Matsumoto Mao is supposed to become the new medical examiner and visit the USA at the age of 10. While there, she is to study advanced placement 3rd year Forensics. She has an IQ of over 150. Suddenly, she becomes like an ordinary person, confusing everybody except Kyoko. A rush of bodies come in for autopsy. A middle-aged man who apparently fell for a scaffolding at a construction site comes in. Mao begins the autopsy without a speck of the days' exhaustion showing. She discovered that he did not simply hit his head while falling. (Source: wiki.d-addicts) Edit Translation

I have to be honest right from the start, while I am a fan of multiple actors and actresses in this series, I did not watch this show for its cast; however, I did watch this show for a rare reason, at least for me: for its synopsis. I'm a fan of medical, crime, mystery, thriller, police/detective dramas and this one appealed to me immediately!

If the story alone is enough to draw in someone as picky as me, then you add in the amazing cast, this show must be a hit (lol). Speaking of the cast, hearing Takei Emi be so unemotional was something I was not used to at all! It took me a few episodes to get used to, too. Listening to Sasaki Kuranosuke speaking in Osaka (i believe it was) dialect was one of the most amazing things I'm ever heard. Watching each person of this fantastic cast work as a team, even though they were sometimes at odds, was fascinating, to say the least! I also found a few wonderful new actors to follow!

I laughed, I cried, I got angry, I worried, I was curious, I learned, and I felt as if I was part of each case. The stories were an even 50/50 balance of typical stories for a police/medical examiner/mystery/crime drama and stories that I've never witnessed before. I think that may have been a strength and a weakness for this show; it could have been longer than 8 episodes, but it was completed wonderfully with a finale that I never saw coming.

I would like to see more of this story, if not more of an apathetic, unemotional Takei Emi and an eccentric, thick dialect speaking Sasaki Kuranosuke. This drama does seem a tad underrated to me, but maybe that's just because I haven't noticed it myself. I believe this show could have lasted longer than 8 episodes and would have loved to see more of this entire team of medical examiners and police working together!

When i try to watch the first episode i think that this drama is just like another J-drama but what make me want to watch it until the end of the drama is because the story is quite good, the story will makes you wonder what really happen with the lead family, and not always dark ( although its about coroner but they do the job like it was a fun job not something scary )

the lead is a quite type so she doesn't have to many lines, but her acting is pretty good.
the story will tell about her being a super stubborn person and no one can stop her ( i dont like it about her but what can i do ) and in the end she always right, so the other will not like her in the beginning.

and the mystery in this drama is a litlle boring and not too shocking ( i think ),

if you like mystery drama without something dark you will like it, and if i can finish this you than you will.
