The tragic action story of those who cheat death, presented by Kohske (original story), Shukou Murase (director), and Manglobe (animation production).
Worick and Nicolas both work as "Handymen" who take on any job within the mafia-controlled city of Ergastulum, ranging from delivery to murder, from bodyguarding to searching for people. The mafia and the police both tip their hats at them, and they accepted all sorts of requests as a neutral figure that isn't affiliated with any syndicate. One day, from a request from the police, they meet a prostitute. Normal people that can only live within this closed city, and those with superhuman powers that are called the Twilights. Past and present link to one another. Duty and destiny overlap. -- When two meets one, the chaos of the city accelerates.
Worick Arcangeloage 35
A gigolo that entertains women, and a Handy Man alongside Nicolas. Not one of the Twilights, but has a certain power that surpasses ordinary people.
Nicolas Brownage 34
Worick's partner. Uses a Japanese katana as his weapon. Is deaf, and uses sign language and lip-reading to hold conversations. One of those that are called Twilights, and his rank is A/0.
Alex Benedettoage 24
A prostitute that works in the forbidden zone.
Chad Adkinsage 56
An inspector in criminal squad 1 at the central station. Because he is friendly to the Handymen, he is treated as a strange one even within the station.
Cody Balfourage 26
Chad's subordinate. Tends to be timid, and is thrown about every which way thanks to his uninhibited boss.
Dr. Theoage 31
A private practitioner in Ergastulum. Skilled but foul-mouthed, and very scary when angry.
A nurse working under Theo. Attached to Nicolas.
