Bienvenue au La Carneval!

La Carneval is a Western-themed restaurant in Japan. Its menu includes coffee, luxury carbonated water from France, and their signature beefsteaks. Said beefsteaks are made of veal and grilled on an iron plate. The restaurant was the scene of a murder.


La Carneval customers were usually rich patrons. However, a sergeant in the Imperial Army named Iyesa Nosa went to the restaurant every three days to steal from those patrons in order provide for his son. He would avoid having to pay for cutlery by simply biting directly into his food in a barbaric fashion. These thefts were reported to the police who sent detective Satoru Hosonaga undercover as a waiter to investigate.

Main article: The Adventure of the Great Departure

Kazuma Asogi

One day, an antique dealer and frequent customer named Kyurio Korekuta sat with Nosa, they both ordered a beefsteaks. Other customers were Ryunosuke Naruhodo with Kazuma Asogi and John Wilson with Jezaille Brett, the latter two were from England. Wilson only ordered carbonated water because he just had a tooth extracted and Brett also ordered a beefsteak. Naruhodo and Asogi both ordered coffee, they were talking about how Asogi was just about to go on his trip to England so he can change the judicial system.

Naruhodo and Wilson talking

After Asogi left, Naruhodo decided to introduce himself to Dr. Wilson. Unknown to the two men, Brett was intending to kill the doctor by putting curare (a paralyzing poison not known in Japan) in his water. She intended to quickly leave before he died and the beefsteak was to make it look like he was dining alone. But when Naruhodo came, a huge conversation erupted preventing Brett from leaving. By the time the curare kicked in, John Wilson started to fall, he also got a bull-shaped burn mark on his wrist from the hot plate. Brett used the chair to prevent his body from falling over while Naruhodo went back to his table to finish his coffee.

Jezail Brett then got the idea of framing Naruhodo, so she dropped Wilson's self-defense pistol on the floor and hid. When Naruhodo was leaving, he noticed the pistol on the floor and decided to give it to Wilson. Korekuta was looking for his koban under the table which Nosa, looking at his steak, hid in his pocket. As Satoru Hosonaga was cleaning utensils in the kitchen, Brett fired her own gun and everyone heard the echoing shot, blood got on Brett's plate. Hosonaga locked Naruhodo in the kitchen storeroom, during which Brett rotated Wilson's chair to have his back face the table. Iyesa Nosa was afraid the police would search his pockets when he was called as a witness to the murder. So he hid Korekuta's koban under his beefsteak and swapped the plate with Brett's.

Three days afterwards, the crimes of both Brett and Nosa have been brought to light. Hosonaga invites Naruhodo, Asogi, Susato Mikotoba and her father Yujin, to La Carneval to celebrate.
