Whereas the first season focuses more on Yamada Naoko and especially the story of her father, the second season is fully dedicated to solve tricky cases for which Yamada Naoko becomes more and more the key element . Unfortunately, we don't progress in the knowledge of the characters. The romantic aspects developed in the first season are not used anymore. And in a sense, we don't really understand why Ueda still needs to contact Naoko each time he faces a difficulty. Despite this fact, Trick 2 presents the most interesting cases of all seasons. The stories are highly innovative and we get stucked to these clever cases.

Ueda, Naoko, Yabe Kenzo and his partner Akiba are back in a new Trick special. Ueda Jiro is summoned to investigate serial killings that are likely to happen again during a festival to take place in a small village in Okayama. The victims are persons who took an oath under a local tradition but were dumped by their partners afterwards. The festival is marked by the return to the village of a strange woman by the name of Higashizaki Ayano, who had left 20 years ago after the death of her husband and son. The Saionji family, which is the most influential in the city, dislikes the fact.
Ueda Jiro and his 3776th assistant Yamada Naoko are invited to witness the will of the last head of the Mizukami family, who died recently, being read out. The will, much to the disappointment of the Mizukami family members, gave out paltry sums of inheritance. However, it also claims that in a box that comes with the will, lies a hint to a treasure worth billions of yen. However, the catch is that the box is said to be cursed, and whoever opens it without a pure heart will die. True to the words, murders and deaths start occurring among the heirs.
