This drama is fantastic, I just had to throw it out there. The series is only episodes love, with run times of 45 minutes per episode, but it’s worth every minute. I sadly had to watch it on Kissasian.com because neither Viki nor Dramafever carried it. The series is based on “Himura Hideo Series” by Arisu Arisugawa, a novel written in 1992.
The concepts is quite simple and tell me if you’ve heard this on before. We follow Himura Hideo (Saito Takumi), a criminologist, and Arisugawa Arisu (Kubota Masataka), a mystery novelist, as the solve crimes in tandem with police. Himura’s abilities are likened to those of Sherlock Holmes, And Arisugawa is the beloved Watson. Their dynamic and wit between the two of the characters is fantastic and I love the feel of the show. There is one main plot that follows through the show, but the solve a few individual cases along the way.
If you can find a place to stream these it’s a must see in my books. I also want to learn Japanese really badly now just to read the books. They have sadly not been translated into one of the 2 languages I do talk *pouts*
