Generally, all mystery dramas are the same. The only thing differentiating them is the gimmick specific to the show. KimiHan is no exception. It follows a girl named Morita Sakura, who is an aspiring mystery novelist. Unfortunately, she is always refused by the same editorial company over and over. Because of this, she works a lot of weird and random part time jobs. She meets Udagawa Norio, a detective who got in only because of his family connections. Generally, he’s stupid and falls in love very easily with almost any beautiful woman he sees. He discovers that she has an amazing memory, and she begins helping him with various cases as a part-time job.

Spring 2008 Drama Previews

New season, new dramas! Here are my first and pre-impressions for some of the dramas this season.

Last Friends
It’s the story of people who have been hurt and how they are coping with it. It deals with many issues such as domestic violence and sexuality, so needless to say, this series is rather mature and serious. Not only does it have an amazing cast with Nagasawa Manami, Ueno Juri, and Eita, the story is interesting and compelling. Add to that a GREAT OP sequence and I think I’ve already decided that Last Friends is going to be my favorite of the season. And isn’t that promo images so beautiful?
