Synopsis
Property agent Nagase Saichi boasts the top sales at Tosaka Real Estate due to his eloquence and competence. He has stayed the number one salesman for his willingness to lie in sales pitches. The destruction of a small shrine at the construction site for an apartment building one day results in sudden divine punishment that makes him unable to tell lies. As he rattles on about things he does not need to say, clients naturally get enraged and this ends up undermining a string of contracts that were close to being signed. Nagase’s top spot is quickly taken over by Kiriyama Takahisa, a junior in the same company. While the two of them fight over clients, newbie Tsukishita Sakura struggles to seal her first contract despite her philosophy of putting clients first. Meanwhile, Kiriyama asks Nagase to switch a client he is in charge of. Wanting to improve his sales performance, Nagase readily agrees but the property in question has hidden problems relating to rent. How will Nagase be able to survive in the cutthroat real estate industry where sales techniques counts for everything, now that he is a property agent with honesty as his only weapon?
