** BennettTheSage points out that the English equivalent would be naming them "Peach Peacherson and his daughter Peachy Peachman."

The Danger Service Agency is a small-time group of mercenary con-artists, operating in Japan in the [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture not so distant future]]. The DSA consists of three members: ActionGirl and weapons specialist Mikura, the tech-savvy Harada, and the balding ex-cop and nominal group leader, Kurokawa. Together, the trio will take on just about any job as long as the pay is right. And (at least for Mikura) the more reckless the request is, the better.

The DSA get in over their heads, however, when they are hired to kidnap Momokichi Momoi, the owner of the Peach Twisters baseball team. Unbeknown to the DSA, Momoi just so happens to also be one of the city's most powerful mob bosses… a useful bit of information that they unfortunately do not learn about until after they grab him. Panicked, the group decides that they should cut their losses by returning the mob boss and leaving the country. This plan has two major problems, however: they were identified by the target's bodyguards during the kidnapping, and apparently [[OhCrap Momoi didn't make it out alive]].

* AnimeHair: Harada, sort of. While his hair style is pretty wild (Think [[Franchise/{{Hellraiser}} Pinhead]] and you're halfway there), it's hardly impossible.

* TheCanKickedHim: The DSA sedate and abduct Momokichi through a false panel in the ceiling above his bathroom stall. He does not survive the ensuing battle between his kidnappers and bodyguards.
* TheCameo: Sawa from ''Anime/{{Kite}}'' walks by a window in one scene and pauses briefly, without any dialog.

** Mikura delivers a particularly wince-worthy one to one of Momokichi's goons, and just to emphasize it, he drops a bowling ball on his own head immediately after.

* LiteralSurveillanceBug: A tiny robotic ladybug is used by Harada to drug Momokichi's drink. That said, Harada could see his target just fine, since they were at the same bowling alley - the ladybug's POV on his watch was just for convenience.

* NeckSnap: Mikura does this to one of Momokichi's goons at the bowling alley. It doesn't kill him and he's seen again later with his neck stuck at an unnatural angle.

* ThemeNaming: Momokichi and Momomi Momoi, and the Peach Twisters - "momo" is Japanese for "peach".

* HeyItsThatVoice: In the English version, Mikura is voiceed by Creator/MelissaFahn (movie, credited as Tina Dixon) and Creator/LuciChristian (TV series), and you're likely to notice right away.
