The DSA get in over their heads, however, when they are hired to kidnap Momokichi Momoi, the owner of the Peach Twisters baseball team. Unbeknownst 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]].

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.
