Genryusai (源柳斎 Genryūsai?) is a Japanese family from the Final Fight series. The founding clan of Bushinryu, the Genryusai family played in important role in the lives of Guy and his future sister-in-law Maki Genryusai.
History[edit | edit source]
The Genryusai clan is the original clan that founded the Bushinryu in the 15th Century. As the Soke (宗家 main family) of the Bushin Ninja Clan, the Genryusai family has organized many of their clan's activities. This would continue up until the Meiji Restoration, where many shinobi clans struggled and even disbanded. The Bushinryu's arts became obsolete and less effective as the tradition had stagnated. It would be until the Genryusai's patriarch, and 37th generation Master would come to train Zeku, his best student and 38th Bushinryu Master, that the direction of Bushinryu would change.
After the passing of the elder Genryusai, Maki, the second daughter of the late Bushinryu Master has been seeking Guy, determined to prove his superior and become the 40th Master of the Bushinryu clan.
