It happened a month ago. Someone killed beloved grandfather Kyosuke Jinguji, who was living in New York.

Jake’s reunion with the nostalgic cityscape and his old friends only lasted for a brief moment. He learns that Kyosuke was reading up on the word “Daedalus” until the moment of his death.
What is Daedalus? Why was Kyosuke killed?
