Ouroboros ep 4 [review]

Ikuo was transferred to MPD under the promotion by Hibino’s father. In the meantime, he and Danno also did some investigation on Haijima Corporation, the company where the dead homeless guy worked at. This week, Danno’s in the ‘hensou character’ so he gets to cosplay. Kabe-don seems to be very famous in Japan so much it’s like an ongoing trend now.

If anyone’s curious, this is around chapter 44 in the manga version, I’d say this is going in a faster rate than the manga. Ikuo is no longer Hibino’s partner so who’s Ikuo’s new partner?

Ikuo got punched in the face by his new partner, Bando. I guess he should be grateful at least Hibino never resorted to such violence on him before (pinching his nose didn’t count). The new case they had this week was the grossest case since episode 1. Police investigators were murdered one by one and to top it off, the killer even dismembered their bodies. Too bad they didn’t really go to the extreme of showing more graphic scenes of the victims. Bando became one of the targets after they realized the victims were his same year mates from the police academy.

Chono from 1st division continued to pursue Ikuo’s relationship with Danno. He discussed the matter with Hibino who also began to re-analyze Ikuo’s behavior.

Ouroboros ep04 (848x480 x264).mp4_snapshot_21.38_[2015.02.08_02.41.11]I think they should stop the club setup to be honest. How is it possible for Danno’s voice (facing the other side) even reach Ikuo’s ears?

Ikuo was suspicious about Yuiko-sensei’s background. He was wondering why would she own a gun and something she said along the lines of ‘if you get hit, make sure to return the hit.’ The ‘angel’ Yuiko sensei was starting to fade but Danno cut Ikuo off by saying ‘Yuiko’s identity is not related to what they’re pursuing at the moment.’ That was obviously DENIAL.

Ouroboros ep04 (848x480 x264).mp4_snapshot_28.35_[2015.02.08_03.35.44]Oh yes, more scenes of Ikuo and Hibino together. There’s no doubt with Ikuo being transferred to MPD, there’ll be less scenes of them.

There were some pretty nice fight scenes between Danno and the killer at the hospital. Man, how I wish it was longer. Danno looks good in doctor suit.

During the fight showdown with the killer, Ikuo experienced headaches again and saw flashes of Yuiko from the night of the murder.

Apparently, she was crying as she talked with with another man.

Ouroboros ep04 (848x480 x264).mp4_snapshot_38.08_[2015.02.08_03.04.33]Ikuo finally found out that the guy he met in 1st episode at the place he always dines at was Hibino’s father. He had taken an unusual liking towards Ikuo, what with transferring him over to MPD and then saving him after he punched another higher ranked officer by not punishing him for it. Hibino on the other hand didn’t look as happy to see her father.

Am I the only person who’s happy that Hibino is also transferred to MPD and becomes Ikuo’s partner again? *was grinning from ear to ear*

Just like him!

Ouroboros ep04 (848x480 x264).mp4_snapshot_43.24_[2015.02.08_03.13.52]Nobody should separate this conbi. Ever.

Ouroboros ep04 (848x480 x264).mp4_snapshot_43.19_[2015.02.08_03.14.33]Haijima’s president had these pictures of children and I think they were the orphans under Yuiko like Danno and Ikuo. The president even contacted Danno, telling him he knew about them 20 years ago. But when he went to meet him, he was already murdered.

He then saw pictures of their younger selves on the floor. But something else caught his attention.

Yuiko was a cop?!

Hmm another twist?


Looks like Hibino’s getting more and more suspicious of Ikuo’s relationship with Danno. How will Ikuo convince her?

  1. Thank you!! I was getting exasperated that there was very little recaps on the asian dramas that I love. Apart from Ouroboros, I’m into Marumaru Tsuma, Maids (Korean) and Loving, Never Forgetting (Chinese) as well and boy, did i scour the net for them to very little avail.. Agreed that Ikuo/Hibino combo is very compatible (and chemistry-laden!) ~ I’m just so loving this drama

    • arigatou ritsu dorama for review..ahh i wander how your reviews for eps 5, so far eps 5 is my favourite..omg..chemistry between ikuo and mizuki sooo good..i rewind the scene when ikuo and mizuki appeared many times..i just love them..and eps 6 seems soo good too

      and tearful elise..maybe you like mondai no aru restaurant too..i like that show too..its so heartwarming..women in those show very charming..they share they hope and fear together ..i hope you like it

  2. Ikuta Toma’s my favorite!!! He was awesome in HanaKimi (I was secretly hoping for Ashiya to end up with Nakatsu…Ikuta was sooo cute as Nakatsu!) and again awesome in Ouraboros.
    I am at the fifth episode and am already berating the fact that there’s only ten of them…(boohoo!)

    Why is it that good things come in small packages??
    The next in my list is Bokura ga Ita Kouhen and Zenpen (since I am still on an Ikuta Toma high)
