The Fable (Japanese title: ザ・ファブル, Za Faburu) is a 2019 action-comedy film based on the 2014-2019 manga series of the same name by Katsuhisa Minami. The film stars Junichi Okada as "The Fable", an exceptionally talented and legendary yakuza hitman who is ordered by his superior (Kôichi Satô) to live as a normal civilian without killing anybody for an entire year, with him facing life-threatening consequences if he is discovered to have done so. As the Fable settles into his new identity as "Akira Sato", his life is threatened by figures from the underworld who are trying to find him. The film follows the Fable as he learns to live a normal life, as well as his encounters with the criminals who want him dead. A sequel, The Fable: The Killer Who Doesn't Kill, was released in 2021.
