“Legal High” is an exceptional legal comedy. The story seeks to adopt the unorthodox aspects of litigators as its main theme and presents us a combination of peculiarity and logicality. Audacious humor, whimsical characters, eccentric litigation, hilarious encounters, fanciful mannerism and outrageous ridicules in every episode make this drama highly entertaining.

The main attraction of this drama is definitely the satires. The writers are commendable for being able to continue the bold use of candid humor throughout the drama without making it revolting or tiring at any point. This drama takes in many typical elements like-naive main girl, arrogant main guy, evil opponents, traumatic past etc. - smites them with absurd derision and serves as a great amusement to the person savoring it!

Another good point is the attention paid to the legal details. Although the principle selling point was to be the humor, the writers did not forget to focus just as much on legalism as to be expected in a legal drama.

The characters are simply outstanding. The lead character Komikado is whacky, cynical, wasteful and indulgent. He is not only the center source of interest and excitement but also of contempt and resentment. The preposterous remarks delivered by him are unbelievable and unforgettable.Mayuzumi as an upright, honest lawyer has nothing surprising to offer but her existence is certainly indispensable in emphasizing the contrast with Komikado and maintaining the balance of craziness with rationality. The supporting characters are equally capricious and funny and enhance the pleasing power of the series.

The cast is exquisite. Sakai Masato has done a splendid job in the role of Komikado which is entirely different form his past images. He is so magnificently convincing in this drama that it’s impossible to imagine anyone else to be more fitting for this role. I liked the acting of Aragaki Yui here more than in any other dramas I’ve seen so far. Satomi Kotaro, Koike Eiko, Namase Katsuhisa, Taguchi Junnosuke -all are impressive and persuasive in their respective roles.

Overall it an excellent drama and if you are in the mood to watch something that will make you laugh out loud in every episode then Legal High is a must for you.

I just finished watching the final episode and i'm really sad to see this one end! I began this drama with a lot of skepticism (i get bored easily of crime procedurals/legal dramas) but after 11 great episodes, i'm glad i stuck with it.

memorable leads, memorable supporting cast and a memorable story makes this drama my favorite of the sprint 2012 season!

if you long for a wacky but clever comedy to keep you in stitches, this is the drama for you.
