Kohei Nagase, a genius when it comes to makeup and special effects. He uses his skills to expertly disguise people from the press, criminals, or anyone wanting to do them harm.



Never one to let a minor inconvenience like a bullet wound get him down--he caught a little lead while trying to prevent a jewel heist--Kohei doggedly pursues a group of thieves who've been using one of his creations for illicit purposes. Can he spring his buddy Shingo from jail and track down the burglars before more blood--both real and costume--is shed? Later, a major Hollywood star contacts Kohei to help him deal with a fanatical female fan, but with a crooked agent thrown into the mix, Studio Gimmick might also have to foil a blackmail plot.
