Story
Lawyer Sakagami Mai takes an interest in Mashiba Yutaro, a jack-of-all-trades who appears in court as a defendant. She quickly arranges for his release on bail and introduces work to him. Her younger brother Sakagami Keishi set up a company called dele.LIFE and has been working solo. His work is to delete all unfavourable digital records left in the computers and smartphones of his clients in secret after they die. Keishi’s computer terminal detects a signal. The device of a client Yasuoka Haruo, who is a gossip writer, is no longer operating. Yutaro heads over to confirm his death and discovers Yasuoka who appears to have committed suicide. Keishi immediately tries to delete his digital records. However, Yutaro learns that Yasuoka had made a promise to his son Shun, and argues that he could have been murdered. He suggests that they try to find evidence by checking the contents of the digital records. They soon determine from information in a schedule app that Yasuoka had met frequently with a person called Katayama Kaoru from Jonan Police Precinct. Yutaro visits Kaoru’s apartment in order to ask her. However, he is attacked by a mysterious man who comes out all of a sudden. Meanwhile, Keishi discovers a hidden folder containing “unspeakable facts” among the digital records.
