Japan’s labour environment is about to transform dramatically with the changing times. In the past, lifetime employment had been taken for granted. Now, the resistance to changing occupations has diminished and the scale of this market keeps growing as companies compete to survive. Kurosawa Kazuki is the CEO of the recruitment agency SAGASU and a maverick headhunter. He goes deep into the minds of potential candidates and corporate clients to achieve ideal matches with techniques that can be called aggressive. At times, he is a savior, at other times a devil. Kurosawa is supported by his employees Haitani Tetsuya, who is in charge of general affairs and accounting; Miyu, a researcher who is highly skilled with computers; and Sanagi, a former business newspaper journalist. Meanwhile, Akagi Kyoko, who is in the top management of the industry’s largest outplacement company Bridge, hates Kurosawa’s work and burns with a sense of rivalry. Kurosawa’s background is a mystery. Even his associate of 30 years Haitani does not know the details and they share a complicated relationship. – Jdrama Weblog
