Synopsis for Sakamoto Days
Tarou Sakamoto was considered the greatest hit man of all time. Feared by many, he was at the top of the underground world until he met and fell in love with a woman. As a result, Sakamoto gave up his life of crime and now works as a store clerk. Leaving his shady past behind proves more difficult than Sakamoto originally imagined. Many of his former rivals and associates don’t believe he has really left the business and show up hoping to take him down. Banned from killing, Sakamoto must find creative ways to subdue his enemies and keep them from harming his family, his shop, and the small town he resides in.
