Akira (Hayato Ichihara) admires Genyo Kamiura, the most powerful yakuza. Genyo Kamiura has been targeted numerous times, but he has never been killed. He is called the invincible person.  Because of Genyo Kamiura, Akira enters the world of the yakuza. His yakuza colleagues treat him like an idiot, and Akira can’t even get tattoos because of his sensitive skin.  An assassin is sent to take out Genyo Kamiura.

Viewing Notes

Not nearly as crazy or as fast-paced as I’d hoped but still a solid, nutty Miike flick! Not sure it would have worked well for me as a midnight screening at Fantastic Fest, but it was a fun watch with the family at home.
