Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Wiki

Saeki's Cosmetic Surgery Clinic is a clinic owned by Shinichi Saeki, who works as a cleaner for the underground. Though he is a skilled cosmetic surgeon and takes his profession seriously, Saeki also uses his clinic as a front for his side business of procuring, disposing of, and altering corpses. The clinic is often visited by other members of the Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens baseball team needing their wounds dressed, surgery performed, or looking to buy corpses or body parts.

General Information[]

The clinic is described as snug and small. During daytime hours, nurses and patients are around the clinic, but only Saeki is present in the evenings, handling bodies in a secret examination room in the back. In the first story arc, the bulletin board in the waiting room has a poster for the Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens grasslot baseball team, which is in need of both a pitcher and a shortstop.

Later, Jiro gives Kazuki Saitoh Saeki's business card, and Saitoh has cosmetic surgery performed, allowing him to distance himself from both Murder, Inc. and the national news bulletin that had pinned him as a murderer. Deciding on a new start, Saitoh calls Jiro and informs him that he would join the baseball team.

Saeki greets him when he wakes up in the morning and answers a panicked call from Genzo Gohda, who after seeing the mutilated corpse resembling Lin, has been looking for Banba in a panic. The two exchange stories, and when Lin learns that Banba has gone to retrieve his body from the Submarine Ninja, he rings Enokida, hoping to keep Banba out of danger.
