What is a “FUNOHAN”?
A premeditated criminal act leaving no physical proof -- such as a murder in which the victim appears to be “cursed” or “brainwashed.” In such cases, the act goes unpunished, even if the victim actually dies.
The protagonist, Tadashi Usobuki (Tori Matsuzaka): He manipulates his target with glowing, red eyes that exert a mysterious, mind-controlling power. His “perfect crimes” are impossible to prove.
The heroine, Tomoko Tada (Erika Sawajiri): A female detective committed to justice. She is the only person immune to Usobuki‘s control.
The blockbuster manga “Funohan” (serialized in Shueisha’s Grand Jump Magazine) will be adapted to a live-action film featuring Tori Matsuzaka and Erika Sawajiri. (2018)

A string of unnatural deaths occur in the city. A man in a black suit is always seen at the scene of the crime.

The police are confounded and ready to give up ? all except one female detective named Tomoko Tada. After repeated confrontations with Usobuki, it becomes clear that she is the only person he cannot manipulate.
