A lone-wolf genius surgeon, known as the "Demon in the operating room", is skeptical about the newly introduced medical instrument "Snipe" that does not require the hands of a surgeon, and puts his pride on the line to uncover the real intentions behind the implementation of this new technology. The drama is based on the new edition of "Black Pean 1988," a novel by Takeru Kaido, which is also the roots of his popular novel - "Team Batista no Eiko".
Tokai (Kazunari Ninomiya), a surgeon at Tojo University Hospital, boasts a 100% surgery success rate, but his arrogance often causes friction among his peers, who refer to him as "a doctor who saves patients but kills doctors". Saeki (Seiyo Uchino), a general surgery professor and one of the best cardiac surgeons in the world, always uses the black forceps commonly known as "Black Forceps." On the day Saeki performs an extremely difficult surgery, doctors from rival hospitals come to watch him at work. During the operation, however, another one of his patients suffers an aortic dissection. His surgical first assistant and a resident, Sera (Ryoma Takeuchi), deal with the patient, but the condition becomes critical. As Takashina (Kotaro Koizumi), a doctor from Teika University Hospital watches on, Tokai appears in the operating room.
