This story is about two childhood friends, Sayaka and Mushin, who have both practiced kendo for a long time. Sayaka is fairly strong and Mushin is not, but he dreams of protecting her anyway.

Due to rivals popping up constantly, "evil organizations" trying to destroy Sayaka's and Mushin's Dojo and even several love rivals who want to destroy their closeness; who are simply attracted by either Sayaka's charisma or Mushin's kindness....
