Angel Heart ep1 [first impression]

This isn’t really in my list of to watch this season but it turns out to be quite interesting. In fact, I really like the chemistry between Takaya Kamikawa and Aibu Saki in this. They’re such a great partner and couple. I half-wished that Kaori (Aibu Saki) didn’t have to die so early in the show because I want to see more of her and Ryo Saeba (Takaya Kamikawa) together!

Angel Heart ep01 (848x480 x264).mp4_snapshot_00.06.28_[2015.10.15_13.45.17]After Kaori died in an accident, her heart was donated to another person with a code name Glass Heart (Ayako Miyoshi) who is being hunted by a bunch of bad guys that belong to an organization. Ryo has since worked alone but continues to search for Kaori’s heart. He wants to know who it is transplanted to. A year later, Glass Heart appears at the cafe he frequents and uttered the password XYZ. He then rescues her from the guys.

It turns out later that Glass Heart was an assassin from the organization and because of a certain case a year ago, she felt guilty and committed suicide. The organization didn’t want to lose such a good assassin so they saved her and somehow Kaori’s heart was transplanted to her.

It’s so good to see Takaya Kamikawa again. His character is also lovable.

Ahhh I still want to see more of them together.

Just your very typical basic fights and shooting. They probably should get proper action choreographer but since it’s just a drama, I doubt it. They also repeated a number of the same flashbacks especially to connect between Xiang-Ying (codename: Glass Heart) and Kaori so I find those a bit unnecessary.

The only nice shot lolz
