Welcome to a restaurant exclusively for assassins: the Diner. Its owner is a highly proficient killer, and so are its customers...

Kanako Oba is all alone, and thinks her life can't get any worse...until she applies for a dubious part-time job on a whim, and is instantly torn from her mundane existence. She ends up being sold to a restaurant with fortress-like walls, thick iron doors, and an intensely colorful interior. Trapped within, she has no choice but to work as a waitress for the owner Bombero, a genius chef who also happens to be a retired assassin.
"This establishment caters exclusively to killers. Even a wrongly-placed plate could result in a death sentence."
The diner is visited by a succession of deadly and highly unusual assassins. Before long, Kanako realizes she has been hurled into a world of insanity, in which every day is a fight for survival.
You won't be able to take your eyes off the screen, even for a second...
