Asakura Keita, 35, is an all-around nice guy who is a primary school teacher from rural Nagano Prefecture. His recently deceased father had been a Diet (House of Representatives) member from Kyushu. Keita has no political aspirations, but agrees, to run just to get everyone off his back permanently.
Backing from some sharp political operatives sweeps him into the Diet, which leads to a shot at the Prime Minister’s position.
Once elected, he’s bounced about and manipulated by the elders of the Seiyuto (Political Friends Party) as he tries to use his power to change things for the better.
