1945. Tokyo was trying to emerge from the ashes of war. In a corner
of the black market stood a flimsy soba (buckwheat noodle) eatery.
It was a delicate time just before the closing. A man appeared at
the threshold. "One moongaze (raw egg). With soba". This was none
other than the legendary Fast Food Grifter known as Moongaze Ginji.
His relentless scam quietly initiates.
The time changes. In the midst of the anti Japan-US Security Treaty
movement (1960), the streets rumored about the beautiful Foxy Croquette
O-Gin, who disappeared all of a sudden. Wandering the alleys in
the years of the economic miracle was Crying Inumaru, the loser.
Then came Cold Badger Masa, whose scandalous death made people aware
of the presence of Fast Food Grifters within the society. Later,
Beefbowl Ushigoro put an end to a major gyudon (beef and rice bowl)
restaurant chain, and Hamburger Tetsu shocked the entire fast food
Fast Food Grifters are the phantoms who rise and fall with the shifting
diet-styles, dissenting heroes who carved their names on the dark
side of dietary culture with their glare. Now their legend revives,
strong as ever...
