About this deal
Meanwhile, a man approaches the prime minister’s secretary, who is busy dealing with the accident. His name is Shitara Kyoichi, also known as the “fixer”. Kyoichi had covered up the PM’s misconduct in the past and had talked with the PM on the phone just before the accident. Was this an accident, or was this a set-up in the political world?
