Cyber City Oedo 1,2,3 / Tokyo Babylon 1,2 (2-Pack)
Is it possible for one person to be so lucky? Shinji Nagumo seems to lead a charmed life amidst the inherent dangers of building a skyscraper. Unfortunately, everyone around Nagumo has been rather unlucky - fatally so.
It's up to Subaru Sumeragi, the most powerful medium in Japan, to piece together the clues before there's another death. Are the accidents due to just bad luck and random chance, or is it something more sinister at work?
Subaru will have to work fast, because the lucky Mr. Nagumo has made many enemies. And one of them is ready to sacrifice everything to create a creature that will end Nagumo's lucky streak - permanently!
Terror is stalking the subways. Women were once safe, but now each morning's train carries another brutally butchered body. Without a motive, the police are helpless against this psychotic killer.
With nowhere else to turn, Mirei Hidaka, a psychic "postcognative" is called in. Using her sense of touch, Mirei can feel the currents of the past and has the ability to witness murders hours or days after they've been committed. But just as the threads are slowly starting to come together, Mirei's own life is in jeopardy!
It's now up to Subaru Sumeragi, to save the day. But this case won't be solved until the separate strands of destiny have been re-woven into a new pattern - one the binds Subaru, Mirei, and a psychotic murderer.
Cyber City Oedo:
In the year 2808, three criminals are offered a choice: Spend the rest of their lives aboard a maximum-security orbital prison, or return to Earth as agents of the Cyber Police. Parole violations will be rare as each criminal is fitted with a booby trapped, high-explosive collar which operates on a 24-hour timer. If ever a check-in is to be missed, the consequences would be... gruesome. For every criminal caught, the agents receive a "bounty" that reduces their total sentence, so some day they may walk free again.
A member of the Cyber Police has turned traitor and sold confidential police data to a mysterious customer who could destroy the Cyber Police forever. But before that can happen, the heroes have 24 hours to uncover the plot. The trail leads to an illegal black market dealing in stolen body parts. Goggles is reunited with his ex-partner-in-crime, and together, they find themselves face-to-face with MOLCOS, the military's ultimate killing machine.
The Vampire Case. One by one, genetics researchers are turning up dead - all have suspicious fang wounds on their necks. The most recent victim, Ichiro Edanjima, used his own blood to scrawl a cryptic message on the wall and left notes to a very unusual retro-virus on his computer. The trail points to the top of the space elevator, and the cryogenic suspension facility tethered there. But the frozen death of cryogenic may not have any meaning for one of the undead... and vampires can be hungry when they wake up!
