A mysterious princess is introduced, speaking of a "storm" arising. Meanwhile, the Shinsengumi have marched to the front lines, and leaped into the battle of their own accord. Cleaning up after an enemy sortie, Saito finds one of the mystery men from Ikedaya (Amagiri Kyuuju) defending Satsuma Clan soldiers; Harada encounters a third powerful stranger (Shiranui Kyou) wielding a Western-style handgun; and Hijikata and Chizuru are confronted by the blonde stranger (Chikage Kazama) as they race to Mt. Tennozan.
