Minato's team has made it safely through their last battle, only to come up against something they never expected. Why is an old friend working for the bad guy...? Uzume is between a rock and a hard place. Her lover, Chiho, is deathly ill, which means they have to rely on the "kindness" of the most ruthless player in the game-Higa of the East. Unfortunately for them, Higa has set Uzume squarely against her former friends. His command? Retrieve the Jinki at Izumo Inn by whatever means necessary... Will Minato's Sekirei be able to rescue both Uzume and Chiho before it's too late...?!
