About this Anime:

Based loosely on China's Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Ikki Tousen tells the story of fighters bearing sacred beads containing the souls of immortalized warriors from 1800 years ago.

Enter the airheaded Sonsaku Hakufu - the reincarnation of Wu's Sun Ce - who transfers west to her cousin Shuyu Koukin's (Zhou Yu) high school, Nanyo Academy.

As high schools across Kanto battle for dominance, the vicious Totaku (Dong Zhuo) steps up to rule the world from Rakuyo High School. Unknown puppeteers tug at the fighters' strings as they face the question of following or defying the fate ascribed by their beads, uniting to save Kanto from Totaku's aspirations of violent rule.
