the leader of the Akogi group, a clan under Sukiya-kai. Reiji prepares to vow his
allegiance to Akogi by partaking in the ritual sake cup exchange with its big boss Ako.
But internal power struggles within Sukiya-kai and conflicts with arch-rival
Hachinosu-kai, who aims to take over Japan, embroils Reiji in one crazy situation after
another. Will Reiji ever be able to arrest Shuho Todoroki and complete his mission as
the “Mole?”
