Following its smash hit debut in 2015, Downtown Rocket returns for a second season in 2018 furthering the struggles and challenges of Kohei Tsukuda, a former rocket scientist and leader of the Tsukuda Manufacturig Co., a cozy factory in the old part of Tokyo.

But when news arrives of a sudden replacement of the Teikoku president, the Stardust Project appears in jeopardy, further compounded by Tsukuda’s loss of a major client, a farm machinery maker, who decides to cancel engine orders.

Chief Kosaka of the No. 1 Investigative Enforcement Division is highly talented and is thought to be a sure choice for Superintendent in the future.

Although he has wandered from the fast track to promotion, his new co-workers do their best – in their own feckless way – to solve petty incidents, always believing in their own sense of justice. As Kosaka reflects on his mission as a policeman and his own thoughts on justice, he learns to believe in himself as he fights against “evil.” A thrilling drama about men fighting for justice within a giant organization, the Police.

She becomes enthralled with the world of comic publishing with all of its meetings with serial cartoon writers, discovery of new talent, negotiating of issue volume, and working to secure second print runs. Despite her enthusiasm, Kokoro comes face to face with the hard realities of publishing as more content goes digital, and the days of the printed page appear numbered. If a comic book series doesn’t catch fire by its 3rd volume, it is doomed. Hoping to resuscitate fading “manga” artists on the cusp of oblivion, Kokoro and her colleagues strike upon a unique plan to produce a big hit, but must contend with their marquee writer being headhunted by a rival magazine, and the constant threat of discontinued publication. It’s one crisis after another for this plucky editing team.
