Ostensibly, he is the owner of the sweet store Katsura, but in reality, he is a fixer in the scam industry who stands at the top of the scam artists. He sells information necessary for scams and scam tricks. Kurosaki also gets information on scams from Katsura, and is a master of scams.
He lost his entire family when he was only 15 years old. His father was a victim of a scam and he decided to take revenge. He is the landlord of an apartment building and his goal is to devour every con artist on the planet in order to find his father's con artist, Mikimoto (Yajuro Boso).
Seeking information about these con artists, Kurosaki visits Katsura, a sweet shop in downtown Tokyo. Toshio Katsuragi (Tomokazu Miura), ostensibly the owner of the sweet shop, but actually a fixer in the world of con artists, appears before Kurosaki. Katsuragi has been keeping Kurosaki as a con man since a certain incident in the past.
Kurosaki meets Tatsuki Yoshikawa, a victim of Eiichiro Funakoshi's scam. Tatsuki's daughter, Tatsuki Hyobashira (Yuna Kurushima), is furious that Kurosaki has become a swindler. However, Kurosaki remembers how the Yoshikawa family was scammed, and the secret Kurosaki has been hiding comes back to life.
Kurosaki begins to think that this swindler may be Mikimoto's clue to assassinating the Yoshikawa family. The white heron has tricked me, I want to eat that guy.
