Episode 2 brings a fresh breath of air onto the table for us viewers. In the pilot, I mentioned how I don’t particular like the fact that Ango knows the killer when he can communicate with the dead victims. All the victims had to do was to point to the killer and Ango had to find some clues to pin the killers. I’m not a huge fan of this style of detective drama. I like the suspense and little clues dropped on the floor, a trail towards the bad guys and the revelation at the end. This drama works the opposite way. So it takes away the suspense for me.
Nice to see a harakiri in this modern age (though he sliced his own neck instead of gut).
I’m glad they ditched that style in Episode 2 and instead, made the killer commit suicide. Ango now finds himself having difficulty communicating with a killer who obviously is an egoistic block.
I think episode 2 rekindled my interest in this show. A different pattern is always welcome as we know how repetitive Japanese detective dramas can be.
Can someone explain why the coroners in this drama shows quite a lot of skin lol….I don’t get it.
Oh but Ango was not amused, not even a bit.
The pair was a comic relief very much needed in an otherwise very very solemn and pale drama. I mean, Ango needs to show some other expression than only that above!
This is a better episode than the first. I’m at least happy they shake things up a bit instead of the repetitive formula. We’ll have to see what else the screenwriters can do in the 3rd episode. But I will continue for now. I find myself having nothing much to write about this show though. Perhaps the setting, mood, everything else just make me feel bit dull.
Anybody else finds that kid at the end, creepy?
