Synopsis for Tantei wa Mou, Shindeiru
Kimizuka Kimihiko is a crisis magnet. From getting caught at a crime scene to accidentally witnessing a drug deal, trouble seems to find you around every corner. So it’s no wonder his rather mundane flight suddenly enters a state of emergency with a dire need for a detective on board. Unfortunately, his attempt to avoid trouble is foiled by a beautiful silver-haired girl who goes by the code name Siesta. Declaring herself a detective, she unceremoniously drags Kimizuka onto the case as her assistant.
That incident marked the beginning of an adventure around the world that was beyond his wildest imagination. Putting their lives on the line, the two brought down criminal organizations, prevented disasters, and saved thousands. But the curtain closed on her epic journey with Siesta’s untimely death three years later. This time, determined to live a normal life in high school, Kimizuka spends a year keeping a low profile. However, as fate would have it, a girl with an uncanny resemblance to Siesta crashes into his life, threatening to ruin his days of peace.
