The story follows the incredibly wealthy Daisuke Kanbe (神戸大助) who audaciously solves cases in unconventional ways. Though the original novel is set in the 1970s, the anime moves the setting into the modern day. Kanbe is assigned to the “Modern Crimes Task Unit” — a unit created to keep problematic officers away from others. There, Kanbe becomes partners with Katō Haru (加藤 春).
