Darkside Blues

Synopsis: The Persona Century Corporation has purchased nearly every parcel of land on earth. Dissension is not tolerated within the corporation's borders and those who oppose Persona are dealt with swiftly. Of those few places not yet under Persona's control is the free town of Kabuki-cho, also known as "The Dark Side of Tokyo". Within the town, under the leadership of a woman named Mai, is a small resistance group called Messiah. Into this world steps a man who takes the sobriquet of Kabuki-cho: Darkside. Sealed up in another dimension eighteen years ago by Persona Century, Darkside now returns to aid Messiah using his unique mystic power of renewal.

Kill me!

Kill me quickly!

If you tell me where the survivors

fled to, I'll think about it.

Not a chance!

I'm so pleased you said that.

Ten brave terrorists destroyed

the central control room...

...at Persona Century


While it was a dummy control room,

it was still quite an achievement.

A dummy?

You underestimated Persona

Century's information network.

Even if you kill me,

more of my friends will come!

You may have bought the world,

but your time is coming to an end!

That would be fascinating.

Just once, I'd like to see

surprise on the face...

...of Lando Hozuki my father.

But I wonder when that event will happen?

And now you must pay us

back for your courage.

There's a chance we'll see waves

coming from the fourth dimension?

Yes, it's just an estimate, but...


In 20 minutes. It will only last

for 10 to the negative 20 seconds.

In real terms, it's damn close

to zero, but we can't ignore it.

Tell Mr. Guren.

It must be painful... To turn

to gold while you're still alive.

You're doing terrible

things as usual, Tamaki.

What's your business here, Guren?

Shouldn't the oh-so-proper heir to

Persona Century still be in bed?

When I'm plunged into darkness,

I don't need as much sleep.

So you came to watch your sister play...

...and have your first

drink of the day.

Don't interfere.

I'm only concerned with how

the business is running.

I came down here to see

the sight with my own eyes.

What happened here?

It'll happen in 120 seconds.

The transmutation machine has stopped.

Where did Katari go?!

These are the haunts

of that huge lunatic sow.

I've been looking for you, pretty boy.

Come here, boy.

We'll teach you real nice.

Although, with your brain, you'll

never understand what's going on.


What's this?

There was never any hole here before!

It's been eighteen years since that time.


What is this sound?

What's that sound?

It sounds like a horse-drawn carriage.

From underground?

Don't be stupid!

What is that?


The hole disappeared.

Just who are you?

Thank you.

He's from around here.

Uh... What's your name?

What is the name of this place?

It's Kabuki-cho in Shinjuku.

The Dark Side of Tokyo.

Then that will be my name.


Is there a good place to stay around here?

If you go south for two blocks,

there are several.

They're pretty cheap

if you plan to live here.

Thank you.

As long as the world is

under the influence of...

...a correct social order,

it will never fall to devastation.

However, when the social order

requires a lack of logic...

...and mindless

minions to survive...

...the devastation appears

as a world of its own.

This is boring! Can't we

liven things up a little, Mai?

If that's the case, how about

some music, Messiah people?

Quit it.

We don't have the time to

listen to drunken wailing.

Give me one, Mr. Delirium.

Thank you. The Messiah

Leader understands the world.

Okay, what do you want?

How about something dark?

No, something desolate.

Dark and cold.

Something to freeze your soul.

Fine, I've got just the thing.

It's Persona.

What's that? People from the

Japanese branch headquarters?

Never seen that before.

He looks like some VIP from the main office.

I am here to deliver a message from

the main office of Persona Century.

A few days ago, several terrorists

broke into the main office...

...trying to kill the president.

Every terrorist was killed,

with one exception.

It seems a lone survivor

returned to the surface...

...and is hiding somewhere

in this district.

Therefore, we ask for your help,
