As Eishin Kuga—nicknamed "Mad Dog" for his unmistakable bloodlust—beats up his underlings, Yashiro watches and waits for his longtime friend to subdue him. Kanji Kageyama, an underground doctor, at last meets the young hothead whom Yashiro wants to recruit for his yakuza group. However, in light of Kuga's aversion toward Yashiro, Kageyama is ultimately left with the chore of temporarily housing him. But as Kageyama continues to insist that he has no interest in men, Kuga's shirtless presence, riotous attitude, and ceaseless teasing might just change his mind.

The first thing that comes to my mind while finishing this ova is HOT! HOT! HOOOT! HOTTTT!! this Ova was so spicy and full of passion, kinks, and fatal attraction it gave a great foundation to a stable couple we saw in the movie and it was amazing, not graphic borderline hentai or bl almost hitting shounen-ai, it was just the right amount of eroticism and passion.
The charter only was rush on the development but it was bound to happen in a 24 min ova but these little glimpses were enough to give me hope to see more of them on the next movie 10/10 ...
