Daisuke Kambe, a detective with an extreme amount of personal wealth, is assigned to the Modern Crime Prevention Headquarters, a place where officers who have caused problems for the Metropolitan Police Department are sent.

- Daisuke Kambe (神戸大助, Kanbe Daisuke)
- Voiced by: Yūsuke Ōnuki (Japanese); Adam Rowe (English)
- The current head of the eminently wealthy and influential Kambe family. As a police officer, he uses his fabulous wealth and a collection of the latest technological gadgets to solve crimes in a blunt, straightforward manner, often resorting to outright bribery as his preferred investigative method. He is currently a member of the Modern Crimes Prevention Task Force and frequently works with detective Haru Kato, who is frequently annoyed by Kambe's ways of solving things with money. He also relies heavily on his butler, HEUSC. The scale of his wealth is demonstrated when HEUSC reminds him his balance remains Unlimited. Nonetheless, he carries a surprisingly calm attitude and unnerves in every dangerous situation.
- Haru Katō (加藤春, Katō Haru)
- Voiced by: Mamoru Miyano (Japanese); Ricco Fajardo (English)
- A young detective on the same task force as Kambe Daisuke, though he was previously a Division 1 detective but was forcibly transferred out after an incident embarrassing to the police.

- Shinnosuke Kamei (亀井新之助, Kamei Shinnosuke)
- Voiced by: Kentarō Kumagai (Japanese); Aaron Roberts (English)
- Another member of the task force works only when he wants to and does not particularly enjoy his job. His main goal is to impress Motoyama from Security Division on whom he has a substantial crush. The very mention of her name has a visible effect on his level of enthusiasm.

While working together, she and Kambe are a highly effective team.
- HEUSC (ヒュスク, Hyusuku)
- Voiced by: Kazuyuki Okitsu (Japanese); Jim Foronda (English)
- Described as Kambe's butler who only communicates through Kambe's earpiece and the computer screen in his sunglasses. HEUSC is an advanced Artificial intelligence program that instantly responds to Kambe's requests and can seemingly manipulate other computer systems at will.

They confront Imura, a Mizuo Executive, but are forced to leave when she starts recording them. Daisuke has HEUSC hack Imura’s electric car, forcing her to speed so he could arrest her.

Kato is approached by Takei and Hoshino, his former Division 1 boss and partner, respectively, who are suspicious of Kambe. Nakamoto locates incriminating evidence against Imura’s son that Imura had covered up. Kato tries to talk to Daisuke but is advised to walk away or potentially lose his job. Nakamoto receives a similar warning from their boss, Kiyomizu, about losing his pension. Regardless, Nakamoto uses the evidence against Imura’s son to try forcing her to reveal how Mizuo is linked to the Kamb Group. Kato, unwilling to allow blackmail, has Imura released from custody. Unfortunately, her electric car is hacked again, causing the battery to explode, killing Imura instantly. Nakamoto accuses Daisuke of Imura’s murder. Kato learns from Kiyomizu that the last time Nakamoto investigated Mizuo, it was due to the murder of Sayuri Kambe, Daisuke’s mother.Costs incurred in this episode: ¥269,000,000 (£1,899,993.43, $2,541,824.58, €2,127,588.84)

Nakamoto and Takei investigated the potential murder of Sayuri Kambe by Shigemaru, Daisuke’s father. Nakamoto received no help from the Kambe family and instead stole a photo album from which a witness identified Shigemaru as the murderer. Police Director Saiki, Takei’s now deceased father-in-law, kept a close eye on the investigation. Nakamoto found a locker key in the album marked with the symbol for Adollium, a dangerous material Shigemaru had been researching. Takei located the locker while Nakamoto learned Shigemaru committed suicide, followed by the key being stolen from his desk. With Shigemaru dead and the key being stolen, the investigation was closed. Nakamoto now plans to reopen the case, and Takei labels Daisuke a suspect for Imura’s murder. Kato calls Daisuke, who admits he hacked Imura’s car, angering Kato so much he smashes his car through Daisuke’s front gate. Daisuke insists he is innocent and only interested in solving Sayuri’s murder. Takei is gassed in his vehicle and experiences vivid hallucinations of Imura accusing him of her murder, fearing for his own life if he didn’t sabotage the Sayuri investigation and tricking him into calling Director Saiki. He awakens in Daisuke’s home, the hallucination having been created by an advanced virtual reality headset to trick him into revealing who he was afraid of during the Sayuri investigation, his own father-in-law Director Saiki.Costs incurred in this episode: ¥7,369,000,000 (£52,039,878.00, $69,636,460.48, €58,274,052.00)

Daisuke explains that after Nakamoto accused him of Imura’s murder, he managed to convince him he was only interested in Sayuri’s murder. Nakamoto agrees to hold Takei in Daisuke’s mansion while they find out what Adollium is. Nakamoto explains that he never discovered Shigemaru’s lab's location, and now it no longer even exists in the Kambe Company’s records. Daisuke interrogates his grandmother, but she refuses to talk. Nakamoto infers from Takei’s fear that his father-in-law, Saiki, was murdered to cover something up. Takei has been afraid for his own life ever since. Suzue realizes HEUSC is actively hindering them by deleting information from the company servers. Kato discovers the lab in a Kambe owned mansion in the mountains, and Daisuke decides to infiltrate in secret. At the same time, Kato acts as a decoy outfitted with Suzue’s military gadgets. An intruder enters Daisuke’s house trying to reach Takei, just as Daisuke had hoped, only for the intruder to begin bypassing security using passwords belonging to Shigemaru. HEUSC shuts down Suzue’s supercomputer, and Takei begins to panic while Nakamoto appears unconcerned. Daisuke infiltrates the lab and finds security recordings proving Shigemaru is alive.

