Year 2039. In the world that walked the path of ruin, there was only one country that continued to prosper: Japan.

Chapter 1 Carnival

D-Dear... Look, Yan is really sick.
He can't hold any longer.

We're almost there. Don't give up, Yan...


It's Japan!
We're in Japan!
Yeah! We've finally made it to Japan!

Japan, huh?

D-Dad, will I be cured here?
Of course. There's work for us here, and the doctors here can cure you, too.
W-We can call Japan our utopia, right?

Look! It's a rescue helicopter!
Hey! We're over here! Help!

Jump into the water!

HQ, over.
I've spotted a ship carrying illegal immigrants on Tokyo Bay.
I took care of it, over.

T-Thanks for saving us.

Found them!
Don't let them escape!

They've sent a party to hunt us. Run!

Did you stinky little rat really think you could run away from me, the Chief of Border Control?

[Immigration Office]
You're Japanese?!
You? Who came here in a ship with illegal immigrants?
I've got his passport.
Todoroki Jin...

要注意 ...Warning...
登録抹消ズミ ...Records deleted...
無資格 ...Unlicensed...

I'm afraid your passport is invalid.
You're no longer a Japanese citizen! Therefore you'll be executed!
All right!




Shoot! Shoot him down!

This is... Tokyo?!

The number you dialed is no longer being used.
Please check the number again...

Jin, stay away from Tokyo. Ryouga.

Ugh... H... He...

He... Help... me...

Got you! Moron!

Give me food and your valuables!
If you think I'm just a little brat, I'll blast your head off!

Wa... Wait! I-I'll shoot for real!
No shit, man! I'm serious!


H-Help... I'm just hungry... It wasn't loaded!

This is good!
It's been a while since I ate dry food.

So, you came here looking for the guy who wrote this letter?

"Stay away from Tokyo..."
Well yeah, this isn't a place where people want to live.

Only people of Tokyo Company can live in that "city."
The rest are "Damned." They have to drink dirty water, and rummage in trash for food.

Tokyo is a city of contrasts. Heaven and Hell. Prosperity and decay. A place for the Elite and the Damned.

I bet your friend's either living in this slum like a rat or has been already executed.


Come with me. Tonight's full moon, so I can show you something interesting.

They're illegal immigrants.

If you let loose of the rope, your dad will be like him.
Bwahahaha! The sulfuric acid will eat its way up to the bones!
That guy is Oniyama, the chief of Border Control. Killing people is like his hobby. That sicko enjoys killing people like that in various ways.

All these people are deported from their countries. This also spells more illegal immigrants.
That's why the Tokyo Company holds the "Carnival," a public execution to scare them off.

You're one persistent brat.
Put some weight on his old man's back!

I'm begging you! My child is sick!

I-I'm... fine...
I... I'll not let go of the rope.


I feel sorry for them. They dreamed of a better life if they'd come to Tokyo.
They overcame the hardships to realize their dream to come to Japan, but...

I'll be cured when we come to Japan, right?
W-We can call Tokyo our utopia, right?

Yan! Let go of me!
Let go of the rope!

N... No!
I... I won't let go even if I die!

Gehehehe. I'm moved by your family bond.
Put some more weight! Gehehehe.


Is this... Is this Tokyo?!
The place I was born and grown up?

Is this Tokyo?!


Who the hell are you?!

You are those illegal-



Guwaaah! I'll send you to the other world with this acid!
You wanna see what Hell is like?

You... bastard... What... did you do...?

You'll leave the country through the open sea with this little boat.

Jin! You've to get on it, too.
You've killed an employee of the Company. They won't let you get out of here alive.

I'll stay here.
I must find Ryouga no matter what.

Thank you for everything, Jin-san.
I hope we meet again somewhere.

In order to save Ryouga from Tokyo...
