Story
Akitsu Wataru is the manager of the Toyama Chuo branch of Maruo Holdings, an established major supermarket chain. He was demoted as a result of some incident and moved to the countryside with his family. One day, there is a complaint about a 1 yen coin found inside a melon bun sold at the Nerima branch. Takamura Makoto from the Compliance Office suspects harassment by female employees from the suspicious phone call that Sasabe, the person in charge of the sales floor, received during closing time the night before. However, the CEO Maruo Takafumi fears that this will have an impact on a new Shinagawa branch which is opening in four days and refuses to file a police report. Meanwhile, Akitsu is suddenly called back to the headquarters as the head of compliance. The CEO and board members have hidden ulterior motives.
