After leaving the army, his friends take him to a carnival, where he meets the perfect girl; Annie, a sharp-shooting sideshow performer who loves guns as much as he. The 2 run off and marry, but Annie isn't happy with their financial situation, so at her behest the couple begins a cross-country string of daring robberies.

Metropolitan Police


A friend of mine has the part, but it will

take at least a week to get here.

This place is in the middle of

nowhere, you know.

I see.

You came all the way from Tokyo, didn't you?

A soldier shot someone a little while ago.

I see.

I see?

Someone was shot!

It's not a rare thing around here.

Half of this town is that base, and there's

no fence like in other towns.

Nobody knows where the borders are,

so no matter what happens, it can

be treated as a military matter.

You mean nothing can be done,

even if someone was shot?

This place is Japan, but not in Japan.

This town might not be on

the map next year.

However, if you're seeking a lonely

journey away from the city,

this place is perfect.

There are some sightseeing spots.

Currently, Crystal Lagoon is the

hottest spot for diving.

Well, you ought to forget what you saw.

They won't just shoot anybody at

random, so take it easy.

There's only one reason to be shot.

He disobeyed Tojo.

Room number four, upstairs.


Thank you.

How about that? Isn't it impressive?

How many years has it been since

you've seen a female guest?

Why don't you show a little gratitude?

I kindly brought you a guest!

The guests you've brought have

never kept their promises.

The last man was supposed to stay a week,

but he died on the second day.

The one before, he died the day he arrived.

Excuse me, but she's a woman and

she came to sightsee.

Don't mix her up with all those guys.

It's me.

He told me you need to sign

the guest register.

It's not necessary to be accurate.

Then please fill it out for me.

What's your name?

Saki, you can put any last name.

Well then, Saki Yamada, Miss.

My name is Akira.

Let me work for you as a sightseeing guide.

I can take you anywhere depending

on how much you pay me.

Hey, aren't there any police in this town?

Yes, just one, but he can't be

called a policeman.

He just drinks all day around here.

Hey, I told you to forget about it.

If you try to do anything about it,

you'll definitely be killed.

By the man called Tojo?


Even the police can't do

anything about Tojo.

I don't know how many men have died

trying to kill Tojo for a bounty.

No, nothing.

Mr. Shuhei Takahira, aren't you?

He can't talk right without alcohol.

Give him a shot.

Little girl, what do you want?

I can't believe you're a policeman

and you're like this.

Shut up!


There is nothing to be controlled.

In a peaceful town like this,

the police have gone out of business.

I know you haven't finished your work yet.

Who the hell are you?

Who sent you here?

If you want a woman, go somewhere else.

ldiot, stop! Those guys are

working with Tojo.

Don't kill me. Stop!

I see, then it's easy.

You may arrest me.

Tip for you.

Bounty hunter, again.

A female bounty hunter?

You were so embarrassed by her,

weren't you?

F*cking American...

Find a better bodyguard.

What shall we do about the bitch?

I'll have fun with her later.

The cash transport truck will depart

at 9 AM from Hokura Base,

and take Route 4 to the south,

to the port of Naza.

How much in the truck?

About two million dollars.

All of it is laundered dirty money,

so even if we steal it, the military

won't be able to make it public.

You know so much about it, don't you?

Sam works for the intelligence

agency in the army.

He's responsible for watching

illegal activities.

I see. Bad looking after bad, right?

Mr. Tojo, you have to listen to me first.

This plan started with just me and Sam,

therefore, we share the money fifty-fifty.
