Orient centers on Musashi, a 15-year-old boy who wanted to become a samurai. The story takes place during the Sengoku period when Japan was ruled by demons. Samurai were categorized as taboo so Musashi had to blend into society as a miner. Eventually, he and his friend decided to go on a journey to defeat these demons and restore peace in society.
