About Criminologist Himura and Mystery Writer Arisugawa
Can crime ever be considered beautiful or fascinating?
Criminologist Hideo Himura (Takumi Saito) is obsessed with crime scenes, going so far as to declare that he has ever wanted to kill a person and dedicating himself to the search for the perfect crime. He is accompanied on his crime-solving journeys by his friend, the somewhat unreliable mystery writer Arisugawa Arisu (Masataka Kubota), whose observations and inferences can be completely off the mark at times. Together, this unlikely pair makes up for each other’s shortcomings as they attempt to unravel the elaborate tricks left behind by criminals!
