Blade & Soul is an anime, or Japanese animation series, that focuses on the main character, a young woman named Aruka. Aruka is a fierce assassin who works for the group called the Clan of the Sword. She has learned to subdue her emotions and do whatever it takes to complete any job she is assigned. However, her life takes a sharp turn when her master, Hon, is killed by another assassin. This new assassin is a woman named Jin. Like Aruka, Jin is a ruthless, sometimes seemingly heartless, assassin with demonic-like strength and talent.

Aruka is determined to kill Jin in order to avenge her master. However, after setting out on her quest, Aruka meets an array of new people, including several other female assassins. As she meets these people and learns about their lives and problems, Aruka realizes that she is having her own mental struggles. Her master Hon asked that she leave the life of an assassin behind and live differently. As much as she wants to get revenge for her master, Aruka also wants to fulfill Hon
