Story

“Mysterious Lady” Sana maintains unworldly powers and a beautiful appearance. One day she suddenly appears into modern day Japan. As the story progresses, it is revealed that she is actually a female ninja who worked for a warlord in the Sengoku period and that she traveled through time to 2014 when she experienced an explosion during a battle.

The story begins in a town where mysterious reticent woman with a large wound on her back suddenly appears. Her name is Sana (Yuriko Ono) and she seems to have received some kind of military training as she is extraordinarily strong. However, she opens up to no one and her past or identity remains unknown. Masako Murata (Pinko Izumi) unexpectedly meets Sana on the streets and takes her home to take care of her. When she finds out about Sana’s special abilities, she tries to solve crime related incidents like domestic violence and bank transfer scams by having Sana step in.

There is a reason why Masako does not trust the police and cannot neglect suffering victims. 24 years ago, her sister Yukari who was 17 at the time went missing. The police did little to search for her and the case remains unresolved. Sana had been living in despair, shutting out all outside influences, but as she begins to solve modern day issues with Masako, she gradually starts to question her existence. Where did I come from and why am I here? By trying to find the answers and being touched by people’s hearts, Sana regains her desire to live. As long as there are people in the world, evil prevails. Why? Because peoples’ desires are the true identity of evil…
