Story
One night, Amemura Shinsuke, a bartender at a Nishi Azabu bar called Myouga in Tokyo, is attacked by a male stranger and loses a part of his memories. However, he soon learns that he caused the death of a woman called Kishinaka Minae in a traffic accident one and a half years ago. And the man who came to attack him and later committed suicide, was her husband Reiji. For some reason, Shinsuke is frequently advised by the people around him that it is better not to recall bad things. He gradually begins to have misgivings about the truth of the accident. Then when Shinsuke returns to the bar on one rainy night, Ruriko, a woman in mourning clothes with a strong gaze and of unworldly beauty, shows up all of a sudden. She looks identical to Minae who died in the traffic accident. Someone, either Shinsuke’s missing girlfriend Murakami Narumi, his life’s teacher Ejima Koichi or Myouga’s proprietress Ono Chizuko, is lying. Who is trying to trap whom? The detective Kozuka Yohei begins to investigate as if motivated by the darkness of the case. From the time of Ruriko’s appearance, Shinsuke descends into a world of madness and anguish as she boldly seduces and toys with him. Does she truly exist or is she a figment of imagination conjured by a guilty conscience?
