Manatsu no hôteishiki

AKA: Midsummer's Equation

Country: Japan

Genre: Mystery



Dr. Yukawa Manabu heads for the small port town of Harigaura, where he has been asked to mediate between the locals and a resources development company keen to start mining offshore. Soon enough, he’s caught up in a murder mystery after a former policeman is found dead on the rocks, and a detective is sent from Tokyo to lend him a hand. Yukawa quickly uncovers links between the victim and the Kawabata family, with their marine activist daughter Narumi seeming to be at the center of a dark secret from the past. At the same time, he ends up spending time with the family’s grandson Kyohei and forms a bond with the young lad while teaching him about the wonders of science.
