Plot

A “finance broker” named Yuichi Mafune who is in reality a scam artist is contacted by a man named Seki on behalf of a mysterious person known only as “M”. M wants Mafune to help him steal the M-Fund, a cache of wealth originally confiscated by SCAP unit commander Major-General William Marquat during the American occupation of Japan with the intention of funding the rebuilding effort.

Due to unclear record-keeping, nobody knows exactly what became of the M-Fund, so Mafune and his team must travel from Japan to Russia, the United States, and Thailand as they attempt to track it down. Meanwhile, an American investment banker hires an assassin named Osamu Endo to stop Mafune’s search.
