It has been one year since Associate Professor Takatsuki Akira and his student Fukamachi Naoya, who can see through people’s lies, began pursuing cases of mysterious phenomenon. One day, Terauchi Hajime, a freelance photographer with dyed blonde hair, visits Takatsuki’s office. He asks Takatsuki to look into the Okutama miracle girl known as Mana-sama who survived a plunging bus. He wants to know whether his mother has been deceived by Mana-sama whom she blindly believes. Takatsuki feels something is odd about Terauchi’s words and actions and starts investigating the matter with Ubukata Ruiko and Naoya. When the trio head to the accident site, they meet an eyewitness. This leads them to the house of Kariya Mana and her mother Makiko. But in the process of carrying out this investigation, Takatsuki’s past comes up and then Terauchi’s true motive is revealed.
