The story of Tantei wa mou, Shindeiru. follows Kimihiko Kimitsuka, a young man who four years ago became the assistant of a mysterious detective known as “Siesta” on a hijacked airplane. Together, Kimihiko and Siesta went on mind-boggling, globe-trotting adventures while combatting a secret organization. But all of that came to an end when they were separated by Siesta’s death. In the present day, Kimihiko tries to return to an ordinary, boring life as a high school student. But things are never that simple, even though the detective is already dead.
Nigojuu began the light novel in 2019, and the art is drawn by Umibouzu. There are currently 4 volumes, and the anime is set to cover the Reminiscence Chapter arc, which means the first 3 volumes.
