Masanosuke Akitsu is a painfully shy yet skilled samurai down on his luck. A fateful and surprisingly lucrative encounter with a mysterious man who calls himself "Yaichi" draws Masu into a group of people who kidnap wealthy men for ransom.
Although well received among English-speaking anime critics, the manga and anime have inspired few English-language fanworks. There are under 50 fanworks on AO3 and less than 10 on Fanfiction.net. Fanvids and fan animation are fairly rare as well.
Japanese fandom created a number of doujinshi.
Akitsu Masanosuke/Yaichi aka Seinoshin is the most popular ship.
