Finally we can write reviews on this one, .. cause it's excellent.
This is a dramady about a recent optimistic lawyer grad ending up working for a somewhat crass, morally corrupt but street smart lawyer. And of course this firm always end up facing their rival big firm where he practiced before.
The cases are interesting with some actually resolving outside of court so it's not same of court battle in the last 10min of each. I really like Masato Sakai,he with the ridiculous hair, bullet rate speech gives an intentionally needed over the top character. So the newbie balance it off with her righteousness and optimism.
Near the end there is a case on water/environmental issue and one of Masato's speech was very very well written but yet delivered in a light speed rate - in the style of his character.
