The drama begins its run from 20 October in the Fridays 8pm timeslot.

The story features Sawamura Ikki as the lead character Sugiyama who used to be an elite employee at a top-notch advertising agency but failed in striking out on his own even though he had a lot of faith in his abilities. He then joins a small advertising agency named Universal Koukokusha in a sleepy seaside town and works hard in carving out a niche for himself.

Katase Nana will be playing Inokuma Erika who is in charge of the accounting department in the company while Kaname Jun plays Murasaki Rokuro who is the web designer and prone to clashing with Inokuma. The president of the agency Ishii Kenichiro will be played by Miyake Yuji and Wakui Emi will play Fujisawa Sakura who is working at a cafe in a shopping street near the agency. Denden will play Fujisawa Hiroshi, the master of the cafe and is always hostile towards Sugiyama for no reason while Yatsui Ichirou will play Shirota Hikaru who doesn't have a job and depends on his parents' inheritance and Internet auctions to survive. Last but not least, Irie Jingi will play Ichinose Hajime who operates a cafe but actually has no interest in the business and is in charge of the radio information service at the shopping street.
