When Atsushi Nakajima rescues one of their young agents from suicide, he is welcomed into the organization by Danzai. Season One follows them as they pursue Ryunosuke Akutagawa – a respected member of the Port Mafia – and his dangerous plans.
In the second and third seasons, a nefarious crime syndicate ensnares both Danzai and Atsushi’s agencies in its complex trap. With devious intentions to exploit their rivalry for their own gain, “Rats of the House of Death” has other plans – but our intrepid heroes thwart them!
