The Faceless Body | New episodes out this week

In Bullet Catcher, Imma finally gets the history lesson she always wanted. Also this week, the much anticipated Ninth Step Station debuts. In a city divided by war, a Tokyo cop and a US peacekeeper are brought together by murder, missing guns, and politics way above their pay grades.

Bullet Catcher

In the desert, you can bend. You can splinter. But you can’t break. Not if you want to be free.

Immaculada Amaya Moreno has no kind of life in no kind of town. Her parents are dead, her brother probably is too. When a stranger arrives, a stranger who can bend bullets to his will, she figures she has nothing to lose. So like a cobalt shadow cast in the sand, she follows him into the wastes. She’s hoping to find answers, purpose, maybe even some kind of life. What she finds will change not only her life, but her whole world.

Episode 11: Rites by Joaquin Lowe

Trust is a tricky thing. All at once, with a flash of inspiration, Imma saved the Bullet Catcher and gained Bullet’s admiration and his’s right-hand man’s enmity. As for the Bullet Catcher, well. How can she trust a man who lied to her, not only about her brother, but about her own parents? About how he was there the night they died? But the lies hid this truth: he was the one who snuck Imma and Nikko off to an orphanage. The one who saved them from an ideology that wanted them dead. The real truth is, no one in the Southlands has done right every day of their lives. The real question is, who is doing right now?

Ninth Step Station

Years of disaster and conflict have left Tokyo split between great powers.

In the city of drone-enforced borders, bodymod black markets, and desperate resistance movements, US peacekeeper Emma Higashi is assigned to partner with Tokyo Metropolitan Police Detective Miyako Koreda.

Together, they must race to solve a series of murders that test their relationship and threaten to overturn the balance of global power. And amid the chaos, they each need to decide what they are willing to do for peace.

Episode 1: The Faceless Body by Malka Older

Miyako Koreda and Emma Higashi don’t want to work together. But the Tokyo detective and US peacekeeper’s bosses have given them little choice. Politicians never do. Shattered by an earthquake and a brief but brutal invasion by China, Tokyo is technically a city at peace. But there’s a body full of holes on a subway platform and a shipment of guns hijacked by mobsters with katanas, and Miyako and Emma don’t have time for politics. They have a city to protect.
