I have no idea where to start off with this review... The show itself is just... Unbelievably amazing! When I read the synopsis and saw the cast, I was not expecting this show to be what it is at all!! Do not let the synopsis fool you, this is a show about laws, however, it is so much more than just laws!

I have watched so many police, crime, detective, lawyer, mystery/thriller genre dramas that sometimes they all seem to run together, however, this show does such an amazing job of standing on its own and being an extraordinary standout from the crowd! This show is surreal in and of itself, do not let the synopsis fool you into thinking this is just some boring law show, please... It is everything but!

Within this show, I have learned so much. Between where I am from (US) and Japan, there are multiple differences in the criminal justice system, from what I know just offhand; when I watched this show I have to say that my knowledge was tested, beaten down, rebuilt, in some ways even reversed, and I even gained some new insights as to what I believe and my what my thoughts on right or wrong are.

This show is harsh in some ways, almost downright scary; but this show has a lesson for anyone who chooses to watch with 100% completely focused attention, genuine feelings, and sincere respect. This show, in its entirety, teaches so much about human integrity, human life, relationships, honesty, and humanity. This show will stick with me for the longest time. It is a once in a lifetime show that not to be missed!

Amazing!!!!

I have always loved Kaname Jun because he is an actor, not just a pretty face. He is the reason why I picked up this show and ended up watching all the episodes in one go.

Since episode one it will grip your interest. The story line doesn’t get boring at all! It just keeps you hanging on to it, wanting you to keep watching.

Superb acting! You will feel the chills and also you will be sobbing. This drama has all the right elements. I definitely would want to rewatch it again and again. Ending and each case ends in such a satisfying way. There are no filler scenes and storyline which will annoy you.

One of the best story lines as well. It isn’t just about law but about people. It will change the way you see things and even perceive.

This drama is highly recommended as it is one of the best I’ve seen (and trust me when I say so because I’ve only been watching JDrama for 20 years now). This drama should be highest rated, higher than high school chic flicks like hanazakari, hanadan (I loved them too).
