In Japan, taxis come equipped with karaoke machines for the entertainment of the passengers. One night a drunken Ayaka belts out enka, a type of sentimental ballad, as she is shuttled through the city streets. Suddenly, Ayaka senses danger in the air. She grabs the driver's steering wheel, and escapes disaster. Unfortunately, the autos behind her pile up one by one in a a multi-car wreck. The next morning Ayaka and Mamoru go to the hospital to visit Mr. Sano, the taxi driver, who suffered a minor shoulder injury. They learn that Mr. Sano has passed away. Ayaka becomes suspicious when she witnesses a scar disappear from Mr. Sano's body. Remembering Suimei's prediction, Ayaka is convinced that the devil is behind this. Somone has made a pact with the devil and is secretly responsible for his death. Now, the performance of the Phantom Quest Corp. operation begins, with Ayaka, her two helpers, Rokkon and Namami and Karino.
