15 years ago, an unknown hyperspace "gate" appeared on the Pacific Ocean, and the gate connects
to a mysterious another world "Leto Semani" where fairies and goblins live.
Now more than two million immigrants from both worlds are living in Sun Teresa City. Various races
and colorful culture, and people who have and have-not. This is the world's newest "Dream Street."
However, many crimes are wiggling in the shadow of the chaos: drug, prostitution, and weapons trafficking.
There are detectives who stand up for those heinous crimes at the Sun Teresa City Police. Officer Kei
Matoba Kay and Tiana, the knight from the another world, are different in gender, personality, and the
worlds they were born. When the two meet, the case happens. Two worlds, two justice, and beyond
that--. A buddy police action begins!
