Onotora Shu’s parents passed away when he was five years old and he was raised by their friend Onotora Joichiro. He currently works at the cleaning company that his foster father runs. Joichiro and a detective acquaintance, Wataya Shiori, watch over Shu. One day, Joichiro tells Shu that he is retiring and intends to hand over the company to him despite privately worrying about Shu who keeps failing at critical moments. Shu is surprised by his sudden decision. That night, Shu receives a call from Shiori who informs him that Joichiro was shot dead by someone at a wharf. However, Joichiro’s death is reported in the news as an accident from falling into the sea. This enrages an increasingly confused Shu. Shiori tells him that she was instructed to treat it as an accidental death. He finally learns about the Secret Operation Service, known as SOS, a top-secret organisation in the police that kills terrorists and bad guys who cannot be tried by the law. Shiori is in charge of SOS and his foster father was a legendary professional killer who had been sent on countless difficult missions without anyone knowing. Shu decides to become a hitman in order to avenge his foster father. He is well prepared when he approaches the mysterious and immensely popular manga writer Narumiya Mitsuki who is his assassination target. Mitsuki was caught on security cameras near the scene shooting Joichiro. Despite his physical abilities as a hitman, Shu is unable to kill Mitsuki because of his terrible timing, no matter how he tries. On the contrary, he ends up protecting her as danger approaches. Mitsuki is gradually attracted to Shu because of his protection. The two of them who should not fall in love, have an unlikely romance.
