Story
Shun’s younger brother Rin works at a fighting ring for gambling in the basement of a multi-tenant building. He is a beloved family member whom she should protect. However, Tsukamoto, who organises the competitions, is not pleased with the attempts of Shun and the others to transform it into a mainstream event. Meanwhile, Takeru, a scout, walks around town each day calling to females to let him cast them as actresses in a dubious film. He seems a frivolous person on the surface, but at night, his life is about finding pushers (drug smugglers) and destroying them. There are also men who watch Takeru from the shadows … … Shun and Takeru meet for the first time at ‘Green’, which is Takeru’s favourite bar. The pushers, who loathe being knocked about by Takeru, barge in and start fighting. Shun also joins in this war.
