Synopsis of Tantei wa Mou, Shindeiru

The story follows Kimihiko Kimitsuka, a young man who four years ago became the assistant to a mysterious detective named "Siesta" during a plane hijacking. Together, Kimihiko and Siesta went on breathtaking adventures and explored the world while battling a secret organization, but it all ended when Siesta died.

Currently, Kimihiko is trying to return to an ordinary and boring life as a student, but things will never be that simple, even though the detective is already dead. How will it go on now?
