Originally, Tantei No Tantei was not on my watch list. I saw Bel tweeted it and got curious. She was not sure if I could watch this. The drama is too violence and she knows my limit. But since I was bored in Jakarta, I decided to give it a watch. Lo and behold, this drama got me hooked immediately. Bel is right, this drama is not for everyone. It is very… Brutal and cruel (but well deserved!), to be honest. Seriously, I have never seen crazy scenes as brutal as the ones I saw on this drama. I was shocked!
Tantei No Tantei is a drama of revenge. Rena’s dear sister was murdered by her stalker and the stalker himself is now dead. Since her sister’s death, she decided to be a detective. But what prompt her to be one since, you know, the stalker is already dead? She is in search of Death of God. Who? Death of God, one of the police force detectives in the city, is the one that alerted her the location of her sister’s death. While searching for him, she came across to some cases that crazily directly relates her to him. But each time she gets involved to these cases, her identity slowly get revealed. Detective Kubozuka is genuinely concerned of her coz she managed to get through to everything before him. He had asked her to keep her profile low but Rena can never do that. She is one feisty detective in the Anti-Detective (what an irony, isn’t it) Department and refuse to butt down and give up. I’m actually curious on who is this Death of God and what is his deal.
In this investigation, Rena is helped by Kotoha, her nearly give up assistant that knew Rena’s dead sister. But Kotoha’s sister, Ayane is one of the keys in this case interrupted Rena’s investigation. The level of violence Ayane did to Rena was unbearable to watch! Who is Ayane in this case? How deeply involved she is in this case? Is she a puppet? Hmmmm many questions I have but have yet to be addressed as I’m only 6 episodes in. Throughout, I have my suspicious on one person but I’m going to leave it as that. Are you curious? *wink*
Tantei No Tantei, also means detective versus detectives, is a 10-episode drama that is based on a 2014 novel of the same title. This high paced, highly violent and intense drama will open up your eyes to a different kind of corruption case. One detective is using all her might to get her answer while the other is going out his way for this justice. One thing for sure is that Rena is always one step ahead of Kubozuka. Will he gets his way and intercept her? Or will she work with him to resolve this case? Wow, again, so many questions flying in my head. I would recommend this drama to you if you can stomach to watch the amount of beat ing and torturing to and by Rena. She’s the bomb, I tell ya! I love her determination. It is all on her face and she carries it so strongly! Jaaaaah, just watch it! It’s a girl power drama!
