At first glance Ryuzaki Ikuo, a detective in the Shinjuku Police Department's 2nd detective unit, & Danno Tatsuya, a high ranking member of the Matsuo Yakuza clan have nothing in common. However they both are working themselves up the ladder in their respective careers for one reason which deals with a murder case that happened 15 years earlier of which both men were witnesses to.

I went into this series having no idea what I was getting into... let me tell you what a surprise I got.

The bulk of the story is about 2 people, Ikuo Ryuzaki and Danno Tatsuya which 15 years ago they saw their precious teacher killed, but to add to that a certain detective with a golden watch (you just hope it's a got to be a Rolex) covered the whole thing up.

So what do you normally do in a situation like this, that's right Ikuo joins the police force to become a detective while Danno joins the Yakuza. Sounds similar to "The Departed" which read more

Similar premise. Both have childhood friends who went to different fields in order to change society. One became a yakuza while the other worked for the government/authorities. The two friends are still in communication but they hide their relationship from public to avoid suspicion.
-Antihero protagonist
-Protagonist who working as police officer
-Protagonist who looks weak but strong behind the scenes
-Dark plot themed
-In Dendrobates, Sengawa's working alone while in Ouroboros, had two people that helping each other, Ryuzaki as a police detective and Tatsuya as a leader of Yakuza.
