His older sister Chiaki is a competent lawyer and his older brother Hirofumi is a talented heart surgeon. Together, they solve problems, holding strategy meetings at secret family meetings. But it is only cases which threaten family peace that they do all they can to solve. As members of a well-known family, they continue to be under all sorts of pressure by their father Taizo, who is the headmaster of a private junior high school which is difficult to get into, and lead rather tough lives.

Hirofumi and Chiaki try to do something even though this is against the code of professional ethics of a doctor or lawyer. Even Shusaku is encouraged to help.
