In 1977, Ichiban Kasuga was orphaned at birth. He was raised by prostitutes on the streets of Kamurocho, Tokyo's red-light district.

As a result, he grew up poor and angry. After he got in a fight with a group of yakuza, he hastily told them that he was part of the Arakawa yakuza family to scare them away.

Instead, he was brought to Masumi Arakawa, the head of the yakuza family of which he pretended to be a part.

Instead of killing or hurting him, Ichiban was let go, and he begged to be part of the Arakawa family.

In 2001, he was told to take the blame for a murder he didn't commit. Ichiban agreed, glad to be of service to the man who saved his life.

When he was released from prison in 2019, he expected to be greeted by the yakuza. Instead, he was penniless and alone once again.
