Six months ago, Takeuchi Kaoru had aspired to be a writer. He has the special ability to copy the thoughts of other people as if he were personally immersed in them just by transcribing their writings. He takes care of his mother Yoko who suffers from dementia, while he concentrates his manuscripts. However, Kaoru’s novels are strikingly similar to the styles of the writers that he referenced and he gets harshly criticised each time he brings his manuscripts to publishing companies. He struggles with his dream and reality as he tries to take care of his mother. Then a tragedy happens when she gets into an accident. Kaoru can no longer find meaning in life, and even the cost of his mother’s hospitalisation is beyond him. Just as he sinks into despair, an ex-classmate Fujiwara Tomomi shows up. Tomomi who became the gang leader of Toguji-gumi’s Seijikai at the young age of 22, has received a request from his chairman Toguji Masatane that no one wants. He offers Kaoru a handsome reward if he takes an examination for the son of some family and gets him into a top university. But Kaoru gets swept up by something unexpected right before he manages to succeed.
