Kōtetsu Sangokushi (鋼鉄三国志 ?) is one of the Japanese anime loosely-based adaptations of the Chinese Romance of the Three Kingdoms.



Rikuson Hakugen (Lu Xun) is the inheritor of the right arm, a magical arm that had great power. During a raid by the Gi (Wei) faction in a Go (Wu) faction town, Zaoli, the soldiers were about to kill a small family of a mother and son when Rikuson arrived in his mount. Rikuson successfully repelled the raiders but he was unable to prevent one of the soldiers from slaying the mother. As he went close to the boy, the boy moved away from him, as he finally realized the severity and harshness of war. Rikuson was the disciple of Shoukatsuryou Koumei (Zhuge Liang) as they observed a war between Sonsaku Hakufu (Sun Ce), the ruler of the Go faction and a Gi squadron thrice the size of his forces. It seemed that Sonsaku was in a disadvantage, but Rikuson could feel a mysterious force in the faction. It was Sonsaku with the power of the Hereditary Seal, the ability to wield great power as he exterminated the enemy force easily. A flashback showed that Sonsaku had killed Rikuson’s father to retrieve the Hereditary Seal and the seal had chosen Sonsaku to be the owner of it and the brilliant power stored within it. At the aftermath, Sousou (Cao Cao), the leader of the Gi faction realized that Sonsaku had such a power. Koumei also saw the red star moving toward the center, as fate started to move
