[edit] Plot Summary

On November 29th 1986, in a small town called Yamanose in Yokosuka, Japan, a mysterious man named LanDi arrives at the Hazuki Dojo. He demands that Iwao Hazuki hand over a mirror and accuses him of killing a man named Sunming Zhao, then kills Iwao, taking with him a mirror with a Dragon design. Iwao's son, Ryo, takes it upon himself to avenge his father's death and uncover the mysteries as to why he was killed, and what was so important about the Dragon Mirror.

With the help of Ryo's friends and people working in the nearby town Ryo is able to narrow down his search to the New Yokosuka Harbour District in Amihama. After receiving a letter addressed to his father in Chinese from a man named Yuandha Zhu, Ryo comes into contact with a man named Master Chen, and his son Guizhang. It's from him that Ryo learns of the existence of a second mirror which he later finds hidden in a secret basement of the Hazuki Dojo.

Still eager to find LanDi, Ryo gets a job working at the harbour as he hears a notorious gang called the Mad Angels operates in that area and are involved in Chinese black market deals. Ryo is certain that if he can make contact with this gang he can then learn more about LanDi's current location. Soon enough, he comes into contact with the gang and it's leader, Terry, although at the expense of putting Nozomi at risk. Terry and Ryo make a deal that if Ryo injures Guizhang enough to keep him out of their way, they will take Ryo to LanDi. Ryo agrees but doesn't intend to harm Guizhang, instead he explains his idea and tries to get him to feign defeat, but Terry takes advantage of the situation by trying to kill them both. Ryo and Guizhang are then forced to go up against the entire Mad Angels gang and eventually learn that LanDi has already left Japan for Hong Kong.

Ryo is still intent on pursuing LanDi and getting to Hong Kong so Master Chen offers his help. Whilst he does not know of Yuandha Zhu's whereabouts Master Chen gives Ryo the address of Lishao Tao, someone in Hong Kong he says can be trusted. Guizhang was also to accompany Ryo to Hong Kong but was injured at the last moment in a fight with Chai and is forced to wait behind until he heals. Ryo then heads out to Hong Kong alone...
