May 1995,

the night of the raid.

What happened?!

May 1995, the night of the raid.

May 1995,

the night of the raid

My father was a lieutenant...

May 1995

The night of the raid

for the Ogoshi-gumi,

a Goseikai sub-gang.

We got word that all five members,

Junior's Dad and mine too,

had been killed.

Junior and me

rushed to hospital with Seiji,

who'd seen it go down.

Let us through!

When I saw my father's body

lying in the rain,

it felt strange, like I was

seeing my own future.

Daisuke! Take a good look.

- Dad!

- Daisuke!

- That's Hisamatsu.

- Junior was 15.

I was 13.

Mom wailed like a madwoman.

His name's Shigeru!

The Ogoshi-gumi's lieutenant...

Or bodyguard?

Our lives were transformed overnight.

As did Junior and me,

that night...

'Birds Disco'

At the time of the raid

People derided our "yakuza DNA"

behind our backs.

We derided dance music.

We smuggled in a boombox,

and danced to hip-hop by ourselves.

You're Ogoshi-gumi,

so we'll allow it, but...

Eurobeat is played out, dude!

Don't you know hip-hop, huh?!

- You little f*ck!

- Don't touch him!

Birds Disco was taken from Bandai...

by my dad's gang,

but the Goseikai boss's son...

took it over,

as a show of power.

Knock it off!

Seiji's here.

Still playing that old shit?

No wonder it's failing.

Got any trance?

Trance! Trance!

Sir! You're the owner now?


Mr. Matsuura, I'm Ogoshi.

He's Hisamatsu's son...

Oh. I just drank with your old man.

"That fishface Bandai!", he said.

What a chump.

Ha ha! It's in our DNA.

She's cute.

He's a fan of hers.

Aren't you?

- Answer your phone!

- Say what?!

- You like trance?

- I like rock.

Hey, how's it hanging?

What? I'm with Seiji.


What is it?

All of them? No way.


To the hospital.

Get the car!

Hayato! Let's go!

The boombox!


Mikihiko Bandai...

He destroyed everything.

10 years ago,

Japan's bubble economy thrived.

Bandai, an ex-rock musician,

borrowed money...

from Dad's Okoshi Promotions.

He opened his own disco,

and became a celebrity.

I'm very sorry,

we're closing...


However, the bubble soon burst,

and Bandai was hounded daily

to pay his debts.

Okoshi Promotions was...

a front for the Goseikai syndicate.

Bandai knew that on weekends,

money from gambling, drugs,

and prostitution flooded their office.

I can't do it alone.

With you, Junichi, I can.
