Umeji Tatsuya moves from Tokyo, with its bustling, vibrant cityscape, to the charming, slower-paced countryside of Nonogawa, north of Okayama City. Being a former Yakuza (a mobster), Umeji knows all too well that his past can't stay buried. [quote]'Once Yakuza, always Yakuza. The tattoos mark you for life.'[/quote]
Using her influence as the town's beloved dowager, Nakamura Hisako tries to oust the young man over suspicion of his mob association. Yakuza have no place in her town. When Umeji rescues Nakamura and is willing to keep her secret at cost to himself, they get more than they bargained for.
As the mundane and Spirit Realm intermix, we'll find timelines do too. Centuries-old rivalries carry over into modern-day, and past actions can carry significance into the present.
