TV series set to look at the Japanese death penalty system
What a grim synopsis for a show. How this get past to get made is surprising me. Supposedly based on a manga, it details a rookie guard's coming of age working as a death row prison guard.
The foundation is laid down with Japan's unique system first. Then each case is presented with different type of murderers and how each deal with their sentence and how this new guard grows with each. It is slow, but fits the seriousness of the topic. It doesn't back away but deals with but victims, perpetrators and the guards.
Although a few scenes didn't ring true for me near the end. Those are minor. Well done and above average.
