Because Japan is surrounded

on all sides by water...

the Japan Coast Guard patrols

its maritime borders...

through 11 regions.

But for search-and-rescue...

we have one organization

that covers the whole nation.

The Japan Coast Guard Special Rescue Team.

Or "Special Ops."

They are based out of

the 3rd region's Haneda Airport facility.

And boast the highest level

rescue skills imaginable.

They are 36 select members

from 13,000 coast guard officers.

Divided into 6 teams.

They can respond to chemical

and gas explosions.

They're ready to roll out

to any part of the country...

to step into situations too hazardous...

for even the most trained rescue divers.

They face various hazards.

Confront death on a regular basis.

So they train constantly...

building up stamina, mental strength...

sharpening their judgment and acumen.

They are trained for danger.

In short, Special Ops are...

the last line of defense

in maritime rescue.

"Japan Coast Guard Special Rescue Team"

Water, clear! Taiyo Senzaki rolling out!

Check residual pressure.

Come and eat your wife's delicious cooking,


Here, Mika.

Thank you.

Chow time, Taiyo.

Munch munch.

Take a seat.

Your tank goes...?


Wow, Taiyo. Good call.

Eat up, Mika.

Yoshioka always does when he visits us.

He tells me about it in his emails.

"Today we celebrated Taiyo's birthday..."

Or you and Kanna's 5th anniversary.

He comes to forget

how lonely he is without you.

You sure look happy now.

We're inseparable.

Stop it.

- Why?

- It's embarrassing.

Why's that embarrassing?

Yeah, stop it you lovebirds.

We're not doing anything?

Excuse him, please.

We're no slouches, either.

Our second one's coming.

That's right. You'll be a brother, Taiyo.

A big brother.

And future Coast Guard officer?

Do it! Follow your dad!

No, a boy's got to outdo his dad.

What, like Prime Minister?

No way!

That's a bit much.

- Think bigger. World leader.

- The world?

Darn right. President of the United States!

Hold on. To be President of the U.S...

He has to learn English!


Repeat, Taiyo! A... B... C!

Stop it. He'll catch your stupidity.

See not "Thee"!


Look at him.

I'm sorry, Kanna.

For having a job not

suited to raising kids.

That's okay. I can't

picture you in a desk job.

Being a rescue diver is in your blood.

I wonder when he'll understand...

what his dad does.

Well, you can't quit until he does.

But be safe.

Haneda Tokyo International Airport.

With today's low pressure system...

expect some extra turbulence up there.

Make sure people are fastened in.

That's all. Thank you.

Thank you.


Yes, Mika's a C.A... cabin attendant.

Really, Yoshioka?

How'd you swing that?

She's from Kagoshima.



- Where was I?

- Kagoshima.

Yes! Yoshioka was on a speed date.

A friend brought her.

We hit it off.

And now they're both in Yokohama

dating every morning.

It's not a date.

Way to go, Yoshioka!


You two seem close.

We're long time buddies, yes.

This is where the cream of the crop gather.

We may have partners,

but we look after ourselves here.

Of course.

This isn't a frat house.


Senzaki may be older,

but you're the veteran here.

You should know better.

Togawa! You too.

Sorry, Sir.

You'll be all right!

There's one more!

I'm going!

LAJ501 ETA to Kansai Airport

scheduled for 18:30.

Special Ops returning

to Haneda are to stand by.


LAJ501 ETA to Kansai Airport

scheduled for 18:30.

Special Ops returning

to Haneda are to stand by.

I had to go when I saw there was another.

It was reckless all the same.

He was asking me for help.

If I deem it too perilous, I don't go.

Even if the target's a meter away.

We're called to places that divers

and rescue units can't touch.

Make a judgment error,

and there's no one to help.

We're the end of the line.

All the more reason for not quitting.

I want to get everyone out.

I see.

Now I know why

you wanted to join us at your age.

The ferry accident 6 years ago.

The oil rig 2 years ago.

I hear you rescued the last survivors.

Nice heroics.

But ultimately...

your team members had to rescue you.

In my opinion...

creating those circumstances signifies

a failed mission.

You made the same mistake today.

Your groundless bravado

endangered everyone.

Listen close.

Successful operations require skill

and cool heads.

If you keep this up,

you'll just need rescuing again.

If a colleague dies saving you, then what?

Senzaki's looking pretty glum.

Long time since we had a guy

who wears his heart on his sleeve.

You don't like him.

This unit must consist

of the agency's most special people.

Special people, huh?

You disagree?

No, you're precisely right.

That's you.

But Senzaki may be special, too.

I'd prefer not to be lumped

with a guy who's risen on luck.

Excuse me.

It was heartbreaking...

retreating when

there were still people to be rescued.

Hats off to you special ops.

I watched what you did.

While we stood helpless.

We lost one.

But you did all you could.

It wouldn't have been

like you to leave him.

Are you returning to Haneda now?

I'll be training there this weekend.

Buy me dinner or something.

Take care.


Don't be reckless.

I'm no role model.

You are to me.

Kanna! Where's Taiyo?

You okay, Taiyo? Are you hurt?

He's fine now,

but he cried like crazy at the hospital.

He fell down some stairs?

We were hit by a wave of people

rushing down steps at a station.
