A series of unfortunate events resulted in Makoto “Edamame” Edamura leading a life of crime – pickpocketing and cheating with others in order to make a living. However, having tricked a seemingly ignorant tourist, Makoto discovers that he was the one being tricked, and worse, the police are now following him.
During his escape, he again encounters a tourist who turns out to be a crook named Laurent Thierry and ends up following him to Los Angeles. In an attempt to defend his self-proclaimed title of “Japan’s Greatest Cheater,” Makoto challenges his opponent to determine the best cheat. Taking part in the competition, Laurent dropped them off at a huge mansion and announced that their target would be the biggest mafia boss on the West Coast.
Jumping from city to city, the Grand Challenger follows Makoto’s efforts alongside the cunning Laurent and his brilliant associates in the world of high-stakes international fraud. Soon, Makoto realizes that he received more than he expected as his self-proclaimed skills are constantly being tested.
