Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Robbed of his short-term memory after a tragic accident, an undergrad law student with a once-promising future instead finds fame as a masked wrestler with some seriously impressive moves. As a law student, Ryoichi excelled considerably. He passed the bar a full year before he was set to graduate, and all signs indicate that he'll soon become a high-powered lawyer. Just when it seemed that Ryoichi's future couldn't get any brighter, however, a serious accident leaves him with no short-term memory. Unable to learn anything new, Ryoichi joins his university wrestling team and begins taking diligent notes at every practice session. It doesn't take long for Ryoichi to learn that he's a natural in the ring, and before long he's donning a lizard mask and green tights while moonlighting as a masked wrestler. The only way Ryoichi can remember his exploits from the previous night is by leaving notes and photos for himself to find in the morning, but if that's what it takes to live the dream he's more than willing to improvise.
