Akudama Drive Spoilers

The people of Kansai had no choice but to accept Kanto’s peace terms. After all, they had lost the war. But now, with their society gradually descending into chaos and lawlessness, the inhabitants of Kansai wonder whether it was all worth it. The show’s point-of-view character is Ordinary Person, who becomes an initially-reluctant member of the Akudama. The group is also comprised of Courier, Brawler, Hacker, Doctor, Hoodlum, Cutthroat, and Black Cat.

In episode 4, the group discovers two children inside the vault. In episode 5, the children explain that they had conjured up the Black Cat and request the Akudama to travel to Kansai on a mission for them. They tell the group that they will pay them the same amount as before. As Hacker has successfully taken out the bomb from Cutthroat’s neck, he decides to leave. The rest, however, make a unanimous choice, to let Ordinary Person be part of the group for a longer period. Elsewhere, the executioners overlook their injuries and prepare for an attack.
