Trace (Tentative)

Case after case unfold in this crime scene investigation drama… To what truth do the small traces left at a crime scene point to? This forensic research suspense ride prides itself on realism, inspired by true events and experiences.

Reiji is a forensic investigator with a gruesome past that hangs over him like a shadow. Reiji believes that it is only the results of an examination that paint the picture of the truth, and he distinguishes himself from his colleagues by always keeping a cool head. Devoid of ego and never relying on speculation, he only believes that which can be proven by the results of a forensic investigation, nothing more, mercilessly refuting even detectives. Searching for tiny fragments of the truth buried away in darkness, Reiji is able to shed light on the thoughts and regrets of the departed. His partners, however, couldn’t be any more different than Reiji, though. The new forensic investigator Nonna who has just taken her first step into the world of crime scene investigation without any particular motivation either, and the veteran Detective Toramaru, who uses his intuition, sharpened over many years on the force, and pursues criminals with a fierce passion until he arrests them. This strange trio are polar opposites when it comes to age and background, but they form the perfect team to take on the most difficult cases!
