Makoto meets a couple of girls at a New Year's Eve party, one of which he falls in love with. One month later she is found dead, strangled to death, and Makoto feels guilty hearing her die over his phone while not being able to do anything about it. He vows to use his underground connections the "G-boys" to catch the murderer.
Soon after he finds the likely culprit, a perverted old doctor, but as the story unravels Makoto finds out the old mans innocent and the plot thickens, uncovering the twisted shocking truth!
Based on the phenomenally popular live action Japanese television series, Ikebukuro West Gate Park is a very hip urban drama that takes place in Tokyo's trendy district of Ikebukuro, focusing around the troublesome Makoto. Filled with all the big city thrills and ills, involving sex, drugs, murder, and everything one can imagine blended with a touch of humor, this is a must-read series for all fans of Japanese manga and pop culture.
