Although the city of Fukuoka might look relatively peaceful at first glance, in actuality it houses a thriving mixture of dangerous individuals such as killers, detectives, and professional revenge seekers right beneath its surface. Among their number is Zenji Banba, a laidback and observant detective who is investigating the work of other hitmen companies in the area. However, Banba might not be the only one with a bone to pick with these organizations, as Xianming Ling, a crossdressing male hitman in the employ of one such company begins getting fed up with his lack of jobs and pay.

One day, after Ling's current target commits suicide before the hitman could reach him, his company refuses to pay him even half the amount they were originally supposed to for the assassination. Frustrated, Ling requests another mission and is offered the job of taking out Banba, whom his organization believes has been interfering with their business. However, when Banba arrives at his home and finds the hitman inside, Ling surprisingly doesn't even attempt to kill him. Instead, he offers the detective another option: to join him and form a team. With the offer on the table, exactly how will Banba respond, and just what plans does Ling have in store for the underground world of Fukuoka?

I created an account just to give this title justice. This title has an excellent start and I really enjoy the story, but I will not recommend this for younger viewers because of thematic issues, such as normalizing and somewhat glamorizing crime and murder, human trafficking, sex, rape, torture and explores what it means to live in a world governed by political power, money and with no moral ethics. This show has sinister undertones of a world that is hidden underneath the bright and bustling world of Fukuoka, and yet does not lose the lightness and get indulgent in the violence.

After seeing first episode, I had this sudden urge to warn everyone to not watch this. There are few reasons.

"A company of killers for hire"
First of all - this anime makes no sense whatsoever. The city of Hakata, where the action takes place, could not possibly exist in a way it does. It is said to us that 3% of the population are "professional killers, detectives, informants, and professional revenge seekers". How do they know that ? Never explained. Let's be generous and say that 2% are the killers (including revenge seekers because I do not see the diffrence) and 1% is the rest. You read more

Anything with killers, professional killers or agency/company of killers it's absolutely fucking retarded triple so in anime where all the characters look younger than 25

Those were some wasted 24 minutes I am never getting back

And if you thought DRRR was retarded YOU. HAVE. SEEN. NOTHING. YET.
