Summary of Tantei wa Mou, Shindeiru

Kimizuka Kimihiko is a crisis magnet. From being caught at a crime scene to accidentally witnessing a drug deal, trouble seems to be around every corner. So it's no wonder that your rather mundane flight suddenly falls into a state of emergency and urgently needs a detective on board. Unfortunately, his attempt to avoid trouble is thwarted by a beautiful silver-haired girl who goes by the name of Siesta. She declares herself a detective and unceremoniously pulls Kimizuka into the case as her assistant.

This incident marked the beginning of an adventure around the world that was beyond his wildest imagination. The two risked their lives, brought down criminal organizations, prevented disasters and saved thousands. But the curtain closed on his 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 holding back. However, according to fate, a girl with an uncanny resemblance to siesta rushes into his life and threatens to ruin his days of peace.
