Solve a brutal crime… Never! And avoid risk at all costs. Why? Because it's not worth the time and effort.
Introducing a detective drama for the new Reiwa era featuring two hot detectives who are the most passive you'll ever see in a detective series. They never solve any crimes, yet they're super COOL. It's a police story with absolutely no sense of danger!
Showa-era detectives were passionate.
Heisei-era detectives at least worked hard for the public good.
But... Reiwa-era detectives have little interest in their jobs.
They fight only for their own future and peace.
Millennials with 100-year life expectancies don't take risks.
One won't investigate cases, instead studying for promotion exams and kissing up to his bosses.
One uses his charm to get through life with ease as he searches for another career path.
They play it safe and make no waves.
Yet these two keep getting embroiled in criminal cases…?!
In a cool and stylish manner, this police story portrays the slack-off lives of these two harmless detectives!
Who would you spend the end of the world with?
The story is set in Japan in the near future, when the world is waiting for a giant comet that will destroy all life on Earth in six months. Life with the seemingly average Kadokura family appears not to have changed at all. They figure if they’re all going to die together in six months, they may as well spend their remaining time with family. But then Kumiko, mother and housewife of the Kadokura family makes an announcement. “I’m sorry to say such a thing at a time like this, but there’s someone that I love. I want to live with them. It’s not my family that I want to be with on the Earth’s final day.” Her family is astonished, but no one can stop her now. Kumiko brushes away their pleas to stay, and leaves her home with a simple “I’m sorry.” Her family is left behind in shock.
Is there any point in going to work anymore? Or should we keep working hard until the end? What is money even worth now…? In the midst of all this doubt, there are frequent stoppages of water and electricity, and with gasoline growing scarce, the base fare for a taxi ride jumps up to 12,000 yen!! Waves of panic swell higher and higher.
When the end is in sight, we want to live true to ourselves, no matter how far from “normal” that may be. As the time limit draws near, the scars, conflicts, hopes, and sorrows of family members and neighbors are revealed oneby one.
No one dies in this story, nor does anyone’s personality completely collapse. It’s an exciting and spectacular home drama, full of tears and laughter, about the end of the world!

Where will the sorrowful love between the father of a victim and the mother of a murderer go, after it heads towards a catastrophic dark precipice?
This is a story of a collapse and the restoration of a victim’s family, and the family of the murderer involved in the same incident.
When Kyoichiro Shikata returns home, he receives the news, that his 14-year old son had been stabbed to death. It turns out that the assailant is a 13-year old classmate of the victim. However, due to juvenile law reforms, children under the age of fourteen, are not legally allowed to be punished in a way appropriate for their crimes.
Kyoichiro gets blamed, due to the fact that he was an workaholic, and is labeled as a savage for expressing his fury towards the 13-year old boy who murdered his son. After losing his job, friends, and his own family, who has turned their back on him, the only thing keeping this father alive, is his desire to avenge his son’s death. He possesses feelings of a great hatred towards the young murderer, who is protected by a juvenile law, despite committing a heinous crime, and also towards the mother who raised him.
But fate is ironic. Kyoichiro’s feelings are deeply swayed, upon realizing the fact that the murderer’s mother is also lonely. These two parents, who both went through horrendous ordeals, are desperate for a temporary relief, from the heavy burden they both bear, and eventually begins to grow close to one another...
