As Sutemaru was describing how the women were, they created brutal murders and slay so many enemies that their pale blue coats turned black, due to the blood that were being painted on them. However, it is unclear on how many years that the members were serving Shigeyoshi.

Operations Edit

The Shinsengumi's objective was to capture Susanoo and slay Keiichiro, if getting lucky. Originally, their ally, Houkouin, who is also close to Shigeyoshi supposed to do the job, but complains about being bored and has her own interest in other things.

  • Kite for flight
  • Isamu and Souji in their Onigami battling against Keiichiro and Hyougo Asai

The three main members in the group are all Onigami masters. They specializes in steam puppets and created chaos at Shigeyoshi's post sentencing event after slaughtering Minister Naosuke Ii's men to respond to Shigeyoshi's Onigami, Takemikazuchi.
