Maia Mizuki has just had all of her hopes and dreams shattered. Not only did she fail her entrance exam to the Ocean Agency, a prestigious marine law enforcement agency, but she’s also been left penniless, homeless, and alone. She soon finds herself caught in a gun fight between two scantily clad women and a pair of bank robbers. The women are from Nereids, a private detective agency that will do anything if the price is right. One thing leads to another and Maia takes a job working for Nereids, where she"ll receive room and board. Her jobs range from collecting rent to saving pets to capturing criminals. Now she just has to balance her life of "fighting crime" with her dream of one day being a part of the Ocean agency!
