The Way of The Sword

The Way Of The Sword is a historical fictional story talking about the Edo Period in Japan. The rise and downfall of Kenkichi Sakaibara. While this story does have historical story it is a mix of fiction. Kenkichi seeks to make a name for himself and defy all odds. (NOTE: This story is not related in any way to my ongoing "shounen" version of The Way of The Sword.)

For the sake of everyone, there will be a mix of different Japanese names within the story. I go on breaks here and then to figure how I shall continue the story. Quality>>>>> Quantity.
