When her fathers company goes bankrupt, Shiina finds out and resolves to sell herself into prostitution by attending high-class parties. But the orgy is suddenly interrupted by a young man wearing an oni mask, who after giving a speech on how savage and corrupted the upper class of Japan has become, shoots the attendants in order to state his point and then proceeds to brutally slaughter the most prominent guest using a fire axe. After he is gunned down by police and, before dying, has his head blown off by a device implanted into his own mask. Although presumed dead, the masked man returns again and again as a brutal messiah of justice.Thus, the act introduces a long, exceptionally violent campaign of murders performed by such masked individuals, targeting those who are deemed as responsible for the massive economic crisis and, as such, labeled as evil by the masked men, who all goes by the common alias Akumetsu (literally destroyer of evil).
