☆ Comment

(Yamashita Tomohisa)

A work that peruses a person's heart not just in cases, even if I am sufficiently certified naturally in science. Since I have my eyes fixed on a person's heart, crossing over gender and generation, I think there is something that can be transmitted to the heart of anyone. In that, the team power in solving the cases together with my assistants, I want to carefully depict the balance of this 3: human love, small defeats the big, "protecting the weak." Please look forward to it.

(Mangaka Acato Ao)
When I heard that Yamashita-san will be playing Himokura, I was honestly happy. His appearance is beautiful, I thought Himokura's web hair suits him, for some reason, the aura also is similar to him, I looked forward to his Himokura. When I've actually met Yamashita-san in a white robe with a robot hand, the degree of perfection was high and I was moved. When I was able to speak with him, as a person, he's overflowing with charm. I thought at that time, it was great Yamashita-san is playing Himokura that I looked forward to the broadcast of the drama. Science as a theme is quite difficult to think of but enjoy watching, increase your knowledge a bit, and after watching, I think it will be a drama possessing wishes for the future. Please look forward to it.

(Producer Asano Atsuya)
Science and medical treatment advances in an incredible speed. But, to that extent, we fall onto various problems that we haven't imagined until now. This drama will probably wake us up to mysterious cases involved with cutting edge science and medical treatment in the near future. In the first place, this world is full of mysteries. The mechanism of nature and living things still hasn't been clarified that much, as with a person's body, heart and the like. With this conceived mystery, the eccentric genius with an artificial arm, genius scientist Himokura played by Yamashita Tomohisa-san, challenges various cases. With his scientific knowledge and brilliant reasoning, he explains mysterious cases, saving people, a new sense of science human mystery. Furthermore, what happened to Himokura's artificial robot hand... that mystery, please solve that mystery by watching the drama!

Thank you for the translation!

Finally a drama to look forward to. I don’t know why but it’s giving me the vibes from Unnatural? Since it’s also on TBS and the science-mystery genre

This sounds quite interesting! Hope the script and casting is good. I'm also interested to see how they will pull off the robotic arm thing to make it look realistic. For some reason, that black arm reminds me of darth vader lol
And Pi playing a do-S!!! Finally!!! hehehe
