The publication of a new dictionary called The Great Passage is being constructed. Mitsuya Majime, originally from publisher Genbu Shobo's sales department, has been recruited by the retiring editor of the dictionary department Kouhei Araki to succeed him due to his love and dedication to reading. The dictionary department is known internally as the "money-eating insect," but Mitsuya uses his perseverance and attachment to the words in order to become a great editor.
