Blue Orchid

"Blue Orchid" (Seijou no Ran) takes place before the enthronement of Shouryuu as Emperor of En (which chronologically makes it the earliest in the series). As documented at the beginning of Poseidon of the East, the previous emperor had strayed far from the Way and then the Taiho died without choosing a new emperor, "a great catastrophe that had only occurred eight times since the dawn of history."

And so the story will open upon an apocalyptic landscape.
