Rin and Da slink deeper into the 'Badger Hole,' hoping to find their missing friends at the end of one of the dark tunnels that wind below Edo Castle. Going in through the 'back door' won't be easy, as these tunnels are filled with Kagimura's foot soldiers and other dangers. When a surprise turn of events finds the ladies in an awkward, defenseless position, how will the arrival of a new Itto-ry warrior sit with Rin? Meanwhile, Hyakurin reflects on a recent heart-to-heart she had with Rin and how her current role in the 'Badger Hole Rescue Mission' has placed her shoulder to shoulder with the angry women of Edo-a growing number of citizens fearing for the lives of the many men who have been disappearing into Edo's prison system. 2005, 2006, AND 2007 Eagle Award winner for 'Favourite Manga Title' Features a full-color pinup by rising star Joshua Boulet!
