It was stress caused by excessive work and responsibility. “The First Responders” will share a message of condolence for the deceased in the first broadcast, and the final scene of the final episode will include photos of the deceased and their condolences. Attention is focused on whether this work, which contains memory, will be able to do splendidly well at the end of the year.
