Port Mafia leader Mori Ougai orders a fifteen-year-old Dazai Osamu to investigate the appearance of a certain individual in the Yokohama Settlement area.


Prior to the events of the first season, Mori has just taken leadership of the Port Mafia, having secretly killed his predecessor who was showing self-destructive tendencies. Dazai, the only witness to the murder, acts as Mori's witness. A year later, Mori has Dazai examine strange rumours about the Predecessor's revival within an area, Suribachi City; The area was ground zero for a massive explosion several years prior, which created a massive crater where people live in the present. It is an area of conflict between the Mafia and 3 other organizations; GSS, Takasekai and The Sheep (who are composed almost entirely of juveniles). Dazai encounters Chūya, who is the head of the Sheep, who believes that Dazai is looking into the rumour of "Arahabaki"; A supposed deity, that was apparently summoned by a tortured foreign solider that created the explosion that resulted in the crater of Suribachi city. They briefly fight before being stopped by the arrival of the Predecessor. Chūya is later captured by the Mafia and is told to work with Dazai in exchange for the protection of captured members of the Sheep, as the rumours of the Predecessor and Arahabaki are connected to the same event.
