劇場版ATARU - THE FIRST LOVE & THE LAST KILL -
New York. Ataru belongs to the Savant Program Branch of the FBI, which has just been hit by an explosive. Meanwhile, similar tactics have been used to blow up electric rail lines in Tokyo. Wheelchair-confined chief of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police, Akiho Hoshi, has just put agent Sawa and his team at the First Investigative Division on the case when Larry and Ataru appear on the investigation headquarters. According to Larry, the two bombing plots originated from a financial business zone in London, orchestrated via server by a computer virus dubbed "Wizard". The virus was developed by a Brazilian-Japanese named Madoka with whom Sawa and his force had previously crossed paths as a suspect in a serial murder case. Like Ataru, Madoka bears traits similar to those of a savant and was also formerly an SPB candidate who had received training. The two remotely perpetrated bombings put the FBI and Tokyo Metropolitan Police Agency in hot pursuit of Madoka.

Autistic 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.
