Akudama Drive Season 1: Plotline

Akudama Drive Season 2

In a chaotic future where Kansai became a vassal state of Kanto, multiple highly skilled criminals, called Akudama, are sent a message from an anonymous client to free a death row prisoner named Cutthroat before they are executed. Four Akudama respond to the challenge and descend into Kansai Police Headquarters to earn a big payday to rescue these guys.

However, once inside, they discover the job was part of a larger scheme by their client to make them work together on a bigger job: to infiltrate the Shinkansen and steal precious cargo from a vault at the front of the train. Roped into the job are an ordinary girl arrested on a minor charge but forced to keep up the appearance of a Swindler, and a low-level Hoodlum who was accidentally broken out of jail during the initial heist. 

The team must work together to finish the job and earn their large payday, all while keeping ahead of the Executioners from the Kansai Police on their tail. Later the raid was joined by Swindler. At the end of the season, she was unable to continue, so she asked Courier to get all the children to a safe place and give them some money. Swindler became the decoy and fought the executioners while Courier was escaping. However, Swindler was killed in the battle. Sadly, Courier also died due to his wounds, but by that time, all the children reached a safe place.
