This department which uses Kagami’s unscientific and unproven flashbacks to deal with unusual crimes and conducts investigations that cannot be disclosed to the public, is a top secret organisation even within the Tokyo Metropolitan Police. Because of that, it is hidden in one of the rooms of the archaeological institute that Kagami used to be in. However, Kagami who does not obey the organisation and carries out investigations based on gut instinct, is a great danger … … HIDE is given an order by the police commissioner to add a new investigator who is skilled in the use of science based on evidence.
