Weird but interesting - yet not for everyone^^

It took me a few episodes to get used to this drama. To the humor, which was dark, bloody and also more on the dumb-funny side. And to to all the blood... that was a little much. The vibes in general reminded me of a parody. :D
But after I figured out what's going on, I actually liked it. There was one "case" per episode, and they were pretty interesting. There was a twist at the end of each case to which I was always looking forward to.
I also liked the ML. After the first half they added some depth to his character but the drama itself is neither deep nor serious.

Still, there were lots of things that didn't make sense. But somehow I feel like most of it was intentional. Like they used it as their "style". The last episode was especially senseless. On the other hand, everyone can decide for themselves what it might mean...or if it has any meaning at all.^^ It makes you question the whole drama tho xD You decide ~

The review and comments on this drama are quite negative. But I'm glad I wasn't influenced, and gave it a try. I was pretty much invested even. Didn't skip anything. It was interesting for me.

Though, the humor and also the violence are definitely not for everyone. Be aware.^^

Giver: Fukushu no Zoyosha left me thinking : "What was that?!" Okay, the drama starts awfully wierd, with this crazy psycho trying to bring down a building full of people, while taking hostages. Things do not getter better as the drama progrecess. No, they get worse. Somehow, some cases were kind of interesting. Although, most of the theme was just upsetting. And the ending was just horible, with those shots over the main characters shoulder for dramatic emphasis. In the end, there wasn't any real meaning to the story. Why on earth Ryo Yoshizawa choose this one, is beyond me. His performance was actually good, especially in the final episodes. But, the drama was just not good. At least the music suited the mood of revenge...
