Japan Won the War. The year is 2020. The Tokyo Olympics are supposed to be a world stage for Japanese corporate advances in cybertechnology. The Third Reich, the Soviet Union, and isolationist America will bear witness to a reinvigorated Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere. Not if the yakuza have anything to say about it. The Japanese mafia sees nothing but yen signs. The Yamaguchi-gumi, the Sumiyoshi-kai, the Inagawa-kai, the Chinese 14K Triad, and the Korean Seven Star Mob have long awaited this opportunity. These five clans are are ready to seize the moment, and cut each other’s throats doing it. Yet stranger things than gangsters lurk in the shadows. Kitsune fox spirits pour drinks and light cigarettes for powerful men in hostess clubs. Tanuki prowl the alleyways seeking out mischief. Oni rehabilitate damaged boys and girls, only to unleash them on society at large. And red Shinto torii gates shimmer and lead unwary souls … elsewhere. Irrashaimase, and welcome to the world of Tokyo Yakuza! A shared world, alternate history dystopia where crime manga meets the Asian surreal. In this braided anthology, oyabuns and pimps meet bloody ends, the AI powering the Tokyo Stock Exchange works to dominate organized crime, and lonely outcasts are cast adrift in a vast metropolis.
