Bakumatsu Roman Gekka no Kenshi Gaiden ~Akari to Nantsu no Ayakashidama~ (幕末浪漫 月華の剣士外伝～あかりと七つの妖珠～), abbreviated as Gekka no Kenshi S, is a pachislot machine centered on Akari Ichijou from The Last Blade series. It is scheduled to hit pachinko parlors sometime this year. The official website can be seen here.
Four years after the climax of the second title, Akari's father, Genbo, noticed that the seal over the Hell's Gate had strangely been weakening. Since Akari ran away from home once more, he went with his friendly mononoke friend, Kotetsu, to investigate. When Akari returned sometime later, she learned that her father mysteriously disappeared and that seven demons have ayakashidama from her father. Linking the seven ayakashidama to Genbo's whereabouts, she heads out to collect all seven.
