Synopsis:
In 1582, Japan was attacked by a terrible Dragon from the sea known as the Wani. Tako Shamara rode out to do battle with the beast, taking his family honor with him. When neither man nor beast returns Tako's son swears an oath that his family's honor will one day be cleared. That day comes in 1979, when Tako's modern day ancestor must fight the monster.
