From 9.00 p.m., Tuesdays, 18 July 2017
A group of four friends – Tange High School students Tobio, Maru, Isami, and 20-year-old Paisen who graduated from high school a long time ago are contented with their lives. Silly Tobio is the kind who does not dream of bigger things and just wants to live modestly. Isami who is in high spirits about his new girlfriend Niizato Koyoi, Maru and Paisen enjoy bowling and karaoke, and spend their days fairly happily. Then, Ichihashi Tetsuto who studies at Yaba High School which is known as the hotbed of delinquents, directs his gang to physically assault the students of Tange High School and these incidents recur. Even the police step in to investigate the assault cases and the situation turns dire. Tachibana Natsumi, the form teacher of Tobio, Maru and Isami, is worried. One day, Tobio and Maru come across the delinquents from Yaba High School committing violence. In a low voice, Maru curses all the school’s students to die. But this is heard by Ichihashi and provokes his anger. And so, Maru gets marked. Meanwhile, Tobio sees his childhood friend Aokawa Renko coming home in the morning together with Ichihashi and is concerned about their relationship. Then one day, an incident happens that completely changes their ordinary routine. Ichihashi’s group captures Maru and bashes him up. Tobio, Isami and Paisen lose their cool at the sight of a bloody Maru. The gang sneers at this which fills Tobio with resentment. “We’ll kill you,” he vows. The next day, Tobio and the rest plant a home-made bomb at the school next door in revenge for Maru’s vicious beating at the hands of the delinquents. However, the bomb which was only intended to shock, ends up causing a huge explosion that claims many victims including friends and seniors. Tobio, Isami and Paisen have unwittingly become suspects in a bombing incident, and they choose to get away. This triggers the start of life on the run for these youths who cannot face up to reality.
