Nagisa is a police detective who is highly regarded as being one of the best detectives for the Tokyo Police Department. Even though his first name is feminine, Nagisa doesn't allow this to get in the way of his work and anyone who dares to mock him about it will instantly and immediately feel his unforgiving wrath. Strong yet silent, Nagisa is also a part-time member of Interpol, serving on most of their high-profile cases.

One day, Nagisa's supervisors inform him that a mysterious yet threatening organization known only as the Soshiki is engaging in suspicious activity and that they soon assign him to the case, to which he gladly accepts. At the same time, Nagisa is also paired up with a New York police officer named Tracy, who doesn't exactly get along with Nagisa during the first step of their investigation and even though the two of them argue with each other during the events of the third Toshindaibukai, both Nagisa and Tracy are soon able to eventually work out and put aside their own differences with one another so that they can fully and truly work together as a unified team in order to stop Abel and his loyal followers from carrying out their nefarious plans.

In the end, Nagisa is successful in helping Eiji Shinjo and the other Toshinden fighters destroy the Soshiki and he is given high commendations and rewards by both Interpol and Tokyo PD.
