The Department

Lu is one of about 100 or so special agents who work for ‘The Department of Death’. He meticulously plans and makes sure those who are due to die, die on time, in accordance with their fate. And not only does he arrange deaths for a living, he’s bloody good at it; the best in his firm.

When realizing his next appointment is with someone he knows; the pretty girl who serves him coffee every morning, Lu is unsure for the first time, about the job he does so well. When a series of events see this girl being in danger of dying at neither the time or place that she is expected to, Lu is forced to save her, causing a ripple effect of chaos far more disastrous than Lu could have ever imagined.
