NEO Beer has always been ranked No. 5 in the beer industry, but by the order of the company president, they’re going to secure the No. 1 market share. The Sales Dept. keeps coming up with bizarre ideas such as “Zero Gravity beer”, but nothing quite hits the spot. In the meantime, an ad hoc proposal by a new recruit gets approved, and the story gets going in a big way. NHK started broadcasting “NEO-Office Chuckles” in 2004, which condensed the gist of Japanese office workers. The program was nominated for the Emmy awards in 2007 and 2008, and finally made into a movie to blast away the tiredness in Japan!
