Attempted murder, fraud and embezzlement, illicit drugs, tax evasion and even murder? Five women convicted of various crimes and a crime-loathing female warden put aside their differences to hatch a grand plot of revenge against a handsome but crooked company CEO. But the revenge plan keeps hitting snags. All of these mature women with interesting back stories meet in a female penitentiary and band together to clear each other of unjust sentences in this blockbuster female crime story rich in laughter and tears, brilliantly merging the comedy and cheerfulness of Kudo Kankuro storytelling with serious, deeper questions of why we’re all here and what constitutes true happiness.

Girl Power and Strong Female Bond. This is how I would describe this amazing drama. I don't think there are many dramas that revolve around this 2 subjects... mixed (female and male), yes; male, yes. 100% female, no. The plot is about 5 women kidnapping a powerful man. Episode 1 is the kidnapping and till Ep. 9 all happens in the same night. Except that each episode shows flashbacks of these women when they meet in prison, start to bond and finally, to plan the kidnapping and the justice for Hime/Yusuke.

I took half a star because I truly feel like this needed an extra episode... Ep 10 felt a bit rushed.

It is a very fun drama that made me laugh several times and cried a bit over the Yusuke story. The cast is colorful, each girl is amazing, and the villain is super charming. ED song is "Showtime", by Amuro Namie. I loved it, catchy and girly.

I'll definitely rewatch this when my sister decides to watch it. Super recommended.

Makes one wants go to prison ?

Unoriginal concept. Original storytelling and story unfolding. Spot on comedy despite the somewhat heavy subject. True to anyone who’s seen work penned by Kudo Kankuro

It’s actually interesting that, other than one character, they all were guilty of their crimes. Watching them come to terms with what led them there was endearing. Being in a place away from their comfort zone and influences helped them find companionship through their true selves. By the time I was done with the drama, I loved each and every character despite their flaws.

Also, the presentation of gaslighting was frighteningly accurate. They don’t name it but it’s recognizable right away.

The acting ranges from excellent to perfectly matching the character played. I could write a whole essay about the characterization of some of the characters but my time is limited so I will leave it at “it was beautiful to watch”.

I do wonder though, is that an accurate presentation of prison in Japan? Seems too neat to be true. Life seems to go really well once all the prisoners go out into the world. Forgiveness isn’t what Japan is known for. Is it satire? Also the number of qualifications one can get made going to prison better than going to college XD

It does make it easier to watch either way.

I had a hard time going through episode 5 due to the subject of the episode. I’m glad I did. The ending outcome was satisfactory.

Highly recommended!
