From 12.00 a.m., Saturdays, 25 June – 30 July 2022
Police bureaucrat Kohiruimaki Yuichi, talented scientist Mogami Yukiko and veteran detective Hasebe Tsutomu from the Scientific Crime Investigation Unit come face to face with the first in a series of completely new cases involving genome editing, cloning, the science of immortality and cryonics created by cutting edge science when a traffic warden named Bessho who was once a juvenile offender suddenly gets violent. Right after brutally murdering five people with superhuman strength, an incident occurs where he seemingly dies from using up all his strength. Six months earlier, Bessho received a vaccine from a doctor who is actually Yukiko’s mentor and also a researcher belonging to multinational technology company Lyden Group’s research institute. Pulling the strings behind the scenes is Lyden Group, a plan that is a state secret and the forbidden concept of immortality. With the arrival of this new enemy, the Scientific Crime Investigation Unit has to prepare for the ultimate battle. The scheme of Sawada Katsuya, the senior manager of Lyden Group’s Japanese branch, and shadiness of Tsubaki Bunji, an adviser formerly from the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare get exposed. Kohiruimaki’s junior Saegusa Masuo at the ministry also stands up to the corruption happening at a national level. What is the real aim of Body Hacker’s enigmatic Carl Kahn who has been maneuvering in secret?
