1-Ichi is a 2003 Japanese direct-to-video crime action film directed by Masato Tanno.
Dai is the best fighter in the school. Every time he fights, Shiroishi is there with a big smile on his face. Dai thinks that Shiroishi is making fun of him, but in fact, he appreciates seeing all the violence that comes from fighting. Everybody bullies, makes fun of, and mocks Shiroishi, even the youngest on his karate course. But Shiroishi refuses to lose his temper and fight the others. However, a new student starts to make himself known by beating up all the students. In a fight with the new student, Dai ends up on the ground, completely destroyed. It seems that the new student will also beat up Shiroishi, but it seems that he will be the only one who will be able to provide a challenge.
