[ Story ]

Ako (Akiko Wada) is a tall handsome teenage girl who acts as leader of a group of women hoodlums in Shinjuku , a busy business and entertainment center in western Tokyo.
Wearing blue jeans and glasses and driving a Honda 750, Ako appears on the scene of a fight between two rival groups of girls at a construction site near the western entrance of the National Railways' Shinjuku Station one Saturday evening and helps Mei (Meiko Kaji) and her group members. Mei and her followers were fighting to make Shinjuku a clean town free from evil and violence. At first they thought Ako was a man, and were surprised later to find her of the
same sex.
Realizing that one of the group 's members, who failed to get away from the free-for-all, is being roughed up by Toshie (Mari Koiso), leader of the rival group, and others, Ako attempts to storm into their hideout with a knife in her hand. The second clash does not occur, however, as a result of mediation by Hanada (Goro Mutsumi), a hoodlum.
Meanwhile, Mei's lover Michio (Koji Wada) seeks admission to the Seiyokai, a group of gangsters controlling the Black Shirt Corps by fixing a boxing match involving Kerry (Ken Sanders), his old-time friend.
Cheered by Ako and others, however, Kerry knocks out his opponent despite the rigging arrangement. This naturally enrages the Seiyokai which threatens the life of Michio.
A showdown ensues between the Seiyokai and Mei's group. Hanada, leading a band of Black Shirts, attacks the hideout of Mei's group and shoots Michio. Mei thrusts a knife deep into Hanada's stomach, but dies from his gun.
