During the fight in Kyoto and the attack on Ebisu, Harumi met her fatal end as she was slaughtered by the attacking forces. Ebisu seemed lost, until a strange letter appeared on the footsteps of the Ebisu HQ. The letter seemed old, with piles of different stamps stuck to the envelope as if it had been to the moon and back three times before it arrived at the Ebisu HQ.
The letter read as such:
Although things may seem dark and difficult in these times, I urge you to stay strong. We may no longer be able to trust the government, and money may be hard, but ever asset of mine and every shop and geisha house I own is now in the team's property. If you are reading this letter, I am dead. If I am dead, do not despair. I have taken measures to ensure the safety of my dearest team, my family.
I urge those who remain faithful to Ebisu to carry out my final orders. Now that I am dead, I require you to find a new leader. I have chosen a young man, by the name of Shin'Ichi, currently located in China. You could call him my brother. He has the makings of a leader, but I need you to convince him to join Ebisu. He fights for our values and he can undoubtedly fix the problems Ebisu may be facing. I trust him with my life, and I know that he would never betray you all.
Love and Kisses,
But Shin's being chased by The Facility and they want their research back. Not to mention Shin's past experiences make him desperately afraid to lead such an important group, now possibly considered a terrorist group if they play their cards wrong. But Ebisu needs to protect the crumbling world, and they need a leader.
All Able-Bodied Ebisu Members should join.
Also open to those who want to kill/destroy Shin/Ebisu.
