Salaryman Fukase Kazuhisa graduated from a famous university but his life is very ordinary and unremarkable. His only hobby – if it can be called that – is drinking coffee. Coffee, in fact, leads him to Mihoko Ochi, who becomes his girlfriend. Then one day, Mihoko receives a mysterious letter which consists of a single line, “Kazuhisa Fukase is a murderer.” Fukase’s instinct tells him that the time has finally come to face “that incident” 10 years ago. One winter 10 years ago, his good friend Hirosawa Yuki died in an unfortunate accident during a snowboarding trip with his university classmates Tanihara Yasuo (Ichihara Hayato), Asami Kosuke , Murai Takaaki and Murai’s younger sister Asuka. However, there is a big secret hidden in that accident. Letters are also sent to Tanihara, Tanihara and Murai who also share in this secret, and even they are hit by a series of incidents. Fukase decides to confront the truth of the past in order to protect the people dear to him.

Cast & Credits
The reason I am giving it 5 stars is because the acting was good, and it was quite suspenseful for the first 6-7 episodes. It's just that the remaining 3 episodes absolutely ruined the whole experience for me.
With a very, very good adaptation, "Reverse" surpasses expectations, a well-built, centered plot struck me. At no point has the thriller been in the background, there are ten consistent episodes that give segment and chronology an adaptation if not the best one I've ever seen. The cast is also to be congratulated, always present and all explored in one form or another. The cinematography had its merits by the external ones, already the positioning of the cameras was a little slow, but in general the soundtrack did its paper. Great drama!
