    • Synopsis
    • Nakatsu (Higashide) is a part-timer working at a convenience store, who was fired from his previous full-time job as an office worker and has no hope of getting ahead. One day, he happens to meet Toshida (Kubota), an unemployed young man with bafflingly amazing physical abilities, Kaori (Komatsu), a high school student with an exceptional knack for gathering information, and Kusaka (Kataoka), who is an office worker on the brink of retirement by day and the "Youth Buster" by night. Together they form a vigilante group to protect the city and begin punishing petty criminals that society overlooks by hanging them up from high places to set an example. Their actions eventually gain public support and the vigilante group grows into a major organization.

      Kusaka recruits Uno, a former homeless man, to serve as president and Tomoshibi Security Firm begins operation as a company that provides security services at a low price. However, some of the new recruits begin to use their position for personal gain and the order within the company gradually begins to fall apart. What will happen to Tomoshibi Security Firm and the original members of the vigilante group? The situation heads to a totally unexpected conclusion.
