Series Summary from ANN:
The school adventure story revolves around Kaito, a puzzle-loving freshman at the private high school named "Root Academy." He is selected as a candidate for "Phi Brain" for his extraordinary mental skills. One day, he and his childhood friend Nonoha tackle the "unsolvable puzzle" hidden in the underground ruins near the school. They are guided by the mobile device given to Kaito by the student council president.

The puzzle is the "philosopher's puzzle," a life-threatening creation of a mysterious intelligence group known as "POG." When he defeats the puzzle, he is designated as a "Solver." Together with Nonoha and other Solvers, Kaito battles POG at "philosopher's puzzles" all over the world.
Kenn's Comment: NHK-E is NHK's Educational channel. Which would then imply that this one isn't a brainless series, and will likely have something to tie it into various kinds of puzzles (math, word, etc). I haven't a clue about how this will turn out, but if it's Sunrise (though I suppose Sacred 7 is an example of things not going well) and Satou Junichi at the helm (though he's working off scripts provided by another person), it will likely turn out to be at least a few levels above decent. I trust in you Satou-san! 

And if you haven't already guessed, that's more or less the extent of information I can find for this one. Oh, and May'n does the opening. Anyone interested now? Title is Brain Diver.
