Manako Amano is a professor of engineering at a leading university and has been studying “failure studies”. Rather than pursuing responsibility for failure, it is a study that helps to prevent recurrence by investigating the direct causes and the background and social causes. The various accidents that occur every day are always failures, and accident investigation is Manako's best fieldwork. Their activities go beyond engineering and spread with curiosity, such as corporate fraud and medical accidents. Personality is self-paced and selfish. He loves failure with the belief that “growth/progress will always be accompanied by failure” and frustrates the other party in order to shine his eyes on the failure story. However, the genius with a built-in failure database of east and west in the brain, Manako, reached the truth of the accident today! (Source: NHK) Edit Translation

The acting performance by the lead actress...
Yasuko matsuyuki in this drama takes her persona with her from case to case . As Professor Amano she makes use of her own personality in playing the role instead of learning about the character she is playing. As a result, her name alone can tell the viewers what to expect from a drama with Yasuko in the lead role.. since she rarely stray from her usual roles. She is known to be versatile but she personally takes on roles which are eccentric and in a position of power like a boss, top Doctor or a Police Chief and in this case a genius Professor..
She is excellent in inhibiting these kind of characters, who seemingly have no flaws and best at what they do and the role of Professor Amano is no exception..

Accidents or mishaps happen every day and all the time . Some are unnoticeable and some draws international attention , but they are not all unavoidable. some accidents are treated as negligence, while some others get charged with staging a crime as an accident or sometimes even mother nature has a role to play..
The drama primarily focus on the professor who helps anyone who ask for her help to get an understanding of what exactly happened that led to such tragedies, the very nature of the accident or if it was even an accident.. Whatever the reason even if it seems impossible or supernatural, the Professor will find the truth along with the prove..

This is a new kind of mystery drama that describes the cause rather than the effects and the misfortunes that's comes with them for the people involved..the drama emphasis the fact that science has revolutionised modern life, made criminals obsolete and can explain the chain of events that are cause of mysterious accidents and how to avoid them..
I think mystery fans and science geeks will love it..
