Story

With a mysterious past history, Reiji Mano is a forensic researcher. With a self-belief that truth can always be revealed through a proper diagnosis, he’s a collected character who tries to distinguish himself from other researchers.

Meanwhile, Nonna Sawaguchi is another laboratory researcher who had originally stepped into the world of forensic research with no specific goals in mind. However, as she begins to deal with many murder incidences which she thought she would never be associated with, she gradually begins to feel deeply for many of the victims and their families along the way.

And lastly, completely different to Reiji Mano, a veteran detective called Ryohei Toramaru handles his cases based on his long years of experience.

As many of these comparative and distinctive characters all face up to various unbelievable turn of events, this is an incredibly unpredictable story full of nerve wracking action.
