"Utsuho's truthfulness as a child resulted in an enormous catastrophe, and he decided to lie from that day forward. Raised in a village of orphans by a monk, Utsuho is an unrepentant troublemaker. The monk eventually inspires him to help people, but there's no way Utsuho's going to lead an honest life! Instead, he's going to use his talents for mischief and deception for good! Utsuho continues to face off against another and far deadlier itsuwaribito, Gin Hobaku--a so-called hero who is destroying the Land of Owari! Though Utsuho and his friends have managed to hold their own against Gin so far, they must now face a cadre of skilled underlings specially picked and prepared by Gin, as well as 200 elite castle troops who will obey Gin without question. If Utsuho can buck these odds, it'll be a miracle!"-- Provided by publisher.
