Alternate Title

イングレス

Synopsis

Ever since he was little, Makoto has possessed a strange ability - he can read the memories of the objects he has touched. Keeping his powers a secret, Makoto now works as a special agent with the police force. When he’s sent to investigate the crime scene of an explosion at a laboratory where research into a mysterious substance known as XM was being conducted, Makoto discovers a strange memory embedded in the ring of a young woman, Sarah, who is the accident’s sole survivor. The memory is of a person being swallowed by a red light and disappearing. Makoto suddenly finds himself at the center of a vast conspiracy as he tries to ensure the secrets of XM remain in the right hands…
