Yochou Sanpo Suru Shinryakusha


Official Website

From 12.00 a.m., Tuesdays, 19 September 2017


Yamagiwa Etsuko’s colleague Asakawa Miyuki confesses to her that there is a ghost in her house. But when she goes to Miyuki’s house, only Miyuki’s father is there. Worried about Miyuki’s mental state, Etsuko takes her to the psychosomatic medicine department at the hospital where her husband Tatsuo works. They learn from the results that Miyuki has no sense of the concept of “family”. Etsuko happens to meet Tatsuo at the waiting room and is introduced to a new surgeon Makabe Shiro. Makabe’s unusual air makes her feel very uncomfortable. After she gets home, Etsuko talks to Tatsuo about the discomfort she feels with Makabe. However, he only gives a curt reply. Etsuko begins to feel an unknown anxiety as her husband who is always with Makabe, is driven to the edge. Then one day, she is told by Makabe who is with her husband at the hospital that he came to invade Earth. Etsuko does not know whether it as a joke or the truth but she starts to suspect that the series of unusual events happening around her are connected to Makabe.
