β€œYes, this is the uncertain, insecure and sexist work world young women are wading into these days. Might as well pack a piece and get paid for not taking any Shiitake, ladies.”

This fun twist on the classic buddy comedy starts with Chisato and Mahilo β€” two high school girls who happen to both be highly skilled assassins β€” becoming roommates. The relationship between the pair quickly turns sour. However, when they find themselves targeted by the yakuza, the girls quickly realize that they will have to find a way to work together.
