About the game series

Step forward if you wanna die!
Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima

"Midoriyama": Kiryu is the way yakuza used to be. We kept the streets clean. People liked us. We didn't bother ordinary citizens. We respected our bosses. Now, guys like that only exist in video games.
"Shirokawa": I don't know any ex-yakuza running orphanages.
"Kuroishi": There was one a few years ago. A good guy.
"Midoriyama": You sure it wasn't just a tax shelter?
"Kuroishi": Sure it was a tax shelter but he ran it like a legitimate thing. You know.
