Story
The rate of internet user anonymity in Japan is a significant 70% in comparison to other countries. are rife in society and “keyboard murders” have become a social problem. In response to pressure from the public, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department creates a special unit known as Yubitai on a trial basis. Led by Koshigaya Shinjiro, Yubitai analyses social media information that will aid investigations and gives a helping hand to the public with the aim of rooting out defamation and abuse. Despite this lofty ideal, the creation of this unit is actually mere posturing. The members that have been assembled for the team are all officers with idiosyncrasies who have been sidelined, including detective Banjo Wataru. Banjo is a loner who was dropped from the First Investigation Division as a result of some case. The unit figures out who the anonymous criminals are which guides them in solving cases of cyber bullying. One day, a middle-aged couple Sanada Mitsuhiro and Maiko visit Yubitai. Their daughter Kozue was a fashion model who lived alone and committed suicide a few days ago. The police quickly closed the case as it was not criminal in nature. After learning that Kozue was the target of serious defamation on the internet, the Sanadas tearfully ask Yubitai to arrest the trolls whose heartless words drove their daughter to take her own life.
