Tokko Volume 1 begins when Shindo Ranmaru graduates from the police academy and is assigned to Tokki: Special Mobile Investigation Force. On the day of his graduation, he meets Rokujo Sakura, the half-naked girl he has been seeing in his dreams. He discovers she works for a secret group within Tokki, known as Tokko: Special Public Safety Task Force.
Shindo ends up joining Tokko to avenge his parents' death and solve the mysterious mass murder of 185 families in his hometown of Machida. Linked to the deaths are bottomless pits that begin to appear all around Japan. From these abysses emerge mysterious creatures with a hunger for human flesh and blood, sent to seek and destroy. The investigation soon points to something called The Box of Dirge. Will Shindo uncover the reasons behind the mass murders and avenge his parents’ deaths, or will this assignment prove to be the first and last assignment for this young rookie?
