Due to heavy debts incurred by CEO Yushiyuki, the owner of a small cardboard processing company was forced into bankruptcy and driven to suicide. Despite pleas from the man's family, Yoshiyuki remained unpunished by the law. Blocked by the usual legal channels, the son, Kubota Kazuma, and his cousin vow to kill the man responsible for his death. However, given that neither of them has ever killed someone, it requires a lot of planning and a lot of help to achieve the perfect crime. (Source: Lee C and HPriest at MyDramaList) Edit Translation

Though I felt that the last episode seemed a bit rushed, if I thought of the 7 episodes of Satsui No Michinori as a long movie rather than a drama, it worked out pretty good!
Despite its abrupt (in my opinion) conclusion, I really loved the journey of these two guys set out for revenge and murder who meet two cool and savvy girls who happily join in on the ride, and I even liked the way they tied things up in the end with a nice little bow!
Of course a big part of my enjoyment of this drama came from the saucy Mayu Hotta (as well as Yui Sakuma, whom I only JUST realized was Yuka in Jikuu Tantei Oyu!), the scenes with the boys interacting with them really made the show!

Project Strawberry Fair: Designing the Perfect Vengeance Plan

Satsui no Michinori caught me off-guard - in a good way. The drama is peculiar, eccentric, and, at times, relatable, even though the main characters are conspiring a murder. When the protagonists discuss the murder plan, they do it so casually. It's as though they're discussing the weather rather than plotting to murder someone. And I think that's where most of the humor lies in this drama. I've never seen anything like that with the same "feel" before.

Our two leads: Kubota Kazuma and Azuma Mitsuru, balance each other. It was interesting to see the development of their plan through their extensive and detailed discussions as to what is a good idea and what is not. Their consultations with other characters were fun to witness as well. I also love the little moments when the characters get a little side-tracked, and one scene, in particular, was too relatable.

The conclusion is satisfying. There are also some lovely scenic shots. My only gripe is that I couldn't connect with the motives presented to the supporting characters. The drama's explanation, in my opinion, was lacking. But overall, there's not much to complain about.

In short, it's a captivating miniseries with a pretty good story (nothing amazing) and excellent dialogue. This drama further exemplifies how unique Japanese dramas can be. It's undeniably a gem worth savoring.
