Shakareki! Social History Research Club

Premiering in April 2022 on Nippon Television Network Corporation (Saturdays at 8:54 p.m. Kanto region only), this mini-drama set in a high school social history research club explores the background of modern historical events. Covering a diverse array of topics, including politics, economy, society, culture, science, and sports, the series is supervised by academic experts from the Society for Historical Consulting with script assistance from the Yomiuri Shimbun proofreading department.

Starring Matsuya Onoe as Kohei Shinjitsu, the advisor teacher of the Tokeizaka Gakuen social history research club. With a slightly eccentric character at its core, the drama unfolds at a brisk pace.

In March 2024, the third-year club member played by Airu Kubozuka, Shii Ritera, graduated, leaving only one member, Anna Komine, played by Runa Nakajima. As Ritera graduates, he entrusts Komine with a mission: to uncover the secrets of Teacher Shinjitsu's computer. Will any new club member emerge to help Komine chase after Teacher Shinjitsu's hidden past? The future developments are eagerly awaited.

More than just a source of family entertainment, this show promises a chance to learn something new.
