Plot[edit | edit source]
In a dystopian future where Kansai became a vassal state of Kantō, multiple highly skilled criminals called Akudama, are sent a message from an anonymous client to free a death row prisoner named Cutthroat before his execution. Four Akudama respond to the challenge and descend into Kansai Police Headquarters to earn a big payday. However, once inside, they discover the job was part of their client's larger scheme to make them work together on a bigger job: to infiltrate the Shinkansen and steal precious cargo from a train vault. Roped into the job are an ordinary girl arrested on a minor charge but forced to keep up a swindler appearance, and a low-level Hoodlum who was accidentally broken out of jail during the initial heist. The team must work together to finish the job and earn their large pay, all while keeping ahead of the Executioners from the Kansai Police on their tail.
