For the band, this will be the first time in two years to provide their songs for drama after "HANABI" for Fuji T drama 'Code Blue 2nd season' (2010).

The drama tells a story of Suzumiya Miki(Inoue) who starts to work at Tokyo Tax Administration Bureau as a new tax collector, and is living positively while struggling with her work and future. Suzumiya belongs to a division called 'Special tax collecter (Tokkan)' which takes charge of wicked cases. Her cold-blooded supervisor Kagami Masachika (played by Kitamura Yukiya) is referred to as 'God of Death', while Suzumiya is called 'Guuko', since she often freezes up in front of Kagami. Suzuki Sawa will be appear in the drama as Suzumiya's senior, Nabeshima Yuko.

The drama will be directed by Mizuta Nobuo, whos known for his work with Maiko haaaan!!! and Naku Monka.

Ionue stated, "It was one of my dreams that my drama's theme song would be provided by Mr.Children, so I am so happy." She added, "I am already looking forward it, and it seems their theme song will add the profoundness, pain, and hope to this story of mental conflict and growth of the protagonist. We, the drama team, will do our best all together, so that we produce a synergistic effect with their song."
