Here’s what you need to know about Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name’s Daidoji Faction and story:
While completing an assignment for the Daidoji faction, Kiryu gets caught up in a certain incident. Through this incident, he becomes acquainted with Akame, a mysterious woman who seems to be well-versed in Sotenbori’s underworld.
Akame gathers intel from all over Sotenbori via her Akame Network, an intelligence network comprised of the city’s homeless. As a jack-of-all-trades, she often accepts risky requests that most wouldn’t dare touch.
Kiryu joins forces with Akame, helping her complete these requests.
Their friendship deepens as they solve conflicts in the criminal underworld and tackle its poverty
Key Figures in the Daidoji Faction
Yoshimura (Portrayed by Mitsuaki Kanuka)
A manager in the Daidoji faction who specializes in violence. A cog in a cold-hearted and unfeeling organization.

Boss (Portrayed by Hiroshi Naka)
A high-ranking officer in the Daidoji faction and the general in the shadows.
Other than the fact that he is a high-ranking officer in the Daidoji faction, not much else is known about this wheelchair-bound old man.
As someone who possesses a significant amount of power within the organization, he demands Kiryu to keep the pact he made with the Daidoji.
Head priest (Portrayed by Ikkyu Juku)
The head priest of the Daidoji faction
Detached from his earthly desires, he enjoys playing Go by himself all day long.
He is one of the few people Kiryu confides in.
