takes place in the mid-Heian period (roughly 1000ad). Kyoto is ravaged
by starvation and epidemic, nevertheless the lords and samurai's
continue their ugly struggles for political supremacy.
Tsuna's trademark quote: I am Minamoto no Raikou’s adjutant Watanabe no Tsuna. Those of you who fear my Onikirimaru, begone! If you do not leave, you shall become roadside dust and chaff. Know your frailty, and regret it in your demise! (Real his quote: "I am Watanaba no Tsuna, Minamoto no Raikou's most loyal retainer. Take flight if you fear my sword, onikirimaru! Otherwise, You shall be reduced to mere dust on the road. ..and forever lament your own impotence in the hereafter!")
Tsuna appears by Raikou's side within the beginning of the anime, and continues to be by her side. Tsuna vows his life to protect Raikou no matter what circumstances, even when he is blinded in his right eye. Tsuna generally wields his long sword when in battle, especially when protecting Raikou. It is later revealed within the anime that Tsuna had been going blind in his left eye as well, in which he occasionally has blurred vision, resulting in him randomly seeing objects come closer or farther away. This effects happens only at certain times however.
Other than when protecting Raikou, it seems that Tsuna and Urabe seem to share a more personal relationship together, in which they are commonly seen together at times. This fact had also been partially strengthened when Tsuna and Urabe are washed up together after failing to find everyone else after a sudden tsunami attack. This was also the first time in which it is revealed that Tsuna had experienced distorted sight. Following this event, Tsuna effectively fights by his lord's side throughout her endeavours, such as in the attainment of the Magatama of Fire. Tsuna primarily reflects his great skills during the destruction of the Capital Arc, where he personally dueled with great resolve against the demented tyrant Shutendouji. After Shutendouji is defeated, Tsuna assists Hikaru against Seimei after learning of his intentions. Such information had been attained by Urabe, who had died in his own hands.
Throughout Hikaru and the others attempt to stop Seimei, Kintarou and Usui Sadamitsu stay back to hold off the delusioned Capital soldiers. Tsuna, who is strucken by his temporarily occurring blindness is stabbed in the hand by a random official from the Capital. Hikaru then realizes that Tsuna is suffering through full blindness. When Tsuna and Hikaru had been very close to Seimei - even to the extent of being able to shoot him with an arrow, Tsuna and Hikaru are attacked by two very powerful warriors of the Capital. Tsuna fights with great valor, but ends up being fatally striked atop his left shoulder right before finishing the enemy off with a final blow. This leads to him quickly stabbing to death the warrior from the Capital. Tsuna then stands with his sword stuck within the ground, and utters these words to Hikaru who is tear stricken before him, "Your brother. ..Urabe. ..and everyone's wishes. ..please". Tsuna then sadly dies while standing, in which he entrusts everything to his lord, Hikaru.
