Satomi Shinobu and his senior Inokuma Yuki are members of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department’s Mobile Investigation Squad. Although the two of them are partners and rivals at work, they are actually a dating with the possibility of getting married. They are keeping this under wraps because they will be immediately transferred if their relationship in the workplace is exposed. While patrolling the streets one day, Satomi and Yuki learn that the dead body of a woman who died an unnatural death has been discovered. When they rush to the scene, Hayami Sho from the Criminal Affairs Division is already there and he makes a caustic remark that irritates Yuki. Satomi finds the beautiful Tachibana Kara whom he had seen at a karaoke shop the night before among the employees who are at work. However, she lies that she was at home. He notices her odd stare at Yuki and feels a touch of uneasiness. That night, plastic surgeon Tsukimoto Kei is in a taxi. When he alights, he alerts the driver that the seat is dirty. The apologetic but angry driver takes a female passenger next and disappears into the dark. The next day, Kara shows up again in front of Satomi and Yuki. Yuki does not respond to Kara who solicits her name card. Furthermore, Kara has got in touch with Watari Kohei who lives in the apartment building opposite in order to check up Satomi’s apartment and monitor his movements. She successfully ingratiates herself and moves into Watari’s apartment. Yuki is being targeted by Kara although Kara’s objective is unknown. However, Yuki is completely unaware of this. She learns that her father Bunichi, who is also a police officer, has found out about her relationship with Satomi and she gets worried. A new case happens. Another woman who died an unnatural death is found naked and only wearing a sock. A sock has also been stuffed into her mouth. Satomi suggests to his boss Ando Minoru that this could be a serial murder, but he is ignored. That night, Satomi takes out a book with the title ‘Serial Killer’ from the bookshelf in his study and reads it. “A serial killer frequently stalks victims and tries to search for prey in the neighbourhood and familiar places. Once the prey has been determined, the killer will attempt to gain its trust … …” While Satomi is searching through the criminal profiles, a beautiful woman raises her hand on a street and stops a taxi. She is Kara … … A short while later, another dead body is discovered. Satomi and Yuki arrive to inspect the crime scene. The victim’s mobile phone has photographs of the women who were murdered. Then Satomi finds the same ‘Serial Killer’ book that he has among her possessions. That night, Satomi drops by a pub with Yuki. Detecting a scent, he remarks that he has been smelling this nice fragrance often recently. Kara who has been following them, quietly stands up after hearing these words … … Kara will bring about a significant change in the destinies of Satomi and Yuki. Satomi starts to become curious about Kara who will always appear at the crime scenes of the subsequent wave of bizarre murders. Kara mocks the police and the two of them are gradually at the mercy of her lunacy … What is the truth of the cases and Kara’s true identity?
