head that thetemple's defenses have been breached. Yasuke presses for an explanation, demandingto know the details of the situation outside.
However, in a sudden twist, the warriorbegins emanating a sinister dark aura. Sensing the escalating tension, Yasuke instructsthe others to complete the ritual swiftly. The warrior who recently arrived continues toexude a terrifying aura, its intensity growing. Suddenly, something resembling a dark entitybegins to emerge from the warrior's body. A grotesque hand, as ifclawing its way from within, slowly inches its way out of thewarrior's form, contorted and ominous. With a sudden burst of motion, it lungesforth, the whole arm outstretched. Yasuke is rendered speechless, disbelief gripping him as he beholds the surreal sceneunfolding before his very eyes.
A creature emerges from the body,remarking on the difficulty of its entry and emphasizing that using the guard'sbody was the only way to make it possible. Aware of the resilience ofShinobi against possession, Yasuke's anger flares as he demands to knowthe identity of the demon standing before him. Offended, the creature commandsthe Shinobi to be silent. Asserting his distinction from lower hell demons, the creature clarifies that he hailsfrom the sixth hell, a realm apart. A Shinobi identifies the mark on the creature'shead, linking it to that of “the fallen,” and proceeds to label theentity as the black halo demon.
Swiftly responding, he directs another Shinobi to swiftly erect a protectivebarrier around the mother. Understanding the urgency, the other Shinobiimmediately begins channeling energy, focusing on creating the required barrier. Yet, with a single malevolentsmirk from the demon, the Shinobi's life is abruptly extinguished as his head is twisted by an unseenhand that materializes above him. The shinobi and Aniko cannot believe their eyes. Yasuke, too, is taken aback bythe sudden and unexpected assault.
The black halo demon adamantlyrefuses to be referred to as a demon, expressing disdain for the termas he finds it unappealing. The surviving Shinobi urgently informs Yasukethat they must depart, explaining that without the presence of the other Shinobi, he cannotexecute the protective ritual effectively. Yasuke concurs and informs Aniko that he willcreate a diversion to allow her to escape. Aniko, filled with concern,urges Yasuke not to hold back, emphasizing that his adversary hails from thesixth hell and poses a significant threat.

Resilience to look after herself, even inthe moments leading up to giving birth. Steeling himself, Yasuke readies for action, interjecting sternly as he orders thedemon to cease discussing his wife. With a sinister tone, the demon cynicallyinforms the Shinobi that they are incapable of grasping the gravity of the impendingevents that will transpire tonight. Rushing forward with unbridled determination, the demon exclaims to Yasuke that the birth ofthe child will signal the commencement of the end.

Yet, the onslaught doesn't relent, compellinghim into a dance of evasive maneuvers.

Amidst the echoing footstepsdrawing closer to Aniko, she clings tightly to the baby in her arms, her heart racing as she realizes that thepossessed shinobi have tracked them down. Among them, one holds the charred remainsof the incinerated shinobi priest.
Aniko's realization sinks in deeper as shecomprehends that the threat won't subside, even if they manage to survive, because thecrucial sealing ritual remains unfinished. Thus, not only the demons but also the empireitself will be after the baby's life. For now, she gently places the baby on the ground and with unwavering determination, Aniko positions herself protectively in front of thebaby, her voice firm as she speaks, proclaiming that Yasuke must continuehis journey and take care of Sekiryu.

Reminding him that this is merely the beginningof the torment he plans to inflict upon him. Retreating through the portal, thedemon's words linger in the air. He vows to never forgive Yasukefor robbing him of this moment and intriguingly suggeststhat while the demon has lost, Yasuke might have lost notjust one, but two things. And just like that, the demon vanishesthrough the portal, leaving no trace behind, and the portal itself dissipates into thin air. His heart races as he wonders aboutAniko's well-being, a sense of urgency and concern compellinghim to take swift action.
He gazes at the distant site, a mixtureof anxiety and determination in his single eye, his mind racing throughpossibilities and potential outcomes. Amidst the thunderous downpour, Yasuke presses on toward the explosion'sorigin, rain-soaked and undeterred.
