Mike: "Very well, I'll do this, but it's the last job I do for you, Asuka. After this, I'm going my own way."
Asuka: "I don't see how you can live without me, Mike-San. We'll see what happens."
Mike and Asuka Kasen

Bad Pimpin' is a mission in Grand Theft Auto Advance, given to protagonist Mike by Yakuza co-leader Asuka Kasen from her mansion in Bedford Point on Staunton Island, Liberty City.


Asuka has discovered the identity of the explosive expert involved in the death of Mike's old partner Vinnie. However, before she will tell Mike she wants him to take care of a pimp who has been stalking some of her prostitutes. Mike drives to the pimps location in Newport and kills the pimp and his associate.

After killing the pimp and his associates Mike returns to Asuka's home, who proclaims her love towards him and persuades first reluctant Mike to have sex with her. Mike leaves later on, not able to feel his legs, and decides to follow-up on Asuka's lead into Vinnie's killer.

He drives to a building in Torrington and finds the explosives expert dead on the floor. He finds a message from someone, which tells him to go to the Wichita Gardens area of Shoreside Vale. With no other information, Mike decides to go to Shoreside Vale. However, as he begins to drive away he is attacked by the Mafia, unhappy at their men being kidnapped and shipped to Asia. The Liberty City Police Department also begin to chase Mike, who uses the Pay 'n' Spray to lose them. He then drives over the Shoreside Lift Bridge to Shoreside Vale. After this Mike refuses to do any more work for Asuka.
