Gimmick!, Vol. 5

Youzaburou Kanari

Like Scooby Doo meets Nip/Tuck

Trouble with the wrong side of the law? Paparazzi won't leave you alone? Found yourself in a tight spot and you don't know where to go? Then it's time to get in touch with Kohei Nagase and his friends at Studio Gimmick. A prodigy in the realm of makeup and special effects, Kohei has got the skills to make sure that the people you don't want recognizing you won't.

A devious diet food company, whose products actually cause significantly more harm than good, dupes Kohei into disguising one of their models so she appears normal. But this isn't the first time Kohei's special skills have been abused. Back in his Hollywood days, a nefarious game company made the naive makeup genius work on a project that had a life-altering influence on all those involved in it. Is Kohei destined for a repeat performance of that emotionally scarring incident?
