In the drama series “Shitsuren Hoken” (“Broken Heart Insurance”; Nihon TV, Thurs., 11:58 p.m.), the fictional Yotsuba Shrine offers the titular insurance to anyone in love who isn’t sure if the object of their desire is constant. If the significant other breaks off the relationship, the policy holder receives benefits.

It is thus important for the shrine to make sure love blooms, and the greedy head priest, Torako (Arata Furuta), uses behavioral scientist Luke (Yu Shirota) to ensure that happens with the help of Maru (Saki Fukuda), an employee at the shrine.
