One night, Sakura Sakurakoji is riding on a bus on her way home, but something strange seems to be happening outside.

For some reason, Sakura sees people being burned in a strange blue fire, and a boy is staring in the middle of this fearful incident. Sakura is surprised, but still manages to get out of the bus and asks for help. She finds a police and tells the story, but once they arrive to the site; there is nothing, not even a trace of fire in the grass.

The next morning, Sakura goes to school just to find a new student has transferred to her class. His name is Rei Oogami, and for some reason, Sakura thinks he is related to that strange blue flame she saw in the park.

Sakura is really straightforward and doesn’t hesitate to talk to Rei, she simply speaks out her mind and asks where he was last night. In the school, a big commotion starts; after all, Sakura is a model student, strong in martial arts and really good looking. Now, everybody thinks she will confess to Rei, and once they talk a bit, it seems that Sakura’s love was rejected.

That afternoon, Sakura is able to talk to Rei once more, and she begins to think he wasn’t related to the park and actually, he seems to be a good guy. But Rei is different, he is actually the sixth Code:Breaker, a special type of assassin with strange abilities.

The next night, Sakura is in the park, and hears a scream; some gang is questioning a homeless person about some of their peers. It seems that they can’t be found anywhere and a couple days ago they were supposed to be at that park.

Sakura tries to help but ends up being beaten and hurt, before she is killed; Rei appears and turns on his abilities in the form of a blue flame. Now, Rei has no other choice, he has to fight and get rid of any nuisances around.

Main Characters

Rei Oogami is a mysterious young boy about whom not much is known. Sakura first witnesses him burning people with a blue flame in a park; the day later he transfers to her school. When Sakura confronts him about his killings, Ogami reveals to her that he’s in fact a “Code:Breaker”, a secret government agent who punishes those who can’t be punish by the law. His code number is 06, meaning he’s the weakest member of the Code:Breakers.

Sakura Sakurakouji is thought to be cute and helpless, but she’s actually a martial arts expert and turns down guys who ask her out because they don’t know the real her. She attempts to befriend the dog whom she promptly names “Dog”. Her attempts are fruitless until Oogami comes. She is apparently an exception to Rei’s fire and cannot be burned. Sakura disagrees strongly with Oogami regarding his views on people, specifically criminals, and that they are trash who need to die.
