Volume 1: The story is set in Japan at the end of World War II. Tetsuya is a 15 year old pupil who has been mobilized to work in munitions. He is inspired by an old man during a game of mahjong:
Tetsuya: "If I don't go 'Chi' and 'Pon' I won't be able to finish."
Old Man: "That doesn't matter. If you just toddle along with little skill you will run out of luck. You just bring misfortune on your own head."
Tetsuya: "What's that? I've got no idea what you're talking about."
Old Man: "You will, in good time... - RON!"
The game is broken up by an air-raid that destroys the factory. Tetsuya is left amid the ruins of war and the chaos of surrender without a yen in his pocket.
