 出揃ってきた今クールのドラマに,次回を楽しみに待てるものを見つけました。日本テレビで水曜夜10時放送,新垣結衣さん,松田龍平さん主演の「獣になれない私たち」です。

 I found a drama which makes me feel like looking forward to the next episode among the dramas having started this season. The drama is titled “Kemono ni Narenai Watashitachi” broadcast at 10 p.m. on every Wednesday featuring Aragaki Yui and Matsuda Ryuhei.

 新垣さん演じる深海晶(しんかいあきら)は,ECサイト(オンラインショッピングサイト)制作会社の営業アシスタントです。松尾貴史さん演じる社長,九十九剣児は人使いが荒く,思い通りにいかないと部下を罵倒し,休日だろうが夜中だろうが業務メッセージを送りつけるせっかちな人物のため,優秀な社員も逃げ出してしまうのでした。残っている社員は仕事のできないものが多い中,仕事も気配りもできる晶は,アシスタントでありながらプレゼンから顧客との打ち合わせ,SEとのつなぎという営業の仕事にまで追われ,神経をすり減らし,疲れ切る毎日です。自分の感情を押し殺し,必死に業務をこなしている晶ですが,せっかちな社長はそれをねぎらうどころか要求と叱責のメッセージを送り続け,他の社員は仕事のミスのしりぬぐいを押し付け,顧客は土下座を要求した上にセクハラまがいのメッセージを送ってくるという切羽詰まった状況に追い込まれてしまい……。

 Shinkai Akira played by Aragaki is a sales assistant for an EC site company. Because of the difficult personality of the president who drives his men hard and hurls insults at them if things don’t go as he wishes, and he sends business messages all the time even on weekends or late at night, great talents can’t stay at his company. Employees who couldn’t leave the company are not really competent so Akira, just an assistant, who is always doing good job and quite considerate is pressed with jobs like giving presentations, meeting with clients, and mediating between clients and SEs, all of which should be done by sales staff, to end up having her nerves worn down and being exhausted every day. Akira keeps her emotions in check and does desperately all the work, but the hasty president keeps sending messages of reprimand, far from showing appreciation for her hard work, and other employees try to make her clean up their own mess, or a client asks her to prostrate and sends an almost sexual harassment messages so she is driven into a corner…….

 獣って何?と思いますが,うわべを取り繕いながら生きている人間が,心の中にある本音,感情をむき出しにしたときの姿ということでしょうか。晶の中の獣が姿を現すまでの紆余曲折を丁寧に描いた第一話は,視聴者に晶への共感を覚えさせるという最も大切な点で,見事に成功しています。晶の行きつけのクラフトビールバーで出会う敏腕会計士根本恒星が松田龍平さんですが,この人物も飄々としたうわべの下に危険な獣を感じさせます。この2人がどう絡んでいくのか,先を知りたい気持ちは十分に高まっています。

  I wonder what the beast is like here, and I guess it is like a person who revealed his or her real feeling or emotion after pretending for a long time. The first episode perfectly succeeded in the most important point that it made people feel empathy with Akira through describing carefully twists and turns she experienced until the beast in her finally showed up. A capable accountant named Nemoto Kosei who Akira meets at her favorite craft beer bar is played by Matsuda Ryuhei, and this character also makes me feel that he has a dangerous beast under his easygoing surface. I’m already burning with anticipation when I think of how these two characters will interact with each other.
