Story
Mikumo Hana and Sakuraba Kazuma decided to part forever even though they love each other because she belongs to the L clan of professional thieves that is on the nationwide wanted list. However, the two of them finally wed after her father Takeru said the family would fake their own deaths. Despite overcoming numerous obstacles, theirs is only a common-law marriage because Hana is supposed to be dead. Kazuma is made to take responsibility for dating the daughter of the L clan and demoted from the First Investigation Division to a police precinct. He naturally keeps his marriage a secret at his workplace and pretends to be a bachelor. The Mikumos moved to Kazuma’s house. However, the Sakurabas are a family of police officers. Although Hana’s father Takeru is less flashy than before, his constant thieving causes the health of Kazuma’s father Norikazu to suffer and he ends up sick in bed. Hana seizes the opportunity to move out with Kazuma when her father also vacates the Sakuraba residence. As the couple begin life as newlyweds in a shabby apartment, Hana finds herself in a predicament when the police come to make door-to-door inquiries about a neighbour that is wanted. Her father saves her from this crisis. Worried about Hana and Kazuma’s wellbeing, Takeru gives them a luxurious apartment, needless to say stolen, as a wedding gift. The catch is that it is a two-generation family residence connected to the Mikumos’ new home. Then Hana’s older brother Wataru finds a huge target – Nobunaga’s hidden treasure – and the L clan swings into action again. Meanwhile in Kyoto, junior high school student Hojo Mikumo’s grandfather Soma, who is the head of a family of famous investigators, is teaching her about being an investigator. He is pleased when she deduces the criminals in a case that actually took place. What Mikumo does not yet realise is the Hojo family’s connection with the L clan.
