And here's the new teaser as well.  I'm excited!  Been awhile since I've last seen Oguri Shun & of course the drama already seems to pull me in :D

Hmm, so far.. the story hasn't really pulled, pulled me in much yet.  It's watchable but there isn't a "BAM" moment yet for me.  The first episode felt a bit slow but like I said, it's watchable though :).
It's really nice to see Shun back onscreen again <3

I like it. It's a procedural, so it's not very big on character development, but I'm fine with that. Some of the cases are interesting, and although I'd prefer it if the victims didn't reveal their killers right away, it is interesting to see Oguri's straight-arrow character start bending the law to catch the suspects. I can't believe it's already ending this Sunday because I feel like it just started, but that's Japanese dramas for you, I guess.

Must say I enjoyed this a lot. Despite the spirits revealing their killer, I am still impressed. Reality really hit me hard in the last episode.
