The original is the popular comic “Mystery”, which has a cumulative circulation of over 13 million copies. Inquiries were flooded to the publishers regarding the rights to visualization, but this time, the long-awaited visualization of fans will be realized in the 9th frame of Fuji TV.

Masaki Suda, at the beginning of 2022, enthusiastically plays the role of a college student who keeps talking.
Masaki Suda, Japan’s number one chameleon actor who has played any character from a refreshing handsome role to a comical role to a crazy role, is himself to make a role in this work. Transform into a huge afro hair with natural hair, and challenge the difficult role of developing a story with just words.

The main character, Totono Kuno, played by Mr. Sugada, is a college student who has a complex with natural perms, has no friends or girlfriend, and loves curry. He always has doubts about what is being taken for granted in society, and with a personality that thinks thoroughly, he vividly develops his theory based on vast knowledge and unique values. No matter what happens around him, he can’t help but talk, so he is a young man who has been told that he is annoying and troublesome.

One day, I was accused of a murder that I didn’t remember:

While being interrogated by the detectives, Sei becomes aware of the hints hidden behind the case and the worries that the detectives have. And, without any particular desire to “solve the case,” while just talking about what you can think of at your own pace, you unravel not only the mystery of the case but also the hearts of people.

This work is an ambitious work that combines unprecedented mystery and conversational drama. The highlight is the many words that begin with the phrase “I always think about it …”. The person is just saying what he wants to say, which sounds like a mere quibble, but it is a courageous word of salvation for those who are suffering from preconceived ideas. I’m sure that word will resonate with the hearts of modern people who live with various problems in the sense of obstruction of the corona, and will evoke great sympathy.

The long-awaited visualization of popular comics:

The original “Don’t Say Mystery” was serialized in the monthly Flowers (published by Shogakukan) in 2016, and 10 volumes have already been published so far. The cumulative circulation has quickly exceeded 13 million. There are many fans among celebrities, and it is a very popular work that captivated Mr. Sugada, who starred, “I definitely wanted to do this original work.” In addition to being ranked second in the “Manga Award 2019” and being in the top 10 for the second consecutive year, it has also been ranked in various awards such as “This manga is amazing!”.
The original author, Yumi Tamura, made her debut as a manga artist in 1983. “Tomoe goes! , “BASARA”, “7SEEDS” and many other popular works, many of which have been developed in various forms such as animation and stage production, but this work is the first time that the work has been made into a live-action drama. It will be.
It is also known that many attractive characters will appear in the original, so please look forward to it, including the lifting of the ban on information such as casting in the future!

The chief director of this work has been “Trace-The Man of Kasouken” (January 2019 / Fuji TV), “Nobunaga Concerto” (October 2014 / Fuji TV), and “Kei Enomoto Series”. Director Hiroaki Matsuyama, who has a reputation for his profound feeling and stylish and original work production, such as “Trace Room” (April 2012 / Fuji TV) and “LIAR GAME” series, is in charge. And with Director Matsuyama, Tomoko Aizawa, who will be the tag of the fifth serial drama, will be in charge of the script.

It is expected to produce a perfect balance between a light comedy-touch sequence that can be squeezed and a serious and moving human drama.

In the past, “Furuhata Ninzaburo” Furuhata Ninzaburo (starring / Masakazu Tamura) and “Galileo” Yukawa Manabu (starring / Masaharu Fukuyama) have been loved by the birth of “Weirdo Characters” from Fuji TV dramas. I don’t want to be involved in acting, but for some reason I’m sure that the existence “university student who keeps talking” Kuno Sei will fascinate the new mystery-solving drama of the Reiwa version! As the title says, please pay attention to the Reiwa version of the new sensation mystery drama, which is “mystery-like and not mystery”.

Episode 1 Synopsis:
