This is actually my first time writing a review, but I really want this drama to be noticed more!

I understand that this might not be to everyone's taste, so if you're looking for a Rom-Com or something light I suggest you watch something else.
On the other hand, even if it is titled as tragedy it's not THAT tragic in my opinion. Okay, maybe a little tragic, too, but not everyone-dies-in-the-end-tragic.

This show surprised me from the start, taking a direction I didn't expect, really making me wonder where we were going.
After watching the last episode I can say that the whole story was very well thought-out and in the end everything made sense.
It did a very good job at surprising once more in the end, when I already thought I had it all figured out.

I also realy liked the dark mood and the tension, especially in conversations between Mako/Satsuki and the detective.
Both Takei Emi and Kiritani Kenta did an awesome job. I have seen Takei Emi several times before, but each time it feels like a completely different character. This time she managed to play two characters at the same time in such a way that the audience is always able to tell the twins apart even when the line starts to blur.

Lastly, I set the rewatch value very low, because it's the kind of drama that won't be as interesting anymore if you know what will happen. It's the surprises that are catchy, but you won't be surprised the second time round.

I know it's a bit early to write a review since so far there's only been 6 episodes but I couldn't resist since its so good :)

There are a few slow bits here and there but everything else makes up for it ! Very good cast, you really sympathize with both Mako and Satsuki... Takei Emi does an outstanding job portraying them. I really like the intensity Kiritani Kenta brings to his character to.

The music is also really good, it enlightens the melancholy atmosphere throughout the drama ! I'm not that good at reviews but hope this encourages anyone reading to watch this drama :)
