Synopsis

Everyone is a Villain

The curtain rises on the criminal activities of the Akudama.

Long ago, there was a war between Kanto and Kansai, and the world was separated. Kansai became a vassal state of Kanto and developed independently. However, politics and the arm of the law decayed, and crime became prevalent. Those criminals are called “Akudama.”

The setting of Akudama Drive is a highly developed, but warped society. How do the Akudama act as themselves in this society? The virtues of the Akudama gathered here will clash.
