Allegedly dictated by the warrior-god Hachiman to a martial monk, the 'Dark Scrolls' are rumored to make anyone who has them in their possession truly invincible...
Lost for centuries, the Dark Scrolls are now being held in the castle of an arrogant daimyo named Kimura. Ennin is asked to retrieve these scrolls by another daimyo, Yoichi, so that they may be destroyed - the threat they pose to the security of Japan simply being too great...

But does Yoichi really have the best interests of his country at heart? And how, exactly, can Ennin obtain the Dark Scrolls from Kimura in the first place... ?

This is the 11th Ennin Mystery
