National Audit Bureau member Matsudaira Hajime (Tsutsumi Shinichi), Torii Tadako (Ayase Haruka) & Asahi (Okada Masaki) travel from their homebase of Tokyo to the city of Osaka. Their mission is to discover any financial irregularities & to ensure the correct use of federal money in the Osaka city government. Their initial audits go smoothly, but things turn more interesting once they enter the Karahori shopping district - the area with a long history reaching back to the Meiji era.
The trio of auditors encounter Sanada Koichi (Nakai Kiichi), who runs a tasty okonomiyaki (Japanese pancakes) restaurant and his son Daisuke (Morinaga Yuki), who wants to be a girl. There's also Daisuke's best friend Hashiba Chako (Sawaki Ruka), a tomboyish girl who protects Daisuke at school from bullying. The auditors then inspect the H.R.H. Foundation, an organization set out to preserve Osaka's historical castles. Although their initial inspection doesn't turn out anything suspicious, it will a short while later. After the trio leave the H.R.H. Foundation and head for Koichi Sanada's restaurant for lunch. When they arrive, Matsudaira Hajime realizes that he left his cellphone at the H.R.H. Foundation. When Hajime returns to the H.R.H. Foundation he discovers that the office is now completely empty (when before it was full of workers), the phones in the office are not connected & the desk drawers are empty!
A full blown investigation is initiated by Matsudaira Hajime and they soon make a startling realization that the whole city of Osaka is running a coverup. A 400 year old secret held by the city of Osaka is about to be revealed... Add Synopsis In Portuguese
Cast & Credits
there were moments that i enjoyed but there were also moments which i felt was lacking (yes boring boring), i felt that the movie did not bring out the true potential of the plot as the ending was just not fully developed and there were confusion as well at some parts, in addition parts of it was unnecessary
one particular aspect that i wished the directors did differently would be seriously the background music, totally weird and unbalanced.. argh
i liked the way that the mystery started out, it actually made me quite interested and thus i watched till the end
the actors were well selected in my opinion, each had a mysterious side, well only Ayase Haruka was typical to her characters she plays normally (no mystery really and kinda like her character in Hotaru no hikari ^^)
If you liked Da Vinci code, you might enjoy this ones as well though it's not as dynamic and attractive in a way as Da Vinci was
