    • Synopsis
    • Shintaro Sakurai and Koichi Hikage of the Community Safety Section of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police, West Ikebukuro Division, are a pair of bent cops who will do anything they can think of: stealing from wildcat underworld organizations unaffiliated with the traditional yakuza mobsters, or embezzling money uncovered in the course of their investigations. Now money seized by the police has gone missing, and their station chief has ordered them to produce ¥2.5 million by tomorrow morning.
      Desperate, they see an article about a giant fraud scheme involving a ¥6 billion pension fund. The main suspect in the case is one Nobuo Tsukumo, who has embezzled most of the money, with the help of Kyoko Tachibana, the owner of a high-class hostess club. There is ¥2.5 billion left.
      The two police officers try to sell Tsukumo and Kyoko to the yakuza, and get their hands on some of the money. Their contact here is one Ryuichi Tagami, whose Tagami Syndicate is in the process of violating a long-established underworld custom, dealing high quantities of drugs through the Chinese mafia. The deal will require ¥2.5 billion, and the Syndicate does not have the money.
      The Chinese mafia connection, Johnny Wong, has the drugs ready, but he does not trust the Nipponese. He wants the ¥2.5 billion in cold hard cash.
      An investigator with a grudge against Johnny Wong has infiltrated the Tagami Syndicate. A number of this man’s colleagues have been killed, and he will not be content with a simple arrest. He wants the deal to go through, to provide him with an excuse to take revenge. The ¥2.5 billion will be the excuse.
      Sanada, who belongs to the Musashino League, an armed wildcat group, finds out about Tsukumo through Saori, a hostess who works for Kyoko. To destroy both the two police officers, at whose hands he has been humiliated, and the Tagami Syndicate, he sets up a scheme to steal the ¥2.5 billion.
      A business enterprise that will be threatened if Tsukumo is arrested sends out a hitman to kill him. Upper echelons of the police department, themselves deeply involved with the Tagami Syndicate, begin to leak information on Sakurai and Hikage.
