I started this thread since Eng Softsubs are now available thanks to shioki, I suspect people will need a place to discuss the series. :D

It's a delight to see Shinohara Ryoko on screen with Oizumi Yo again after Haken no Hinkaku. :)
I suspect that Okada Masaki's character will slowly get attracted to Ryoko's character. No complaints here. She's good with younger guys too! (Aneko, anyone? Even in Tsuki no Koibito, her scenes with Matsuda Shota are cute!)
In case you are wondering, the person in my avatar is Lee Taemin from SHINee. :wub:

Somehow, Shinohara are always paired with younger guys in her more popular dramas. :D
I guess it would be the same in this drama too (this is afterall, her first lead after the hiatus). And I don't see any potential female character in that investigation place to pair up with Okada.

On the contrary, I like her scenes with her sister too.
She was funny when she found out about that '92 wine. All that begging for the old guy to take the pig + Shinohara's reaction.
Btw it's anego.

I quite enjoyed the 1st epi. Although ryoko still reminds me of her role in tsuki no koibito (I think it's mainly because of the similar appearance, the hairstyle (not changed) and clothes too! (i mean the plaid shirts and all) and she's acting rugged (in a way) but all of the above makes me love the character even more.

And the comedy with the sister (a delight to see the transformation from the serious role in Zettai Reido to a cabaret girl in this one) total awesomeness. :lol

Overall, it's good. And thanks for the fast subs as well. Without subs, I don't think I'll be watching.

i downloaded all available episodes a while ago.Mainly I choose this drama because ryoko-san is in it.since mukodono, i collected many of her works like haken no hinkaku,anego,tsuki no koibito,at home dad,hikari to tomo ni and Yankee Bokou ni Kaeru.

this morning i started with the first episode.i'd like to say that the plot was pretty interesting and the actors were cool.definitely not a waste and very well worth watching.

Ogon gets better as the show goes on. imo, Ep5 had the best case among all 5 :)

Don't forget about Unfair...it's also one of her best drama.

I've been really enjoying this show. I just love the chemistry the cast has!

But the end of episode 5 made me worried...
Actually they've been implying since the beginning that something bad was going to happen but the end of episode 5 seemed to be really foreboding :pale: And in the preview for the next episode it showed that Myouchin's "promotion" was to be the head of an empty department (I think). I wonder who was responsible for that? It seems to be Kurume.

I bet stuff happens and the team ends up disbanded but get together again to solve a big case in the end. Just a guess :P

I'm liking this drama quite a bit =D
I wanted to ask... does anyone know what the ending song is?
I'd greatly appreciate it~ Thanks =D

[edit] NVM, it's Yuna Ito's Mamette Ageta for anyone that's also wondering~

in ep6, for those who have watched
Don't you think it's too easy and unbelievable that Kudou wanted them to rest the case just because he liked the professor back in his student days and the Souri(Minister? or PM? not sure) thought highly of her?

It doesn't go well with his honest and straight-forward character. or is it just me?
things were pretty episodic that I considered stopping watching but i'm glad that I continue til ep7. things got exciting now, cant wait for the next ep :D

Episode 6...
I agree, that was a bit of a reach. It would have been better if it had been someone closer to him, like maybe a professor he had actually had and been super close to or a family member or something like that.

glad to see i'm not alone here :)

In episode 7 though,
It was more believable things Kudou did. Others would have done the same to save loved ones.
Honestly, I was surprised at first how everybody didn't appreciate what he did.

nobody's watching this series?

finished final episode
All this Kudou's deal is a joke. I believe Okada-kun must feel regret signing up for this.
Too bad I really like all the cast here. Ryoko, the 3 guys and even mame (Namase)!
NTV should learnt from this mistake and make another series with the same cast with more worthy story/scripts!

Sorry for my "rant and leave". but how this place is so unpopulated must be saying something,no? :P

I'm watching...though I'm just slightly behind :) But I finally finished it.
The whole series was a joke. The cases was badly thought out, so I'm simply watching this for Shinohara and Oizumi (my fav Haken pairing)...well that's the only reason why I started this in the first place though :P Taxes are boring....BUT they had to give us an open ending :(

Yup, I agree with that Kudo part. How can he change so suddenly...and the evil smile in ep8 is really out of character imo.

Basically, the script sucks...and I'm worried about Shinohara's acting career now. After her return from giving birth, she acted in TsuKoi, Ogon, and both have real terrible plot...her acting was solid in both though.
