During an informal ceremony inducting her into the legendary ranks, Lili is mysteriously transported 300 years back in time to a small village in 18th Century Japan, where she finds herself completely naked and alone. Fortunately (for her, but not necessarily the viewers!), her dilemma doesnΓÇÖt last too long and in no time at all she is fulfilling her destiny as a warrior by rescuing a young pregnant girl, Miss Yae, who is being harassed by three ninja members of the Yamishika gang. It transpires that the gang is working for the evil Lady Okinu, who is running a protection racket throughout the local villages. After being introduced to, and falling for, Miss YaeΓÇÖs brother, Hikoichi, Lili agrees to help the villagers by taking on Lady Okinu and her henchmen in a bid to free them from the tyranny under which they are being forced to live. Believing her samurai swordfighting skills ΓÇô not to mention her magical, power-enhanced breasts ΓÇô to be unmatched and unbeatable, Lili is confident she can overcome the despot. But Lady Okinu is not all she seems, as Lili soon finds out.
