Mikado Ryūgamine is a young man who longs for the exciting life of
the big city. At the invitation of his childhood friend Masaomi, he

doesn't want to cross in the city: a violent man dressed like a
bartender, an information merchant, and a mysterious gang called
"Dollars". And to top it off, Mikado witnesses an urban legend on his
first day in the city: the "Black Rider".
