クリス・ダンフォード、コードネーム「バラ 発疹はっしん」。
こいつをいかけて 上海しゃんはいから OEDOに
ねんぶりに 舞い戻まいもどってきた。
だが、この7ねんあいだおれっていた OEDO、
 特とく 犯罪者はんざいしゃたちのたむろする 旧市街きゅうしがいはすっかり 様子ようすわってしまっていた。

I've come back to OEDO for the first time in
seven years from Shanghai chasing after this guy.
However, during these last seven years, the OEDO that I knew...
