Kazuya Takano is a former surgeon, but he now works as a lawyer. He is a genius in terms of intelligence and reasoning. He gets scouted by the Shidanzaka Law Office. The founder of the law firm suddenly died, and the lawyer daughter of the late founder brought Kazuya Takano to help rebuild Shidanzaka Law Office. Kazuya Takano begins to work with four other lawyers in room 1 of the law office. They are in charge of criminal affairs. The four lawyers all come from different backgrounds and have different personalities. The other four attorneys are the late founder's daughter, who is a rookie, a lawyer with an inferiority complex and who used to be a NEET, a prideful lawyer who used to be a judge, and a lawyer with a compassionate mind who used to be a detective.

as near to perfect as humanly possible

I don't give many 10 star ratings, but this drama was as near to perfect as a crime/law drama can be. While Kamenashi is definitely the headliner, had they cast a different, equally talented actor, I would have still given it 10 stars. The story is just that compelling to me. If there's one downside it's that I need to watch the drama again to fully grasp the nuances of the plot. It's the problem that happens when binging a crime drama, everything runs together and becomes a little muddled, but that's more my fault than the drama's fault. I just didn't want to stop watching.

A few thoughts right now are these.

It's moving to have a Japanese drama depict a Christian minister with such kindness and honesty. That's not how they're depicted in western entertainment, so I love that she really was as kind, compassionate, generous, understanding, and all of the things that a pastor should be. She was an amazing character and it touched me that she was designed that way on purpose.

If Kamenashi is capable of this type of performance, that's what I want to see from him every single time he steps in front of the camera. The energy, the passion, the obvious connection he made to the character he was playing. He brought Takano-san to life in a way that I haven't seen from him in a few years. That spark that makes him an incredible actor was there, again, finally. I didn't realize how much I missed it until I watched Seigi no Tenbin.

I have to give a shout-out to Kitayama Hiromitsu. I haven't seen him in anything else and a lot of idol actors get a little bit of a bad rap, but he definitely piqued my interest. He gave a deeply compelling supporting role performance as one of the lawyers working under Takano.

It was also fun for see Kamenashi and Aya Omasa reunited. They're both far more mature than when they were in Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge together, but I couldn't help smiling at the good memories I have of that show whenever they were in the same scene for Seigi no Tenbin.

The end message is that if there's even the smallest chance that someone can be rehabilitated, then we should at least try. There's this message of hope, of potential, of even forgiveness and moving on from hatred and revenge that just really spoke to me. I love Seigi no Tenbin. I think it's brilliant, superior to Red Eyes which was fun in its own way, and it's inspiring to see Kamenashi take on roles like Takano with so many emotional nuances and do them well. I'm excited to see what the future holds for his acting career. May he continue to make amazing choices.

Not bad, but a little disapointed with the way the story is told...

Could have been amazing if delivers what I was expecting…

STORY – interesting, with a mystery to solve that make a successful surgeon to become a lawyer. So, we are always waiting for the final punch, the great finale…
The cases that the weird workers of room 1 deal are not as interesting as they could have been, the story promise but don’t deliver, at least for me.

ACTING / CAST – I like the pragmatic and genius lawyer, the naïve daughter of his mentor, etc. But that’s it.

MUSIC – I really cannot recall any song, so for me it was ok I guess.

REWATCH - I know the ending and it is not as satisfying as I would expect. I will never watch this again, just because there are so many interesting things way better.

OVERALL – the mistake was mine. I read the synopsis and I thought that it will be a good mystery with a great ending. It wasn’t so bad, but I was not pleased with it. For me, even understanding Takano’s love for Amamiya, the ending was not good. 5 years investigating, thinking and living with that mystery… and to behave in a different way all of a sudden was strange for me…
