First Avenue, Kabuki-cho

- Are you sure, Mr Fujiwara?

- You know what the boss said.

He doesn't need a bodyguard.

At least not in the apartment.

But why not let me keep

a look-out outside his door?

While he's f***ing a girl?

That's not what I mean.

You're only a bodyguard, so just

shut the f*** up until you're needed.


Is that you, Takeshi?

You're coming home soon, aren't you?

You're not leaving too, are you?

No Takeshi, I won't leave you.

I'm at work.

- I'll call back later.

- Dad, Dad...

Tadanobu Asano

Hideo Yamamoto

Takashi Miike

Stop it. No!


Cut it out.



How does that feel?

Who's there? Who the hell...!


It's me,

- Inoue, don't!

- I thought I'd strengthen my resolve

No need.

Ichi will take care of everything.

Lately we only go in

to clean up after Ichi.

Found it.

I thought I told you to quit.

What the hell?

If I can't shoot up,

you can't use my phone.

Let's go.

He did it again. As gross as ever.

What's this guy Ichi like, anyway?

Let's get started.

What the hell happened here?

You were guarding

the boss last night.

- So was Kaneko.

- Don't try and pass the blame.

Sorry. My apologies.

Mr Kaneko,

any idea where he might be?

Has Anjo really disappeared?

How much money is missing?

About 3 million yen.

Then I guess Anjo took the money...

and ran off with the girl.

Sir, the boss

would never do such a thing. Never.

All that time he spent in jail...

must have softened his brain.

A guy grows old

gets obsessed with a broad

and can't even tell

his ass from a hole in the ground.

Probably some other gang

is behind it, sir.

There are many who bear us a grudge.

It's not Anjo who made enemies.

You did.

The boss is not dead.

Please excuse us.

- Don't you have a girlfriend?

- No. It gets lonely, you know.

- Why don't you get yourself a pet?

- I used to have an alligator

but they get hard to handle

so I flushed it down the toilet.

I see.

- What kind?

- A mongrel.

He was so cute.

But this bloke next door...

He made fun of it.

So I started praying.


- Is Karen here?

- She's there. Follow me.

- My wish was fulfilled.

- Really?

It died.

It did?

C'mon, have another.

- Masa.

- Did you hear?

The boss has disappeared.

If he ran off at all

it would've been with you.

Another gang have got him.

What are you going to do now?

He's not dead. I'll find him.

Yes, I'm sure you will.

Don't fool with me, Karen.

He's alive. I'm dead sure of it.

He's just waiting for me to find him.

Yeah, but...

You're the boss's woman.

What are you talking about?

I'm sorry.

- It's my birthday.

- Today's your birthday?

- Then this is your present.

- I thought I told you to quit.

Kakihara of the Anjo gang.

Murder, arson, smuggling and rape.

How have you been?

So you're back in Shinjuku, huh?

This is the only place...

where guys like us can make a living.

Did you hear

what happened at our place?

More or less.

When you hear anything,

I want to know. There'll be a reward.

I see.

Kill yourself.

I'm sorry.

I can't hear you.

Hurry up and die. Hurry up and die.

I'm sorry.

I have no use

for your stupid apologies.

Stop crying.

You can shed all the tears you want.

I'll only forgive you

when you're dead.

You stupid son of a b*tch.

I don't want to hear

that you haven't found him yet.

Give me that.

I want you

to turn Shinjuku inside out

until you find the boss!

Don't show your face until you do.

Chief, so far

we haven't found any clues.

That doesn't mean, of course...

that I've abandoned all hope.

I'll find him. Just leave it to me.
