Seishin is planned to be a collection of mostly short stories. They cover fictional and non-fictional events and characters within pre-modern Japan. Primarily, the point of the ninja. Many stories will have four or five chapters at most; the single chapters are called "One-shots" and are usually something like poetry or something to promote the series. The stories are split into Japanese era names (年号, nengō) which denote different events.

Because of the length of the Muromachi Peroid (室町時代; 1336–1573), it's split into three peroids: Kenmu Restoration (南北朝時代; 1333–1336), North and South Courts (南北朝時代; 1336–1392), and Warring States Period (戦国時代; 1493 - 1590).

Some of the stories contain a "Character Scroll", a foreword before the chapter. It is mostly written by another character such as members of the Fujibayashi Family or daimyo. It serves like a record.
