The original Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens novels are written by Chiaki Kisaki, illustrated by Hako Ichiiro, and published in Japan by ASCII Media Works under their Media Works Bunko imprint. The story of Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens is set in the seemingly peaceful city of Fukuoka, which secretly harbors an intricate criminal underworld where all sorts of illegal activities – such as torture, revenge, and even murder – are for sale.
Against this backdrop, private detective Senji Banba investigates a disturbing urban legend: rumor has it that “a killer of killers”, an assassin who preys on other people who commit murder for hire, has set up shop in Fukuoka. As Banba digs deeper, he uncovers a dark conspiracy that threatens to shake up the underworld.
