Saturdays, 11.10 – 11.55 p.m. from 11 January 2014
Fourth-year Jokei University student and president of the tennis club Shino Yuta, goes on a graduation trip with five close members who belong to the same club. In order to arrive at the ski slope in the early morning for snowboarding, they have to set off late at night. Yuta volunteers to be the driver. Sakurada Miki, Sasaki Rinka, Fueki Mana, and the only junior Tachibana Satsuki get into the car. Even Takano Natsu, who is always late, joins them, and then head straight for the ski slope. Everyone thoroughly enjoys snowboarding. After that, the six of them smile for a group photo with the ski slope in the backdrop. They are completely oblivious to the news on TV about a murder that occurred nearby. The bracelet that Miki is wearing becomes a topic of conversation among the female members who have got out of the hot spring. She shyly reveals that it is from Natsu. Rinka and Satsuki, who had not known that the two of them are dating, are surprised. Rinka is a little shocked that Miki did not tell her about it. Then Rinka receives a phone call … … They arrive at the holiday home which Miki’s parents own. Just as all of them are struck by its spaciousness, they unexpectedly hear the door opening at the entrance. Miki’s older brother Wataru appears before them. Although Miki looks unhappy with him, Satsuki falls in love at first sight with his looks. That night, when they are preparing dinner in the kitchen, the lights suddenly go out … … Even though the six appear to be good friends, a variety of feelings simmer beneath the surface. They have conflicting positions and when love starts to go down the tubes, a murder occurs like a bolt from the blue. Amid the fear and doubt, the complex emotions such as romance and jealousy that have been hidden so far begin to come into the open through exchanges which probe each other’s intentions.
