About Danzai Lock
In a world wherein laws and regulations are laid down by any means necessary, the murderers are sentenced to death. They are detained in a region called “Prison District 6,” which functions because of a particular economic system. Numerous prisoners are being transported to this district. Yushin, who happens to be a teacher of religion (i.e., a monk), encounters a swordsman named Kunoji when the group reaches the city. In death row territory, the line between crime and justice diminishes.
