I was randomly watching japanese dramas on youtube when I accidentally saw this one. I heard about it before and skipped it a lot of times thinking It'd be boring.

I was really bored so I tried this one. I got to admit, I was HELL WRONG. I should really stop judging dramas by their plot >___< there was more into it which really made me want to watch it continuously.

A read more drama that has a lot of "something" inside it and not just "air". Try it. You won't regret it. Well, If you think this is boring then move along and you'll find yourself watching it. I guarantee it.

This show has got to be one of the best out there. I loved the whole good vs evil spin they put on it. They really make you think about the difference between good and evil, are they really so different? Isn't it true you can't have one without the other? I felt very sorry for the guy who had the hand of god. The only thing I didn't like about this read more show was how it ended, they could have done better. I highly recommend this show.

Both of these are suspense dramas and deal with the devil concept. The female lead also reminds me of a female version of Serizawa Naoto.

Both dramas are about a man with a "godhand", although Orthros no Inu is less medical and more suspenseful where it explores more of the other side of such power - that such a hand, as much as it can give life, can also take life. Both are interesting form their respective perspectives.

    I enjoyed this drama and found it quite interesting. The story was unique and the portrayal of the two protagonists as opposites personalities to their gifts was a nice touch, and as the story develops we find out more about each, and how their gifts affected them. What I really liked was the moral dilemmas that were central to the plot: what is good and evil? are we our brother's keepers? what is right and what is wrong? how do we deal with the shades of grey to these questions. The only thing I would have wished for was more romance. Watch it, this is really a good drama..and not that long! :-)

    T^T It was an amazing story. I thought it was a little slow at one part but the end had me crying a lot. The plot was good and the characters acting skills were also good.
