A call from their dead friend, Asumi, has changed the lives of Shuta, Koki and Ran. Besides activating the special powers in the remaining friends, the phone call has also left Shuta hopeful that Asumi might still be alive.

The showrunners have released the official preview trailer of "Tokyo 24th Ward" Episode 2, hinting that viewers would get to know more about Shuta, Ran, Koki and Asumi's childhood days.

The trailer also reveals the trio will investigate the call and try to find out if the caller is indeed their dead friend or someone else. The post-credit scene of Episode 1 shows Shuta and Koki arguing if Asumi is dead.

Shuta knows Asumi is alive while Koki tells him he should get a grip and move on.
