  • Synopsis:Date Kazuyoshi (Sakai) is a detective on the Kanagawa prefectural police force. During the day, he is known as a “Buddha” for his gentle personality, pouring all of his energy into resolving each case. At night, however, he transforms into a cruel punisher as his gentleness gives way to his anger towards the criminals. The series poses questions about what justice and evil truly are. –Tokyograph

It may be another cop drama, but this series is very unique.  It’s mysterious, but not too mysterious, and yet it somehow keeps you guessing.  I loved the plot and did not get bored watching it.

The main character is very interesting. Despite his dark past, he seems to have a smile on his face all the time no matter what he is feeling.  His smile is not a superficial fake smile, but rather a smile of innocence.

On a side note, I absolutely love the theme-song for this drama (SCAR by Rip Slyme). On another side note, Ryo (NEWS) is in this drama as well. While I certainly didn’t start watching this drama because of him, I was pleasantly surprised and happy to see him in it. I just love his voice (like when he talks–it’s a weird thing to like, I know).

This series is very interesting, so I recommend you check it out.

My Rating: (3.5/5)
