After returning from a field trip, Yoshikazu Miyano—along with his friends—is ready to take over the Discipline Committee. But when a student loses their keychain, the now former chairman Masato Hanzawa uses this opportunity to create the First Lost Item Detective Squad in order to find the misplaced belonging.

Amidst all this, Shuumei Sasaki is trying to determine how to define his relationship with Miyano going forward. Hoping to be helpful to Miyano, he joins the search party. Yet, even with Sasaki on board, the investigation remains unsuccessful. The group must continue to look everywhere and solve the mystery surrounding the keychain soon—as they discover that many more items have gone missing.

This could have been better .. But as a BL fan, I'm still grateful we ...

This is your average OVA with your average filler story. It' a side story with no bearing on the overal plot progress, there's no depth other than just being a stand-alone short story and no depth is really expected. This is mainly for people who just want *any* additional content with the characters they like.

The character design, especially for the main characters, makes them look somehow ET-ish, though that is not fault of the OVA alone. Other than that, the visuals are okay, about to be expected with the tighter budget of an OVA.

But hey, the cat was cute, so at least there's ...
