The story takes place 2300 years ago in China. The town of Ryo has requested the help of a clan called Bokk to aide them as their town is facing attack. The Bokk clan's representative, Kakuri, responds to their call for help and attempts to save Ryo from an almost inevitable defeat, from not only outer forces, but also from those who doubt him within.

Bokkou won the Shogakukan Manga Award in 1995.

The series was published in Spanish by Ponent Mon from November 2007 to October 2008.

Had the series stayed and solely focused on the siege, then I personally feel it would have been much more enjoyable. But instead it goes off on some adventure that made little sense to me and just felt like a cop out at the fact the author lost interest in his original vision for the series.

The only reason I read this series to completion is ...
