Ash survives and makes it to Japan to live the future he and Eiji longed for since they were in New York.
Ash finds out about Eiji's past, and Eiji tries to make his return to pole vaulting.
Their life together is merely beginning.
Heir to the merciless throne of head of the Okumura clan, Eiji must take up the mantle following his father's death; taking his place as leader of the yakuza. Abandoning his home in Japan, his first task as leader is to put an end to the American mafia who was responsible for stealing merchandise. Though, of course, Eiji knows he has to tackle the mafia's core to break the chain.
He's given one name.
Falling in love with the person you're supposed to kill is complicated, isn't it?
