Nine-year-old twins Bu Kotoku and Shunkaku (future Amiboshi and Suboshi) lost their parents in Kutou’s Civil War and are taken in by distant relatives. The older and stronger twin cares for his younger and weaker twin while they are bullied by these relatives for three years. One night, the younger twin, Shunkaku, wakes up to find his older brother is missing. Shunkaku believes that his brother has abandoned him and becomes a very violent boy who joins a guerilla squad called “Basara” whose goal is to kill Kuto’s general, Nakago. Driven by his hate towards Kotoku, Shunkaku becomes very skilled at using his new weapon, Ryuseisui. When Kotoku, who had left the relatives' house to search for the Priestess of Seiryuu, sees a shooting star one night, he gets a bad feeling and hurries back to his relatives house…

Kotoku, Shunkaku, listen well.
When your poor mother gave birth to you two, it was very painful. But when your two precious faces appeared before our eyes, we felt like we were ascending to the Heavens.
Boys, in this village, twins are thought of as important protecting-deities. Mother and Father are so proud of you.
But not only because of that.
We thought that perhaps you were not only protecting-deities of this village, but maybe also protecting-deities of this country….Mother and Father thought this when we saw you two.
Your lives are gifts from the Heavens. No matter what happens, help each other, love each other, and live strongly. Even if you two should be separated physically, link your souls together as one.
However, if you should see a shooting star, that is a gloomy sign that bears tidings of your separation. When that happens, you shall fight with your life on the line. Kotoku shall protect Shunkaku, and Shunkaku shall protect Kotoku in return.
You boys are our pride and joy; because….you are Kutou’s pride and joy….
