"You have the right to quit this company."

The heroine utters this line at the climax of every episode of a TV drama series currently airing on Saturday nights, "Miss Devil" ("Devil of Human Resources").

The setting is Kyoa Fire Insurance. Out of nowhere, a leggy beauty with sharp eyes and even sharper eyeliner arrives on the scene. The firm's president reportedly headhunted her to overhaul corporate culture at Kyoa. Rumor has it that Mako Tsubaki made her name in the U.S. as a "termination consultant," moving from place to place and firing people with outrageous abandon, cruelty and callousness (not unlike the character played by George Clooney in the 2009 film "Up in the Air").
