Dragon as­cent


This is a leaner, meaner Kiryu, il­lus­trated by an open­ing scene where he de­liv­ers a heavy beat­ing to a whim­per­ing, ter­ri­fied debtor, be­fore pulling a wad of crisp notes from his prone vic­tim’s in­side pocket. The poor sap later winds up dead, with Kiryu in the frame for his mur­der. You may not be sur­prised to learn that this all re­lates to a land deal in the plot in which the killing takes place, with an ex­com­mu­ni­cated Kiryu be­ing dragged back into the dis­pute. There’s no bet­ter man to set­tle an ar­gu­ment, af­ter all – but with Mil­len­nium Tower no longer the fo­cal point of Ka­muro­cho, it re­mains un­clear where he’ll be tak­ing his top off to re­solve mat­ters for good.
