The story takes place in Ikebukuro, Tokyo. The city is home to all types of people who should never be crossed, from Russians to yakuza to a serial slasher, a curious information broker, and a man with superhuman strength. Gangs of teenage punks wage turf wars in the streets while the public lives in fear and awe of an urban legend, the headless Black Rider, who rides a pitch-black motorcycle without head lights that makes sounds like a horse. Mikado Ryuugamine is a seemingly normal high school boy who seeks the extraordinary. When he moves to Ikebukuro, a mad scramble for the Black Rider's missing head breaks out.
