In Oedo in the Edo era, the dead had Kusaya fish soup poured on them and came back to life as zombies. The entire Edo town makes a fuss over zombies who bite people and continue to increase. Hansuke, who came from Niijima Island known as a famous production area of Kusaya, succeeds in controlling them. He founds a staffing company, “Hakenya Hansuke” with Oyo, whom he takes a fancy to, and gets the zombies to work. Zombies take on unpleasant chores for less money without a murmur and Hansuke does gangbuster business. But eventually, battle ensues between the temporary worker zombies who never die and the people who lost their jobs due to zombies.
