For the people of Kansai, peace came at a steep price, their freedom. Now, their home is increasingly descending into lawlessness. The most ruthless and conniving of all the criminals are Akudama, the mere mention of whom fills the people’s heart with dread. In the pilot episode, the audience is introduced to Ordinary Person, the main point-of-view character in the show. After she becomes unwittingly associated with the Akumaa, she begins serving as the audience’s window through which they can get a glimpse of the mysterious group.

In episode 4, titled ‘Speed’, the members of Akudama get ambushed by the same two executioners who attacked them earlier. They easily defeat Courier and Brawler, forcing Doctor, Cutthroat, and Hoodlum to join the fray. And the tide of battle soon starts turning. Ordinary Person and Hacker accompany Black Cat to the last carriage, where Black Cat just stops existing. There are only ashes and a seal left where Black Cat was a moment ago. They use the seal to open the vault. Inside, there are two children, among whom, the boy sent Black Cat to get the Akudama crew there. In episode 5, expect the show to focus on these two mysterious children. The executioner duo might show up again and fight the lovable rogues.
