Deep in the basement of a skyscraper in Shinjuku city is an exorcist detective agency named Phantom Quest Corporation. Gathered there are a group of people with psychic abilities to detect ghosts. The owner of the company is Ayaka Kisagiri, a shapely woman with taste in designer clothing. What's going on at Phantom Quest Corp. this time? A confidential mission has been assigned from the Transylvanian ambassador in Japan to Phantom Quest Corp. Dracula's casket, classified as a national treasure, has been found empty. Recent strange murders are believed to have been committed by the ressurected vampire. Ayaka's inseparable companion, assistant police inspector Karino, asks her to investigate the slayings. She jumps at the opportunity immediately. According to Suimei, the fortune teller, the next target will be Makiko. As twilight falls, Ayaka sets watch over her and finally, Dracula appears. Ayaka chases the vampire, but loses him in the night. While chasing the monster, Ayaka finds a cafe that resembles an old European castle. It is called "Tea Room Transylvania."
