Opening scene (Taiyō Chapter):
The rain scatters heavily over a dark moon canvass, accentuated by the warning lights of thunderous roars within the clouds.
There is a young boy, no older than 8 years old, who stands mystified by this strange light in the distance. Infatuated by its presence, but feared enough that his movement remains frozen.
As the boy slowly tilts his head down, he closes his eyes; only to let a tear fall of his cheek and on to the bloody asphalt beneath his feet.
