Currently Watching: Tantei No Tantei

Detective_versus_Detective-p01

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-Episode-1

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!

Currently Watching: Nobunaga Concerto

nobunaga

Wow, can I count this drama as my fifth sageuk? I mean it is a historical drama *shrugs* except that it is a Japanese historical drama. Anyone objecting my decision? Wait, wait… My own self is objecting it. Drat. My resolution was made solely for kdrama so I really can’t amend my own decision. *heads down* I am my own enemy. But, on the bright side, *perks up* this is my first Japanese historical drama in a very loooong time. I don’t recall my last jdrama of this genre, I just knew I haven’t seen it in years.

Nobunaga Concerto was never on my radar list to watch. If not because of Bel, which I can’t thank her enough, I don’t even know its existence. And if I’m not mistaken, Nobunaga Concerto is my fourth currently airing Japanese drama I’m watching this year. *pats shoulder* I’m quite impressed with myself, maybe I should include this for my 2015 drama resolution. Hmmmmm… *rubs chin*

Nobunaga Concerto is a unique adaptation from manga series of the same title. You won’t see any slapstick humor at all. The humor is in the script and I find it hilarious just reading the subs. If you decided to watch it, you better pay attention to what they say. Some are direct humor, some are so indirect you’ll only gets it once the episode is over. In my case, hours later after I finished that particular episode. Yeah, I need time to digest it. I’m a bit…. Slow *sticks her tongue out*. According to Wiki, Nobunaga Concerto, the manga, is still ongoing. Wahhhhh this tells me there will be sequel once this series ends. And we only have 11 episodes, 45 minutes long. If there will be sequel, I want it soooooooon!

As a I said earlier, Nobunaga Concerto is VERY unique. The story is centered around Saburo, a high school teenage kid who suddenly transported back to Japan’s Sengoku era. And it turns out, he met a spitting image of himself in this era and he is Nobunaga-sama. Nobunaga was surprised but took this opportunity to make Saburo as him and he left disguising himself as Saburo’s helper, Mitsuhide. Saburo led the Oda clan, after Mitsuhide’s father passed away, and he vowed to be the most humble and caring war lord in the country. Reliving the history is pretty surreal for Saburo and along his journey, he met a couple of time travelers like him too. However, his history textbook became a problem. More people want to get hold of it to know what the future lies for them. As the episode progressed, you’ll meet with Hisahide (name could be wrong). He found out Mitsuhide’s identity and took this chance to stir things up and caused ruckus to Saburo.

So how will Nobunaga Concerto ends? I hope on a higher note! I’m currently watching the last episode and I must say, I’m very impressed with this show. I doubted Shun Oguri as the main lead in the beginning. He’s too old to play a high schooler but he did it! This live action drama is one of the best dramas I’ve seen this year. This is a must watch 2014 drama. I highly recommend it, peeps!
