Gozen 3-ji no Muhochitai is a manga which trails after the life of a girl named Momoko. Momoko dreams of becoming an illustrator for a big design company. However, she gets a job at an office that designs pachinko parlors instead. Her employment is in a fast-paced office that involves gambling, something which is not within her dreams!
The office runs like a yakuza business, employing a not-so-ordinary designer who has a habit of stripping in the middle of the night. Momoko is startled to see the many strange and unusual things in the office, believing that this is definitely eccentric! However, because she has no other job to land on, she pulls her all-nighters, work harder even without returning home for a better sleep. Her office is filled with cigarette filled scent, wherein her voice is left unheard and a woman’s authority is belittled be men’s frightening orders. This is definitely a dangerous zone!
