Adapted from the popular manga Minna! Esupa Dayo! (written and illustrated by Kiminori Wakasugi), which was serialized in the weekly young magazine, this drama follows the story of Kamogawa Yoshiro (Shota Sometani), an average teenager with no special talents nor outstanding abilities, who lives Higashimikawa, a town in the prefecture of Ehime.
One day Yoshiro suddenly realizes that he can hear other people’s thoughts. One of the first things he hears is that Hayashi-sensei (Toshihiro Yashiba) harbors some ulterior motive when it comes to dealing with the new transfer student, Asami Sae (Erina Mano). Yoshiro, because he has these newfound powers, but more importantly because he is in love with Asami, intends to protect her from Hayashi sensei. But the thought of “I shall protect you” quickly broadens into “I shall save the world!”. Later that day, at the Cafe where he often hangs out, he realises that his childhood friend, Hirano Miyuki (Kaho), and the Cafe owner, Nagano Terumitsu (Makita Sports), have also acquired new powers.
Meanwhile, upon hearing the news of how many townspeople are suddenly acquiring special powers, the mysterious teacher (Ken Yasuda) and his assistant (Megumi Kagurazaka) decide to move to the town of Higashimikawa… (Based on the synopsis by TV Tokyo).
