A popular Doujinshi has been turned into a comic! And now a live-action movie! A strange friendship has somehow blossomed between a choir boy and an outrageous Yakuza, all thanks to karaoke!

I want a brief explanation of the story.
saori/closeeye
You're quite demanding, but okay. In short, it's a heartwarming story where a choir boy who desperately wants to “improve his singing” is approached by a young Yakuza member, and the two practice together.
boss/fedup
Yakuza are scary......
saori/smile
Calm down. Although he's a Yakuza, the young man Kyouji has his gentle sides too.
In the Yakuza group to which Kyouji belongs, they host karaoke tournaments four times a year! However, it seems that those who perform poorly in the next tournament will face a dreadful “penalty game”......
saori
Actually, the group that Kyouji is a part of loves karaoke so much that they host tournaments four times a year. However, those who perform poorly in the next tournament will...... shockingly face a severe penalty game from the boss (leader).
boss/fedup
A penalty game...... executed by the Yakuza leader......
saori
Kyouji wants to somehow avoid that penalty game. And who he happens to meet is...... a middle school boy named Satomi, who is in the choir club and has enough skill to be recognized by both teachers and Kyouji himself!
boss
Satomi-kun...... hang in there!
saori/high
Satomi has caught Kyouji's eye, and after listening to the circumstances, he decides to cooperate. While Satomi appears gentle, he's uncompromisingly stoic about singing. He will candidly criticize (even the older Yakuza) in coaching sessions. That's what makes it interesting!
boss/smile
Satomi-kun...... amazing!
saori
Will the terribly untalented Kyouji be able to avoid the penalty game in the karaoke tournament!? Under Satomi's ruthless guidance, a gradually growing, peculiar friendship unfolds in this hilarious karaoke gag comedy! By the way, the manga version is completed in one volume, so it's easy to read through. If you're interested, definitely check out the comics too!
