Despite endless research, the human mind remains a mystery to this day. Unknown to the public, there exist special individuals who are able to dive deep into the minds of people and even manipulate their memories.

Gifted with this ability, Hiroki, Tsukasa, and Satoru are among those who use their power to commit crime under the orders of their leader, Katsuragi. The three step into the dangerous territory of the human mind in order to destroy their assigned targets while striving to keep their own minds and memories safe.

Characters such as Mei Ling are not explained what her power is.
One episode they may seem to be good, the next episode seem to be bad (Tsukasa and Katsuragi).
It’s confusing because we do not even know who the main character is/are. What is the ...
