“Joran: THE PRINCESS OF SNOW AND BLOOD” is set in an alternate late 1800s Japan, where the country has developed its own energy source: the “dragon vein”. However, behind the rapid development of the city of Edo, a dissident organization Kuchinawa is trying to overthrow the administration.
Fighting against them is the secret organization Nue, under the auspices of the Tokugawa government, which was entrusted with exterminating the Kuchinawa. In the middle of it all is Sakiha Yukimura — whose family was killed when she was young, and is in search for Janome, who became an executioner of Nue.
