11 mysteries, 11 actors. Japan's favorite mystery author, the world of Higashino Keigo comes to life on screen through an assortment of short stories.


For every episode, there will be a different lead actor and story, it's themes varying from mystery to comedy to horror to human drama. Nakai Kiichi is the navigator as he takes you on a journey through each episode, seasoned with Higashino's authentic spices, failing your assumptions withvivid story composition and an even bigger betrayal before the finale.

WARNING: For those who are planning to watch this, you may find it BORING because it has a dark atmosphere that devours throughout the series. But rest assured, "dark atmosphere" doesn't mean it's not good. Perhaps it's not good vibes for the heart, no?

"THOU SHALT NOT VEX A STRANGER"

These words keeps echoing on my mind as I'm watching this while having a cup of coffee in the middle of the night. Actually, it's good to watch this in a dark room filled with silence at night. I'm not scaring you, I'm just setting up a good way to have a momentum so that you'll be able to enjoy it at the very least because.. it does sounds like an "Edgar Allan Poe" to it if you've already watch or read some of his works. If not, then if you've already encountered a dark series somewhere.

Some of episodes may be a bit too draggy but full of surprises at the end of each story. There may be some good or bad but the tension between emotion and reason extend its influence beyond those protagonists. Eventhough "SUSPECT" is already obvious, it's really an unpredictable twist that keeps you thinking what they've done or ask yourself this:

"Did your 'Detective Intuition' tell you that?" :D

Darkest tangle that leads you to a World of Dark Tales. Some of its OST is good as if it's breaking the silence and some are not that good. This drama is dark and measured, it often illustrates people to dramatic event that explore the darkness of human interaction.

And.. again, I'm not forcing you to watch this one and I can understand why it has low ratings in Japan though those actors didn't manage to save their sinking ship but I highly recommend you watch some of its episode I've seen that good so far. This may be pointlessly obscure or ridiculously mystical but it deserves a good ratings in other way or somehow.. I think so. :)

This is an underrated drama so I decided to make a review about it.

First of all, if you like detective/mystery stories, this drama is definitely for you. Every episode's case is different from one another. Every storyline is unique and exciting--there is always a twist at the end of each story.

Another plus factor for this one is the very good and entertaining narration before the start of each case. And also the casts in each stories are already veteran in the field of acting (like Miura Haruma, Toda Erika etc)

Some of the stories also made me cry. Others are funny and some will make you sympathize with the leads.

Overall, this is a must watch! So you better start watching it! ^__^
