[ Story ]

Shiozawa is a known and feared killer. But not only is he very skillful, his motivations are almost entirely moral ones. An ex-kamikaze pilot, he feels that he has known good men and true, and his anger is intensely aroused at the sight of the kind now considered important and powerful.
When approached by a boss to kill a notoriously corrupt politician, he asks an enormous sum, and when it is promised, goes directly to his victim, Owada, and murders him.
This impresses Maeda and Keiko who have approached him to cooperate in a multimillion dope deal they are involved in. In so doing they are going over the head of Kimura, the boss who paid for the death of Owada, to get a bigger cut of the money.
They are awed by the meticulous care shown by Shiozawa in going over every detail of this new job, his precision in planning and foreseeing every possible hitch. At the same time they are thinking of some way that they can also get Shiozawa's share.
All of their plans are upset when Kimura appears after having heard about the job.
In the battle that ensues, a number of people are killed including Kimura himself and both Maeda and Keiko lose their share of the narcotics. When Shiozawa walks out on them, however, they notice that he leaves his share to them-indicating that his true motive is not wealth at all but something more personal.
