From 10.00 p.m., Saturdays, 23 January – 27 March 2021



Fushimi Kyosuke is a former detective of the Kanagawa Prefectural Police’s First Investigation Division. He quit after his fiancee Yuki Miho was murdered by a serial killer and opened a private investigation agency that specialises in investigating infidelity. It has been three years since Fushimi left the police force. The Kanagawa Prefectural Police has set up an investigation support analysis centre, known as KSBC for short. It is a unit which tackles criminal investigations by analysing big data collated real-time such as footage from some 5 million surveillance and security cameras nationwide. Fushimi’s ex-boss Shimabara Yuri at the First Investigation Division has been put in charge of KSBC. She offers him a role as a special investigator to conduct investigations based on the results of the analyses. He sets out his terms that she must agree to accept his investigation team as KSBC investigators. However, the people he brings over are all former criminals with dark pasts – Minatogawa Yumiko, an ex-Self Defence Forces officer who murdered her husband; Yamazaki Tatsujiro, a former university professor in criminal psychology who was arrested for fraud; and Komaki Kaname, a young genius hacker. While KSBC data analyst Nagashi Fumika and others are perplexed that they have been allowed to join, a woman is attacked at the carpark of a park and taken away by a man. Fushimi and these former criminals use their skills to track down the culprit.

Kamenashi Kazuya as Fushimi Kyosuke
A former detective of the Kanagawa Prefectural Police’s First Investigation Division who is now a KSBC special investigator. Three years ago, his fiancee was murdered by someone and he quit the police force. After that, he opened a private investigation agency together with Yamazaki Tatsujiro, Minatogawa Yumiko and Komaki Kaname specialising in investigating infidelity. At that time, he received an offer from Shimabara Yuri, who was his superior during his time at the First Investigation Division, to be a special investigator at the newly established KSBC. He has a cool personality and exceptional perceptiveness and energy. But he is not able to control his emotions when it comes to matters connected to his late fiancee’s case. While investigating cases, he frequently throws the people around him off by acting independently on his own hunches … …

A KSBC special investigator. He is a talented hacker who is skilled at handling IT equipment and plays a central role in investigative analysis at the centre.

He was discovered by the police the fifth time he hacked into the Ministry of Defence’s servers and was arrested. While he has a quick mind and is good at analysing data, he has a tendency to behave arrogantly but means no offence. Although he seems to carry out his work at KSBC with indifference, there is an undercurrent of righteousness.

His interest is shogi.
