Yakuza: Like a Dragon: 2000-2019
Ogasawara meets Ryo Aoki while they study at Harvard University. Their shared beliefs on Gray Zones in Japan leads to a partnership where they create Bleach Japan. Ogasawara is given leadership of the organization so Aoki can enter politics.
Ogasawara learns from Yu Nanba of Yutaka Ogikubo's counterfeit operation. With Aoki's assistance, he teams up with Reiji Ishioda, who assists Bleach Japan's secretly Omi Alliance-backed raid on the Geomijul. Ishioda and Nanba are defeated by Ichiban Kasuga and his friends, giving Seong-hui enough time to burn evidence that would implicate Ogikubo. Ogasawara is captured and interrogated afterward.
For his failure, Aoki orders the Omi to have him killed. He uses Ogasawara's death to further bolster his popularity.
