Kuryu Kohei is a former juvenile delinquent who drops out of junior high and goes on to earn a high school equivalency diploma. After passing the law board exams, he turns his life around and becomes a public prosecutor. However, Kuryu is not your typical prosecutor, and likes to take on the job in his own way.

Amamiya Maiko is a sharp-witted paralegal who has her eyes set on passing the exam to become a public prosecutor and is always trying her best to get herself noticed by her boss. Kuryu ends up transfered to Amamiya’s division and becomes invested in the possibility of promotion. His unprecedented work behavior however earns him some setbacks.

Although his methods are unconventional, and he earns a reputation as a bad apple, Kuryu’s strong pursuit of justice slowly begins to have an effect on things around him.
