The show is based on the "Jiu" suspense novel series by Honda Tetsuya. Motoko (Kuroki) is a fierce, physically capable investigator with a strong battle instinct, while Misaki (Tabe) is more intellectual, kind-hearted, and naive. The two of them are both working to track down Jiu, the ringleader responsible for a series of brutal crimes.

This drama was pretty good. At first, it was a bit boring. But with the mystery of the case and Jiu's random appearances, you just have to keep watching. I have some complaints though, the way it ended was just, I don't know, not likable? :/ And I'm pretty sure this drama would have been better if Jiu appeared more. I mean, the drama is named after him. -__-

The acting was absolutely outstanding. Kuroki Meisa portrayed Izaki's character perfectly, she actually ended up being my favorite character.

The music... er, I really didn't enjoy having Lady Gaga's 'On the Edge of Glory' being played every few seconds. They played it on the most dramatic moments. -.-

I'd recommend this drama to those who enjoy action and mystery. It's not super great but it's worth watching.

Sorry if this was a pretty bad review, this is my first review. xD

i really enjoyed the mystery in the plot. the balance of how much action they had was perfect. not too much or too little. even if your not an action kind of person you can still enjoy this drama. it would have been nice if they had more scenes with jiu however not showing him too many times did add too the mystery
