One day, a youngster showed up out of nowhere at the firefighter team Ki-Gumi.
He would not tell his name or where he came from.
He was nicknamed Gonbei.
Gonbei was, in fact, a raccoon prince.
He changed into a human and pledged to avenge the murder of his relatives by foxes.
However, he could not find the foxes' trail and he spent his days idly by secretly falling in love with the daughter of a firefighter.
For their part, foxes also changed into humans and took over the Kira Mansion to commit endless crimes.
Kyubiko (Nine-tailed Fox), the leader of the fox clan, held a grudge against humans and attempting to overthrow Edo.
Fires occurred one after another in Edo. Gonbei finally found the fox clan and raided the Kira Mansion together with the other firefighters.
“Let the snow fall in summer. Let cherry blossoms bloom in winter.”
What does it mean to live? What is human?
Gobnei, a heteromorphic being, works a miracle in Edo.
