Protect the Ordinary Days People Cherish: Sports Day (30 seconds)
A monitor shows a father and son as they enter the field holding hands on Sports Day. Kento Nagayama, a researcher in Chugai Innovation Lab, gazes at the monitor.
Last year, the father was hospitalized and couldn't attend Sports Day. ChuLabo, a microscope robot, appears and says to the researcher, "Dad is coming this year."
"Can medicine change the future of humanity?" ChuLabo asks. The father and son fall down.
