The young son of a Japanese emperor learns that his father had in the past destroyed an evil shape-shifting wizard known as Aku. when Aku returns, the child is sent across the world to train to fight this monster, armed with an indestructible, magical sword. But at the last minute the dark wizard opens a time portal and forces him into the distant future, where Aku governs with a totalitarian rule. The saumrai is dubbed “Jack” by outsiders, and this name spreads in the media as the young samurai wreaks havoc as he is forced to roam the less inhabited, but much more dangerous wastes of this future earth.
He overcomes a series of bounty hunters, before befriending a scotsman and fellow rebel against Aku, who helps him in facing a massive army of beetle-shaped robot drones in an attempt to reach a portal to the past.
