    • Synopsis
    • Kiichi loves rock-n-roll guitar more than life itself and works part-time at a sushi shop. His twin brother - the brains in the family - suddenly decides to take a trip overseas. Since they are identical twins, he has to show up to his brother’s college classes.

      One day, his main lecture teacher gives him an impossible order: get dropout student Saraka Homizu to come to class. Saraka showed amazing talent with math and physics from an early age. After graduating from a famous American university with a degree in physics, this genius went on to get a PhD in computer science. But since coming back to Japan, this genius won’t attend any classes and the university doesn’t know what to do with her.

      He decides to pay her a visit at her house partly for his brother. She presses him with physics questions, but he manages to make something up. When asked if he’s chosen a research thesis topic, Kiichi comes up with the first thing that slips out of his mouth. “Yeah, thinking about how to create the universe.”

      The next day, Saraka suddenly shows up in class! Apparently she’s interested in Kiichi’s “ultimate thesis”. But unlucky for him, they end up on the same research team that has to substantiate how to create the universe. Their teacher instructs, “If you want to create the universe, you better figure out how it’s constructed. Reference Einstein’s God’s Puzzle.”

      Can these two solve this grand puzzle? And what awaits them if they do??
