Tamo Aoshi (Ninomiya Kazunari) is a substitute teacher at his alma mater, a prestigious private high school which admits 200 students to Tokyo University every year. He becomes the coach of the weak baseball club which has only five members and has never won a game since it was established. The highest number of times they have thrown the ball back and forth without dropping it is nine. They prefer the outfield because the infield is scary. Furthermore, they practice on the grounds only three hours a week. At other times, they study, study and study. But they love baseball. Finding them interesting and strange creatures, Aoshi decides that he will give his charges victory, guided by his offbeat theory “triumph is possible even if weak”. And then they seriously set their sights on the annual nationwide high school baseball championship with their brand of preposterous baseball.

Echizen-san is a timid, thirty-something single female who pours out her daily stress in a manga that she draws every day as a diary. The main character of her manga is Hara-chan, a man who rambles on about his complaints to his friends in an izakaya bar. Always regretting that he can never speak up for himself and taking the blame for everything — he is the projection of Ms. Echizen’s deepest feelings. However, one day, Hara-chan’s world begins to shake, and he learns “God up above is angry”… In a magical warp, Hara-chan finds himself taken out of his two dimensional world and into reality as a true man. Hara-chan ventures out to find “God” and happens to meet Echizen-san who is taken aback by Hara-chan, a strange man who suddenly appears before her. Will Echizen-san realize that he is indeed the person sketched in the pages of her daily manga and that she has manifested a man? What will be the fate of the two, when Hara-chan begins to fall in love with his so-called “God”…? Nakuna, Hara-chan! is a fish-out-of-water fantasy with some unique Pygmalion essence that depicts a character brought into the real world and discovers the beauty of what it means to be a human, to live, and to fall in love.

Kiriyama Shuichiro works as an information management officer in the prefectural police station. As he is very observant and has interest in the unresolved cases which have gone past the legal time frame (statute of limitations) i.e. the culprit cannot be charged even if he/she is caught, he investigates the cases without permission with the aim of “confirming” the culprit only. Some charateristics of this character would be his dark green spectacles, his wallet containing 20,000 yen at all times and he likes udon and nyuumen.
