In the Warring States Period of ancient China (475-221 BCE), Shin and Hyou are war-orphans in the kingdom of Qin. They dream of one day proving themselves on the battlefield. One day, however, Hyou is taken to the palace by a minister. Winding up on the losing side of a power-struggle, Piao manages to return to the village, barely alive. Sin then meets a boy who closely resembles Hyou, Ei Sei. For now he is the king of Qin; later he will become the emperor Qin Shi Huang.

Added DiffLines:

* BroadStrokes: While the general arc of the manga remains faithful to the Shiji, the mangaka alters the details of it here and there so as to make the story more presentable to the readers. For example:
** According to the Shiji, Sei's half-brother was killed when he unsuccessfully rebelled against the Qin. In the manga, he is framed by Ryofui, though Sei is not in the position to prove it yet.
** The Shiji portrays Rou Ai as a conniving, stone-cold power-hungry fake eunuch who ruthlessly conspired against Sei. In the manga, he is still a fake eunuch, but he is actually a very gentle man who ends up the way he is portrayed in history because of forces outside his control.
** Most important, Sei does not kill his mother's children with Rou Ai.


Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: Sei does not kill his mother's children with Rou Ai--a major divergence with the real history.
