Storyline

Kobayashi Hironoshin is a samurai in the fiefdom of Nagaoka. Unfortunately for him and the area's fleas he displeases the local lord who orders him to immediately become busy ridding the local feline of any and all fleas. That is the bad news. The good news is it is all euphemism for some other occupation. That is good news, right? Written by aghaemi
