Characters & Voice Actors List

Keith Kazuma Flick

Voice Actor: Hiroaki Hirata

Keith belongs to a special crimes investigation unit and is a legendary investigator of RIS. Due to a past event, he has been able to use it as a way to distance himself from the current division. Those close to Keith call him ‘Geni’ (genius), and just as the name suggests, he is a genius at mathematics and has professional filing abilities. Normally, his expression rests on the wrinkle created by the furrowing of his brows, and Keith’s ability to take in everything clearly while not letting his guard down is excellent. Along with his fellow RIS members, they follow up on the serial killings related to Killer B while attempting to pull back the covers on another incident that happened over 8 years ago. However, just exactly how are these two different cases related…?


Voice Actor: Yuuki Kaji

Koku is a young boy who is a skilled craftsman who works at Lily’s family’s violin workshop. Saying that the purpose of him living in Cremona is that he is searching for someone.

Finally, Koku has found a clue to help him search for his person, but this leads to his path crossing with the Killer B incident that Keith is investigating.
