Nemesis (2021): Plot
Nemesis follows the lives of Kazama Naoki. He is a brilliant detective who works at a private detective firm called Nemesis in the city of Yokohama. He is often compared to the prodigal fictional character – Sherlock Holmes. There have hardly been any difficult cases that Kazama Naoki has been unable to solve – he gets them all. However, the character of Naoki’s assistant Mikami Anna is very interesting. It turns out that perhaps it is her who solves all the cases with her own genius giftedness of deduction.
It has been a while since Mikami Anna’s lost her father. Don’t be mistaken, because he is not dead. He just went missing abruptly. By profession, he was a scientist. The detective-assistant duo of Kazama Naoki and Mikami Anna get caught up in this investigation of getting Anna’s father back. The owner of Nemesis, Kurita Kazuaki, also joins the two of them to draw clues of the investigation. Kurita was a good friend of Anna’s father – Hajime.
The three of them have not put their lives on hold for this one case. They involve themselves in solving several other difficult cases. As they reach the conclusion of each of these difficult cases, they find several hints to Hajime’s disappearance. They also discover a 20-year old incident that also played a major role in the old man being missing. The show takes an interesting turn when it is realized that Kazama Naoki and Kurita Kazuaki are also involved in this incident from 20 years back. What is even more surprising is that Mikami has no idea about their participation. It will indeed be interesting to see how they clear this mess out, how Miyaki reacts when she finds out about their involvement and where exactly Hajime is and what he has been up to.
