探偵の探偵 / Tantei no Tantei (Detective versus Detective)
Watched this based on Winner san's referral above, and really enjoyed
this one. Keiko Kitagawa rocks this role royally, and Haruna Kawaguchi
turned in a fantastic performance.
Keiko's character is this fantastically fit and brave young woman who
is seeking to find the corrupt detective who set up the death of her younger sister
(Played in flashback scenes by Kyoko Yoshine).
Keiko's character fights like a lion, and has mad MacGuyver improvising skills,
but also is an extremely vulnerable character plagued with psychological issues.
Haruna's character starts off as a somewhat timid character with a very
submissive, get along to go along character, but gets hardened by the harsh
experiences she endures due, in part, to Keiko's recklessness.
Great overall cast, shoutout to veteran actor Yusuke Santamaria, who plays an arrogant rival detective,
and Takahiro Miura who plays a widowed cop with a young daughter who misses her mom.
And Mugi Kadowaki leaves a strong impression with her role
Towards the end of the series....
Really a fine drama, worth a watch.
Keiko goes full MacGuyver
