The executioner Sagiri Asaemon informs him that he is still alive and gives him an order to obtain his acquittal: He should find the elixir of immortality.

Kaku started drawing the historical fantasy manga in Shounen Jump + in January 2018 and concluded it with 128 chapters on January 25 of this year. Shueisha released Volume 12 on December 4th.
