[ Story ]

It is still early for the cherry blossoms, but the castle city of Sendai had never seemed so beautiful to Misaki Akira, a former high school teacher, ousted by shocked PTA members for an unlucky tangle with Tokyo hoodlums.
Akira had been brought up by a powerful boss, but had become a teacher in Tokyo instead of joining the gang. He now turns to his benefactor, but he finds the once flourishing business gone to seed due to the betrayal of Hyodo, a former henchman.
He is torn between his loyalty to his former boss and his conscience as a teacher, but when he learns that Hyodo is trying to evict some shop-keepers just to throw his weight around, he joins them and does a thorough job of cleaning up the town.
