Artful and compelling Japanese drama
9 October 2018 | by DagRosSee all my reviews

It is very refreshing to watch something else than the standard kind of series we are used with. It is a different kind of storytelling in a different culture. Very addictive and unpredictable story about a man, writer of crime fiction, housing five women and getting paid 1 M Yen a month for it while he is trying to understand and uncover what is going on. It is a really great series of twelve short episodes of circa 25 min each. It combines so many qualities: its intelligent, polite, complex, soft, scary, violent etc in a unique combination you don't get watching the standard Hollywood output.

This series increased my appetite for more quality Japanese drama, thanks Netflix for bringing it up on my recommendation list

Don't miss this artful and intriguing drama !
