Just a Theory: Why Asami Ryuuichi May Be a SpyI just re-read the whole Finder Series story thus far (for the umpteenth time) in the last few days and this is what lead me to a theory: Asami Ryūichi may be a spy or at least working with some government agency.
What do we really know about Asami? He's a business man. He owns clubs and hotels where it's known that yakuza and gangsters make their deals. But have we ever seen Asami make a drug or arms deal? Not once has there been a scene where he's made a drug deal or exchanged illegal merchandise with anyone. In the very first chapter his character was set up by the crooked detective to Akihito saying that on the outside he looks like a legit business man and there is a rumor that he is "an unstoppable drug dealer involved in smuggling." Akihito infers that Asami was in charge of the drug scandal but, that is only an assumption he made by association. Akihito has never once caught Asami red handed with any sort of illicit merchandise.
Who ever said a spy had to be altruist
