This sets off a series of seemingly random events throwing together multiple protagonists including The Silver Case’s Tokio Morishima. With all viewpoints assembled, a truly shocking pattern emerges…

Story

Details

Three stories, three perspectives, and a case that goes deeper than any of them could imagine.

Violent Crimes Division detective Mokutaro Shiroyabu and his partner Shinko Kuroyanagi are called in to inspect a crime scene at the "Bayside Tower Land" apartment complex in Tokyo's newly-developed 25th Ward. Inside the apartment they find a shocking scene that they can't explain. This sets off a series of seemingly unconnected grisly events that will test these detectives to their very limit.

Veteran detective and survivor of The Silver Case Tokio Morishima awakens on a boat in the 25th Ward. Struggling through partial amnesia, he follows the one lead he still has: an order from a mysterious contact to look into the strange murders occuring in the 25th Ward.

Regional Adjustment Division employees Shinkai Tsuki and Yotaro Osato are tasked by their supervisors to investigate the death of an "un-adjusted" person at the apartment complex.

None of them know where this road will lead them, but only through their journey can you find what lurks in the heart of the 25th Ward.
