    Detective Sergeant Mariko Oshiro has been promoted to Japan's elite Narcotics unit - and with this promotion comes a new partner, a new case, and new danger. The underboss of a powerful yakuza crime syndicate has put a price on her head, and he'll lift the bounty only if she retrieves an ancient iron demon mask that was stolen from him in a daring raid. However, Mariko has no idea of the tumultuous past carried within the mask - or of its deadly link with the famed Inazuma blade she wields.

    Oshiro Mariko è l'unica detective donna del Dipartimento della polizia metropolitana di Tokyo, ed è costretta a lottare per guadagnarsi ogni grammo di rispetto. Decisa a investigare sul narcotraffico della yakuza, si trova invece assegnata a un caso che sembra il meno promettente della sua carriera: il tentato furto di un'antica spada. Il proprietario della spada, il professor Yamada Yasuo, sostiene che sia stata forgiata dal leggendario maestro Inazuma: le sue lame, secondo alcuni, possiedono qualità magiche e hanno il potere di incidere sul destino di chi le impugna.
