It’s the year 2020 AD, and Tokyo II is a city infested with crime. Women can no longer go out in the streets alone without being victimized. Not wanting their daughter to suffer the same fate, Tsukasa Kozuki’s cop parents raise her as a boy. When they are suddenly killed by one of the yakuza’s in-fights, Tsukasa is left orphaned on the streets along with her three brothers.

As they set out to find their enemy, Ryuji slaps an increasing amount of debt onto Tsukasa, using all manner of ploys to keep the reluctant Tsukasa by his side (source: Baka-Updates Manga).
