The third movie begins on Jeju Island, South Korea, where a member of Hanabishi mob with S&M tastes, Hanada, roughs up two prostitutes and one of the Korean crime family lieutenants and kills him. What this young yakuza doesn’t know is that he just messed up with Mr. Chang (Tokio Kaneda), a Korean boss with immense power in Japan whom Otomo (Takeshi Kitano) now runs vice operations for.

The Korean crime family decides not to let the killing go by without retribution and sends Otomo back to Japan to settle the score with the Hanabishi mob. In order to deal with Otomo, the grand yakuza leader of the Hanabishi mob, Nomura (Ren Ohsugi), sets his underboss Nishino (Toshiyuki Nishida) and his deputy Nakata (Sansei Shiomi) to work.


Outrage Coda went through post-production work in March and had its premiere when it was screened at the closing night gala of the 74th Venice International Film Festival. Warner Bros Japan and Office Kitano are releasing the film in Japan on October 7.
