He makes a deal with a mysterious woman to get out of prison on one condition: to defeat the strongest man, the Il-Re, meaning the King, in a deadly game known as Igura. Igura takes place under the rule of a drug leader named Arbitro in the ruined remains of Tokyo now known as Toshima. When he first arrived in Toshima a group of thugs also participating Igura attemped to take Akira’s tags but a strange man with black hair and an odachi, known to others as Shiki, appeared and slaughtered every thug involved and continued to threaten Akira with death as well and asked him to beg for his life.
Akira refused and Shiki seemed amused with his ‘arrogant response’ claiming that everyone he’d killed and will kill was trash. Soon after, he found his long time friend, Keisuke. Akira asked what he was doing in Toshima as it was dangerous. Keisuke told him that he was worried about Akira and said that he was determined to join the game, Igura, as well and attempt to not be a burden to Akira. With this the two young men start their journey into Toshima to participate, to survive and to win in order to gain freedom.
Togainu no Chi is a Japanese BL visual novel created by Nitro+CHiRAL. The plot centers on Akira, a young man who was made to participate in a deadly game called “Igura” in post-apocalyptical Japan in exchange for being freed from jail. His goal is to beat “Il Re”, the strongest person in Igura.
After being devastated in the third World War, Japan was divided in two. Several years after the end of the war, a crime organization called Vischio has taken control of the destroyed city of Toshima, where they are holding a battle game known as Igra.
Igra is a battle game held in Toshima that may result in the murder of participants. To participate, one must meet with Arbitro and tell him their reason for their decision. Upon meeting with Arbitro, participants are given five dog tags, each engraved like a card in a standard deck of playing cards. One tag must hang from the participant’s neck as proof of participation. Participants must then put their lives on the line to collect others’ tags, with the goal being to collect a Royal Flush. If a participant collects a Royal Flush set of tags, they earn the right to challenge “Il Re” in battle. Battles end when one party either dies or lets their back touch the ground. The winner takes the loser’s tags and is free to do as they please to the loser after that, often resulting in the loser’s death.
The game’s main character, a young man named Akira, is falsely accused of a crime. Once arrested, a mysterious woman appears before him, offering him freedom if he agrees to participate in Igra and defeat Igra’s strongest man: the king, or Il Re. The story follows Akira’s life in the harsh, lawless Toshima as he fights both to survive and to unravel the mysteries developing around him.
