Storyline

Kohei Kuryu is a former juvenile delinquent who drops out of junior high and goes on to earn a high school equivalent diploma. After passing the law board exams, Kuryu becomes a prosecutor. Not your typical prosecutor, which is quickly seen through the clothes that he wears, Kuryu possesses quick instincts and a kind of cleverness that only someone raised on the streets could have. Maiko Amamiya is a shrewd public prosecutor who has her eyes set on passing the exam to become a deputy prosecutor and tries her best to be noticed by her boss. Kuryu, on the other hand, after earning a reputation for doing top-notch work, is transferred to Amamiya's division, and finally opens his eyes to the possibility of promotion. Unfortunately, his unprecedented work behavior abruptly brings things to a halt. Although earning a reputation as a bad apple, the influence from Kuryu's strong pursuit of justice slowly begins to change things around him. This drama is filled with it all; love, laughs and ...

Legal Drama
8 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

The story of a Public Prosecutor names Kuryu Kohei, a young man driven by his past to help people find justice in a world that is not always so kind to the victims of crime. Finding him in an office with several other lawyers, most of which have flawed personalities in one form or another, Kuryu has to impact on them his sense of justice. With unorthodox investigations of crime scenes and the ability to pick up on the smallest detail in an almost Perry Mason like fashion, Kuryu with the help of his law clerk Amamiya Maiko, will dispense justice for those who need it most. Not to imaginative or ground breaking drama, but an enjoyable watch. Unlike American Legal Dramas, it takes a much less serious look at the working of a legal system while still giving trying to impart same moral lesson.
