The sound of the crowded city was the song that Inazuma City sung. An orchestra of cars honking, millions of rhythmic steps and people talking, the song of a busy metropolis. Inazuma City was this and much more, as Capital of Shin Nihon, the country that surged as a phoenix from the ashes of Japan. The afternoon was just starting and thousands of men and women were leaving their jobs and going towards their home. The public transportation, unlike other cities, worked like clockwork, and there wasn’t any bus, train or subway crowded with people travelling like cattle. Inazuma City was the pinnacle of technological development and urban planning, with a school for every child, an hospital bed for every sick, and a policeman for every crook, or so their City Hall Public Relations office announced it. They weren’t really too far from reality, but this perfection was only achieved by the hard work of the public officers and the advanced network of communication connected to the main computers of the City, the Benkei Network, named in honor of Musashibo Benkei, Japanese feudal Hero. As it namesake, the Benkei Network won’t fall down. The city isn’t all roses, as there are some patches that can be considered shady. The Garyuu Zaibatsu is in charge of the distribution and the sale of the goods in the, sometimes accused of being monopoly, Toyotomi-Mart, in reference to Hideoyoshi Toyotomi, one of the warlords in the Sengoku jidai, a mega-chain of shops of every size that populate every city in Japan, and even in some of the 7 cities. The police forces are considered the one most disciplined and effective in the whole world, with high tech armors created in the Shishido Research Labs. But not even them can face criminals that are skilled in the ways Ki, Mystical arts or just plainly superhuman men and women, or even monsters, so there is when the Private Senshi enter, they’re independent experts in taking out super human enemies , that live all over the city and are registered. Illegal Vigilantes exist, but aren’t really penalized except if they start behaving like judge, jury and executioner.
-Here live from the Shin Nihon Broadcasting Network, we come with the news for our country, our first story takes us to the Business District, were a group of inhabitants is starting an anti-human riot in front of the Sakura Supernatural Affair Office, home of the register of superhuman, as they asked for the public release of the Private Senshi register, the public officers of the Sakura ministry don’t have any kind of reply for the claims of the rioters, that work under the banner of the Anti-Senshi Organization, or ASO.- The camera changed and the newsman turned to face it with an impeccable smile.- In other news a gas line leak caused an explosion in the Central District, luckily it was detected with time and the sector was evacuated, stopping the loss of any life, but some property damage was caused and is already in repairs.- The voice of this newsman and his report was sounding in almost every TV that was turned on in the city, but somebody had the device turned on and wasn’t listening. The dark room only illumination was the dirty screen of the TV, a man sitting on a dusty bar was drinking cheap beer with his eyes staring at the void of his own soul, which as he discovered 10 years ago was empty and useless. He had sunk in his own depression and lack of use in this new world. He took another long sip of beer while he hoped that his surroundings would blur away, the booze knocking him down, but the implants that once made him so lethal and efficient now were stopping him from drinking his ass to sleep. Another day, another part of his immense fortune spent on booze. Hundreds of letters, job offers lied in the entrance of his bar, never opened, forming a pile that almost obstructed half door.

His body was full of scars, and covered in strange tatoos. He was a Kaiju Hunter, a specialist in fighting the giant monster that were created by the devious Mangetsu organization. He heard the TV but didn’t watch the screen; he was busy checking the straps of his armor. Alongside him a massive Nodachi, of modern design, built to withstand constant use and to be kept razor-sharp with ease. Batsu was a Private Senshi, but he wasn’t permitted to take jobs inside urban spaces thanks to his tendency to cause more damage than the ones he hunts. But thankfully he found his place in the world killing the monster that came from the pacific. He stood up and grabbed the blade with one hand, lifting it with ease. – Let’s go Kyotansen, the Kaiju are waiting for us.- The Modern Samurai left the dressing room and joined the others in the main ship of the Shin Nihon Fleet, the Yamatogawa. The wind speed increased as the Flying cruise hovered over the Pacific Ocean in route to a massive figure with faint resemblance to a Bear.
-The last piece of this segment is about the Hero Exchange program, that brings different registered post-humans into Inazuma to help them train, as we also send our young ones and not so young to train in other cities to reinforce the bonds between cities and increase the approbation for the Heroes that helps us and protect us from groups as the Raimei Rebels or the San Yama Gumi.- A young girl was suiting up in the department given to her by the government. She was preparing for her first day as a hero in Inazuma City. She worked in Europe before, and when the exchange program was proposed to her she decided to accept to visit relatives she had in the City. Young Ariana was taught by her father, the use of a style of combat using something called “Ferveur” a type of spiritual energy analog to the oriental Ki. Her father was part of an order of knights that existed since the crusades but always tried to act in secret, as they didn’t wanted to be used as the kings and popes weapons. They’re demon hunters, using spears infused with “Ferveur” to slay the mystical monsters. Ariana was young and new in this job, but she wanted to do the best she could. With evident enthusiasm, ignoring the TV while humming a French song, as she grabbed her spear and jumped from the high floor. The best part of her new job was this, she loved the feeling of the wind in her air as she dropped from a high altitude. –Let’s go! Inazuma City get ready to meet your new guardian! Demons beware” She shouted with evident glee
