After the war, which lasted 70 years motivated through greed, the Song Dynasty took control and managed to unite China as one. Having made alliances with the Northern countries, there were no enemies left that could invade. With such peace in hand, the country has made much progress, but that time has worn out. With no enemies left to fulfill such greed, it was inevitable that it would befall upon the common people.

However, a revolution has begun and the world will once again see change. 108 heroes gather under the Taiten-Gyoudou flag. A group of chivalrous thieves who travel the path to change the heavens. A new take on the Suikoden epic has begun.

There are times when things need change, but there are few people who have courage to make the change.
Akaboshi - Ibun Suikoden is a story set in ancient China, when the country is united the government gets corrupt and the conditions of live of the population are terrible.

The characters are charming and have much room for development, the main character is, dumb, strong and with a thing he must do, not to diferent of many shounen protagonists. And Suiren is the adorable useless observer read more
