So this drama is a very cool drama. It revolves around 3 men. A soldier, a yakuza, and a secretary. All of them get screwed over by the government, yakuza and military. They band together to get revenge and the way they work together to take down their enemies is really neat. They seem like an unlikely combo but they become close friends. This drama will give you plenty of laughs, it has action, and it gets pretty deep into morals, society, and corruption. It has quite a different feel then a lot of other dramas I have seen. The dialgue flows very nicely between the cast. The actors work so well together.

I had great expectations for this dorama, given it starred Nakai Kiichi and Ijima Naoko (both of whom I'd really liked in "Saigo kara Nibanme no Koi" and its sequel) and also taking into account the synopsis which made it sound really interesting. Unfortunately, there's waaaaay too much focus on form (i.e. photography, music, editing, camera movements/angles, "coolness" - Gods, I hate that word! - etc.) and waaaaaay too little focus on substance (as in, a decent script, totally lacking here!). As far as I'm concerned, it really seems like one of those crappy tv series mass-produced in Hollywood, the only relevant difference being that instead of American actors, we have Japanese ones here. Total let down imho.
