They're on a mission for the British government- to locate the Kusanagi sword, an ancient relic believed to have magical powers. If they can find the sword, the Emperor of Japan promises to keep the peace between his nation and the allies. But in Tokyo, they soon discover that the Nazis are after the sword, too. And they will stop at nothing for world domination - putting the team's lives in terrible danger.
