''Togainu no Chi'' is the first BoysLoveGame made by [=Nitro+CHiRAL=]; it is noteworthy for its violence and dark storyline. It was later ported to the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 under the name ''Togainu no Chi: True Blood'' with the adult content taken out and some scenes censored, but containing more endings and a few new characters. One of the several manga adaptations (one which has no BoysLove content) is available in English from Tokyopop.

When Akira is accused of murder and sent to jail, he is approached by a mysterious one-armed woman named Emma. Emma has a deal for him; in exchange for his freedom, he will participate in a BloodSport competition taking place in the city of Toshima called Igura. The rules are simple; collect dog tags from other competitors by beating them in brawls. The one who collects the right tags gets to face off against Il-Re, the supposed undefeated champion of Toshima.

However, things aren't going to be easy for Akira; the people in the Igura are extremely brutal and not above murder in order to get what they want. There are also rumors of a mysterious black-haired man who has been killing off Igura participants seemingly at random, a man who seems to be [[ImplacableMan almost invincible]]. To top it all, Akira's best friend Keisuke has followed him to Toshima out of worry, and Keisuke is nowhere near ready to take on the dangers of Igura...

The one who collects the right tags gets to face off against Il-Re, the supposed undefeated champion of Toshima.

However, things aren't going to be easy for Akira; the people in the Igura Igra are extremely brutal and not above murder in order to get what they want.

Igra...



** In the game, Akira had to travel to Igura by foot, making it possible for Keisuke to follow him but in the anime it was changed to Akira being driven there. This was {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in the [[OnTheNext next episode trailer]] with Akira asking Keisuke how he mangaged to get to Igura and [[HandWave Keisuke replying that he was in a daze]].

* BlackAndGrayMorality: At first, the story appears to be the ExcusePlot of Akira being sent to Igura to kill Il-Re, while violence and sex ensues. Later, we find out that the factions involved (the Military, Vishico and some individuals) are at battle with each other, over Line and [[spoiler: its source, Nano]], and every side has questionable motives which do not take the protagonist or other individuals into consideration.

* CastFullOfPrettyBoys: All Igura participants are male. ''All'' of them. In fact, the city of Toshima seems to have no female inhabitants. The only female present in the series is Emma, and she is a relatively minor character. Of course, it's unsurprising considering the original media is BoysLove.
