...that bakeneko of yours—keep him happy. Teams will vie for his favor as tech competent yokai are hard to come by. The Containment Unit already says it has dibs.Due to its criminal nature, the Akumakai doesn't use a police force.

Their modus operandi is extermination, unless the trouble makers show recruitment promise.
Purposeyokai survival is assured. the Cleanse handles the rest. Almost daily, they deal with idiots who let the Eyeless Ones get out of control. But they also clean up crystalized ki released into the air (which can cause major breathing issues), ensure that large masses can be flushed in the Cleanse, and no invasive species enter Sumichou.
The heavy fighting is done by a group of yuurei, who by nature lack a physical body. Each yuurei member controls a heavily armored robot body through a tether to their ghostly magic. They can float above the chaos for their own safety.
The tethering/detethering process is time and ki consuming, as ghosts are usually tightly location bound. But the transfer breaks the location connection and reattaches the ghost to the assigned mech. Sometimes during the process, the yuurei’s energy depletes to the point they end up being extinguished. Never-the-less, the opportunity for locational freedom in Sumichou means the waiting list is long.

They also ensure that the beast that feeds on the flushes in the Cleanse stays in its cage. yokai with strong STEM backgrounds through bribes to Tezuka, the heartless questioner at the Heavenly Palace's North Gate.
Releasing the eyeless ones on palace property is a serious crime that could cost countless lives unless they're dealt with immediately.
