Fancy some comedy cop show? Don’t need to look far. In the latest offering this season, The Last Cop features a young and old combination that instantly reminds me of Bitter Blood. While Bitter Blood is more like father-son conbi, we have total strangers in this new show. Karasawa Toshiaki portrays Kosuke who went into coma for 30 years after being injured in an explosion. Year 2015 arrives and one day he suddenly wakes up.
Look at that caveman hair! LOL
Don’t they help shave and cut patients’ hair in the hospital?
That fake looking CG explosion that is eerily similar to I’m Home’s first episode xD
Turned out his ex-wife had married his own junior xD
So seeing how genki he is, the Chief asked him to come back to work. There, he met younger colleagues, including those who had first arrested him for the commotion. Ryota (Kubota Masataka) was then made his partner.
So begins the journey of these two partners. Kosuke, being stuck from the world 30 years ago, has never known the existence of TV, smartphone and other advanced techs. He’s got lots to catch up.
The moment Funasshi appeared, I burst out laughing. That thing!
Look at him fly!
Then into the ambulance lol
Kosuke met his daughter who never knew his existence but thought the ‘father’ she has now is her biological one.
That confrontation at the end. What the hell lol
Saved by the smartphone.
Quite an enjoyable drama. It’s the kind of drama that I don’t take seriously because it’s supposed to be action comedy. Hence, I don’t really think anything heavy will happen except for some occasional action involving some gunshots and fights. But even those are laced with humor. Not quite whether I’ll be watching in the long run, maybe not, considering I have quite a number of other shows in my list already. But I guess if you like Kubota, then watch this, he’s got lots of expressions, which I don’t think you’ll see in his other dramas.
For example, you can’t take this seriously right? There’s so friggin way he could jump that far.
By the way, am I the only one who thinks Kubota acts a little bit sissy in this show? I wonder if that’s what the director wants for his character, the slightly gentle partner with a tougher one.
Kubota has a huge mouth.
