His target is Ransui Tokunaga, a key figure in the anarchist movement that threatens the establishment and the Emperor. 

Tokunaga possesses a document that could blow away the forces of reaction and the government, in the form of a letter that reveals their involvement in framing and executing a number of innocent people in order to further their own political ends.
