    • Synopsis
    • Goro Tsurumaki (Yoshiyuki Yamaguchi) is a member of the Sakigake Group of Kaijinkai. Known as “Goromaki Goro” in the town he had drifted to, Goro carries a bitter past of not being able to save someone dear to him two years ago. His subordinate, Kenta (Daiki Sano) worships Goro as a big brother figure and for his tough attitude of having nothing to protect or lose. One day, Kenta’s younger brother Koji (Seiji Sagara) is killed by members of Sakigake’s sister group, the Michiyama Group. Goro tries desperately to stop Kenta by telling him, as though he is trying to convince himself, that “The dead don’t come back. Right and wrong is decided by those with power.” But the vengeful Kenta rides into the Michiyama Group alone only to get nearly beaten to death. “What must I protect?” Goro’s soul is tortured, but he finally takes his sword and prepares to leave his group.
