Fugou Keiji Balance: Unlimited Wiki

A golden key can open any door (金で開かない扉はない Kin de akanai tobira wanai) is the ninth episode of Fugou Keiji Balance: Unlimited.


Even after those people were murdered, Daisuke claims that this incident is an internal problem of the Kambe family. The rift between Daisuke and Kato has become so serious that they decide to go their separate ways. However, Kato is apprehended by the First Investigation Division as a material witness. The remaining members of the Modern Crime Prevention Task Force follow the clues about the suspect that Cho-san left behind. Suzue claims to have seen the actual suspect inside the Kambe residence, and clearly states that it was none other than Shigemaru Kambe.

The following is taken from Gizmodo Japan's ASV article.

The Active Support Veil (アクティブ・サポート・ベール Akutibu Sapōto Bēru)[1], or ASV, is an armor-like gadget worn by Daisuke to infiltrate the cargo ship. It takes the appearance of a spray-on high-tech black bodysuit that radiates purple energy in active areas and can be used to improve the user's physical capabilities. Although the suit is thin like a veil, it is designed with material and equipment that greatly enhances defense and attack power.

Some of the ASV's features include:

  • Increased defensive capabilities.
  • Increased attack power (with physical function support).
  • Optical camouflage.

Although it may appear to be a complex gadget, its functions can be realized using already existing technologies (such as micro/nanorobotics, magnetic levitation, and EMS).
