His exceptional skills have earned him wealth, respect, and a sense of purpose. Yet, beneath the fearsome moniker lies a man who indulges in simple pleasures, favoring silly humor and mediocre television shows over the grandiose lifestyle his reputation might suggest.

Following an intense period of violence and enforcement in Tokyo’s criminal underworld, The Fable’s superior suggests he take a hiatus to enjoy the fruits of his labor. Thus, The Fable embarks on what proves to be his most challenging assignment yet: to spend a full year living as an ordinary citizen in Osaka, far removed from the chaos of Tokyo and the criminal lifestyle. He approaches this task with the same level of dedication and meticulousness that he applies to his work as a hitman.

However, the transition to a “normal” life is fraught with uncertainty. The question looms large: Will the criminal elements of Osaka allow The Fable to temporarily retire from his notorious career, or will the allure of his legend prove too tempting for them to disregard, drawing him once again into the depths of the underworld?
