Plot Concept: The story focuses on Kimihiko Kimizuka, a third-year high school student and former assistant of a detective named Siesta. He made Siesta’s acquaintance three years ago, 10,000 meters above the ground in a hijacked plane. The two went on one death-defying adventure after another for three years that eventually ended with Siesta’s untimely death. Left alone, Kimihiko tries his best to reintegrate himself back into a normal life.
