Media Factory have published the series since November 2019 under their MF Bunko J imprint. A manga adaptation with art by Mugiko has been serialized in Media Factory's seinen manga magazine Monthly Comic Alive since May 2020.

Premise[edit]

Ever since he was a child, Kimihiko Kimizuka has attracted trouble. According to him, he was born with a condition that naturally attracts him to troublesome situations, such as being forced to join a flash mob while taking a leisurely walk, accidentally stumbling across an underworld transaction between drug dealers, and being at the site of crime scenes often enough to sometimes be considered a suspect.

One particular day in his third year of junior high, he was kidnapped and forced to carry a suitcase onto an international flight; on that flight, he met Siesta, a woman who proclaims herself to be a "legendary detective". Forcefully made into her sidekick, Kimihiko helped her stop the plane from being hijacked, but not before Kimihiko discovered the existence of underworld organizations. After being constantly pestered, Kimihiko agrees to be Siesta's sidekick and for three years, they worked together, finding and solving an innumerable number of cases.

Now in his last year of senior high, Kimihiko is once again confronted by the ghosts of the past as he tries to solve new cases that fall into his lap. He is extremely bothered by the fact that he is called a detective; after all, the detective is already dead.

Characters[edit]

Kimihiko Kimizuka (君塚 君彦, Kimizuka Kimihiko)
Voiced by: Arata Nagai[3] (Japanese); Austin Tindle[4] (English)
An 18-year-old high school student with a talent to attract criminals so that in his past he often witnessed various crimes and was even later questioned by the police as a suspect himself. This talent, which he himself calls a "trouble magnet", apparently also led to his encounter with the master detective Siesta, who wanted to recruit him as her assistant, which he initially refused due to his characteristic of always ending up in unpleasant situations. Author Nigojū initially planned to give him the alias "Kurokage" when creating the series of novels.[5]
Siesta (シエスタ, Shiesuta)
Voiced by: Saki Miyashita[3] (Japanese); Xanthe Huynh[4] (English)

Voiced by: Kanon Takao[3] (Japanese); Jad Saxton[4] (English)
A middle school girl who is already a successful idol at the age of 14 and regularly appears in magazines or commercials. She hires Kimihiko and Nagisa to protect her and an heirloom from a thief. Although Yui is the youngest character in the novel series at 14, she is considered the most adult character.
