Acting on a tip, Section 9 breaks up a cabal of thieves hell-bent on wrecking a Japanese financial institution. Shortly after the raid, a Chinese intelligence official contacts Section 9 and informs them of suspicious activity that he believes may indicate an assassination attempt by Chinese Socialists on a prominent, yet reclusive, Japanese multi-millionaire named Kanemoto Yokose. Section 9 is therefore tasked with protecting Yokose, a 56-year-old ex-mathematician who has amassed a fortune by playing the stock market. Section 9 and the assassin arrive at the mansion within minutes of each other, but after reaching Yokose's bedroom both sides make an unexpected discovery: Yokose has actually been long dead, the reason people believed he was still alive being his automated financial program that continued to manage his investments.
The symbols in the title "¥€$" refer to the Japanese yen, the euro, and the US dollar, respectively.
