Miyuki Miyamoto is an 8-year-old girl who lost her mother few years ago and now lives with her father, Ryoichi. When one day a hard-working career woman, Akiko Iwamoto, appears and becomes Miyuki’s new stepmom, Miyuki resists, particularly seeing Akiko presents herself with a business card. But Akiko, determined to win over Miyuki’s heart, uses all of her business experience and acumen to the task. And yet, none of her efforts succeed. Ryoichi, too, tries desperately to persuade Miyuki to accept her new stepmom, but he is simply no match for his daughter’s intransigence. Nevertheless, Miyuki finds herself gradually thinking hard about whether to ultimately accept Akiko. The show paints a vivid picture of the ordinary joys and tears of everyday life, punctuated by the occasional small miracles.

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.
