SynopsisAutistic savant, Ataru, has a very unique gift. He is capable of uttering “words” that help the police in their investigations “discover, observe, perceive and deduce” evidence they had hitherto failed to notice. In fact, like a chess genius, Ataru has the ability to think tens of moves ahead of the average person. While it’s obvious to anyone that his favorite foods are tomato ketchup and honey mustard, Ataru struggles with communication, often speaking in conundrums, behaving erratically and even lapsing into hysteric fits. While his uniquely-wired brain enables him to fire off “key words” that are integrally linked to solving crime, the task of piecing his utterances together like a jigsaw puzzle falls to Detective Maiko Ebina and superior officer, Sawa. Together, they create an unlikely and dynamic trio solving one case after another.
토마토 케첩과 허니 마스타드를 좋아하는 서번트증후군인 주인공 아타루. 그는 경찰도 눈치채지 못 한 범죄사건의 사소한 증거를 발견, 관찰, 추리하여 사건해결로 연결되는 단어를 내뱉으면서 사건 을 풀어낸다. 아타루는 언제나 타인의 사고보다 몇배나 앞서 생각하지만, 커뮤니케이션 능력에 문 제가 있어 그가 말하는 단어는 난해하고 이해하기 어려운 행동을 하기도 한다. 가끔씩 패닉증상을 보인다. 아타루는 특이한 두뇌로 다양한 사건의 범인과 사고의 원인으로 연결되는 키워드를 불규칙 적으로 말한다. 그가 내뱉는 퍼즐 조각을 맞춰가는 것이 형사 에비나 마이코의 역할이다. 아타루, 마이코, 마이코의 상사 사와, 세사람은 기묘하게 엮이며 한팀이 되어 매번 사건에 맞서지만….
主角是患有學者症候群，擁有特殊能力的「Ataru」。他協助警察破案運用“發現，觀察，洞察，推理”的能力， 告知與案件相關的「單字」找出犯罪的細微證據。Ataru 的思維總是比常人來的快速而縝密。可是，由於他有 溝通能力的障礙，人們總是無法理解他說的話，還有他那些令人不解的行為時常引起周遭的恐慌。另外，他的 最愛是「蕃茄醬」和「蜂蜜芥末」。 當他用特異的思路，不規則性的解讀出事件的犯人和案發原因的「關鍵字」時；刑警「蛯名 舞子」則負責將他 丟出來有如零散的拼圖塊，重新整理組織。 Ataru 和舞子，加上舞子的「上司沢」這三個人培養了非常奇妙的默契。雖然他們準備好處理下一個案件但…。
