Character Introductions: Master Detectives Dispatched to Kanai Ward
- Japanese VA: Yui Horie
- English VA: Lindsay Sheppard
Despite her child-like appearance, she has machine-like composure and mental processing speed. Perhaps because she avoids communication, she sometimes shows awkward reactions and intense displays of emotion during conversation.
Forensic Forte: Audial Aptitude
By concentrating, whispers, footsteps, and even heartbeats can be heard from far away.
- Japanese VA: Saori Onishi
- English VA: Xanthe Huynh
Because of her upbringing as a lady of the world-famous Clockford Family, she is a bit naive. She has a uniquely peculiar way of thinking, which can frustrate and confuse the people she talks to.
Forensic Forte: Time Leap
Time can be rewound and things can be redone. After time has been turned back once, it cannot be turned back beyond that point, however.
- Japanese VA: Yukari Tamura
- English VA: Lauren Landa
A glamorous woman with a keen intellect behind her flamboyant appearance. She’s a fashionista whose mind is often focused on clothes. She’s quick to like anyone with a body type that would suit her favorite outfits.
Forensic Forte: Spiritism
One’s own body is used as a medium to summon the soul of a deceased person. In order to use this ability, she must wear the clothes the deceased wore in life. Character Introduction: Head of the Nocturnal Detective Agency
- Japanese VA: Takehito Koyasu
- English VA: Kaiji Tang
Head of the only agency in Kanai Ward, the Nocturnal Detective Agency. An aloof and elusive man. Although not a Master Detective, he is certified by the World Detective Organization, which suggests he is an excellent detective.
That said, he is somewhat weak-kneed, and his agency’s policy is to stay quiet and refrain from any overt behavior that might lead to conflict with the Amaterasu Corporation Peacekeepers.
It deals in a wide variety of goods such as industrial products, electronic appliances, and pharmaceuticals, all of which can be found across all aspects of daily life. On the other hand, many dark rumors surround the company, leading to a saying among detectives: “Kick it and the dust comes off like a wall of smoke.” Despite that, both the government and the World Detective Organization have been unable to intervene because of its great influence.