Daisuke resigns. Katsuhiro reveals Nakamoto owned two dice that were actually a transmitter and receiver, and he planted the transmitter on Shigemaru. Hoshino arrests Kato. The other members of Modern Crimes manage to avoid the First Division officer monitoring them and locating the transmitter signal while Suzue locates Shigemaru’s car. Kato informs Hoshino of Shigemaru’s survival, but Hoshino accuses Kato of murdering Takei for causing the incident that made him unable to fire his gun. Hoshino later finds Takei’s resignation letter and realizes Kato is telling the truth. Daisuke locates Shigemaru’s car and triggers a nerve gas trap, indicating someone planned to kidnap him. Suzue finds footage of Frantz Weinski, bodyguard to Thomas Matheson, an arms dealer, before HEUSC begins deleting the footage. Modern Crimes realize the transmitter is near Oura Wharf and inform Kato. Suzue sends an email to everyone in the city, offering ¥100,000 to everyone who takes pictures of their surroundings and uses all the photos to locate Shigemaru at Oura Wharf. Kato illegally boards the container ship Shigemaru is on, closely followed by Daisuke in an advanced underwater combat suit. Daisuke fights Weinski.

Kato drops a shipping container between Daisuke and Weinski, allowing them to escape. Weinski refuses to chase Daisuke as his only job is to get the ship to Poliador, so Shigemaru pays him ¥100,000,000 to teach Daisuke a lesson. Suzue scans the vessel and notices the engine is unusually small for such a large ship, so she sends drones after it, narrowly helping them avoid an ambush. Suzue explains that Adollium is somehow powering the ship with zero exhaust emissions. Daisuke heads for the engine while Kato tricks Weinski by pretending to have fallen overboard. Reaching the engine, Suzue theorizes Adollium creates energy from seawater and could provide the world an unlimited supply of electricity or be turned into a weapon. Daisuke begins sabotaging the engine, but Weinski appears and stops him. Kato also arrives and tries to shoot Weinski but hesitates again until Daisuke encourages him to stop being a civil servant and be a detective. Kato finally shoots his gun, destroying the engine. Daisuke’s suit reactivates, and he defeats Weinski. Daisuke starts to arrest Shigemaru for murdering Takei and Nakamoto. Resisting the arrest, Shigemaru orders HEUSC to incapacitate Daisuke with the ship's laser cannons. As Shigemaru escapes, Daisuke and Kato deliver Weinski and his men to Hoshino, who is happy to see Kato appears to have returned to his old self. Daisuke and Kato thoroughly destroy the ship to hide the Adollium before tracking Shigemaru to the mountains' lab.Costs incurred in this episode: ¥40,000,000,000 (£296,161,636.00, $382,537,200.00 €323,097,000.00)

Daisuke discovers the data on Adollium in the lab while Kato finds an underground train leading to Daisuke’s mansion. Daisuke hands the data to Suzue before confronting his father, whose real identity is his grandmother’s butler, Hattori, who disguised himself as Shigemaru to deceive Daisuke. Daisuke encounters his grandmother, Kikuko, who admits she wanted to keep Adollium as a family secret so they could profit from it. Daisuke’s mother, Sayuri, wanted to broadcast Adollium's existence to the public, so Kikuko had Hattori assassinate her and, for years, has kept Shigemaru prisoner. Kato tried to catch Hattori, but the butler resisted; he then shot the policeman in the thigh. However, the wound is nothing comparable to the butler's severe injuries. The young police finally managed to catch Hattori, armed with the knowledge that the servant had orders not to kill Kato and the critical injuries he still suffered. Daisuke almost orders Suzue to release the data publicly but hesitates when Kikuko points out that Adollium could be used to create weapons of mass destruction. Kato, bleeding heavily, trips onto Suzue’s computer and accidentally releases the data anyway. Amused at the result, Daisuke arrests Kikuko. Two weeks later, a recovering Kato refuses an offer to return to First Division, preferring Modern Crimes, while Daisuke helps Shigemaru begin recovering. Modern Crimes become much more efficient after Daksuke gives them HEUSC. Meanwhile, with Adollium now becoming public, it changes the world dramatically. It even starts appearing on the black market with Daisuke and Kato working to prevent its power abuse. Stopping another black market meeting, Kato ends up once more falling into the river as an amused Daisuke watches, just like the first time they met.Costs incurred in this episode: Unlimited.
