Yasha. From it´s name you could never guess the real value of this Drama here.

I must say that I found it a few days ago by coincidence.
I was randomly looking for good and interesting Dramas to watch when I found out about this one. The plot seemed really interesting. I don´t know the reason but somehow it drew me kind of to watch it.
I was shocked.Deeply shocked...But not because read more it was bad, it was because of the low rating it had.I saw it when I was updating my episodes.I watched all 11 episode in about two days.Please I want to say beforehand that some people tend to say it wouldn´t be"that good"when it´s already so old.Well I must admit I thought so at first.Because it´s the first time I watched a Drama from 2000.But that was predjudice and I corrected my mind about that now!
The time I watched it I never skipped one part and I thought many times about giving it a 10.But I didn.´t.And do you want to know the reason??
Because it isn´t one Drama which you can judge fast.I thought four days about the rating I would give it.In the end I gave it a almost perfect 9 because I didn´t like ......that about TWO mysterys weren´t solved in the end.So for ME it wasn´t the perfect ending.In short it is a almsost 10:DD

The music: The intro was important for the feeling you get in the whole Drama.When at first I didn´t pay attention to it,it made me watch the second and third and fourtz episode..etc.Only because of the intro in the beginning.It´s like a mental preparation for these partly horrible,exciting and lovely scenes.But in all I didn´t notice other outstanding music while watching the episodes.Mostly only in the beginning and ending of the episode.Still I don´t stink it was important for the whole thing so I didn´t mind.MAybe it would have even destroyed some special scenes.At leat it was great without it.

The cast: There was only one main.role and it was my absolute favorite.It´s stunning how he managed to play both-the twins-so convincing!!!They were totally the opposite and still I was deeply moved by both of them(lol at first I only felt hatred to one of them though).The main-roles were really good too.But not all of them. Still I gave it a 9 because of the exceptional main-role and the other supporting roles.The Drama was like that:The more important the better the actor/actress.Yes that´s fitting.

The Story: It was one part I thought about giving a 10 and yes you could say I was snapped but there were a few aspects in the story developement in the end I didn´t like.Still the whole plot was amazing. I was stunned about it.It was simple but amazing.Probably because of the great actors who played it!
Rewatch value:I am not sure if I ever want to experience these exciting and partly annoying acts of this Drama.You should have watched it at least ONE time and the rest everyone should decide for themselves. You learn by watching this Drama and depending on how much "you want to review" ,I would say you should watch this Drama again.

Well I for myself have enough of the Drama!!It may appear weird but I am somehow fed up and than in the end just relieved and happy that I finished to watch this Drama here.
Now I wrote much.I am sorry about it but I just thought everyone should have the chance to know the value of this Drama here.
That´s the reason why I wrote a review to it.Sure that I loved the Drama and wanted to show it to others....was a reason for it as well(:

Both of these Japanese shows involve human experimentation and are beautifully heavy on the bromance (that also let's us all somewhat forgive plot holes).
Recommended by DarkTyrant
Dark and atmospheric Japanese sci-fi thriller dramas, which involve characters coming into opposition with another that share their face.
In Yasha they're clones, in Face Maker they exchange their face for someone else's.

    Some excellent acting here. and a story that doesn't pander to the audience. So I'm not quite sure why
    I don't rate it higher.
    I was not aware that the lead actor played both twins. Which seems silly now of course.
    He is totally convincing as both characters.

    It's a good one..the plot may be simple and very focused but it can manage to keep your attention...I like the bromance in both side...

    And the song is quite engaging to hear, well fitting to the drama theme..

    what...an opening song by Sting? And it's a Desert Rose too, i loved that song when it first came out and it still has that special feel.

      Exactly like that :)
      I am still listening to the opening song quite often now.
      It always made me look forward to watching the next episodes :D
