jdorama: Tokyo Scarlet

Hmmmm siyempre di naman lahat napapanood ko eh maganda. There were some, let’s say just watchable. hahaha Story was simple, Tokyo Metro Police was kinda hurt about a comment that their office has no female top official and they need a good PR for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics. 

They created a new team, NS department, pagkakatanda ko New Service ata ibig sabihin nun, headed by a veteran detective Izumi and assembled her team leading by An (their somewhat called muse pero ok na detective din) with others. So, ayun na, solving crimes kahit natatapakan nila ang first division and there, in the end capturing the real criminal.

9 episodes of somewhat fun and action episodes. Wala naman sobrang galing dito except siguro yun last episode saka yun episode  na about sa fast food employee na napatay. Yun lang natripan ko and others just ok or not good enough. Pero it’s not all bad because the cast made their presence felt kahit yun chief na nagbuo ng team, ok yun role niya even his episode. Two characters stand out, one was Munesuke (played by Namase Katsuhisa, damn great supporting actor, mapa principal sa gokusen hanggang ngayon sa Doctor’s affairs, galing! Veteran actor great!) at siyempre, may one of the new, ehem crushes An (played by Mizukawa Asami). I think first time niya magplay ng detective in a jdorama. I don’t know. hehe Kahit di naman sobrang stand out yun acting niya, eh ok naman siya as lead and maganda talaga siya. Yun lang. hahaha Nag back track kasi ako ng mga series na naglead siya, at nakataon isa to at marami pang iba.

Well, sana naimprove nila yun mga cases dito, kung sana simple cases pero dapat matindi yun mga criminal pero parang hindi naman. Lalo na yun episode na manga writer na gusto lumipat ng city, weird story and bad ending. Geez. Kung fun story pala, sana medyo todo comedy na lang, not half comedy/fun then less action.  One example na todo comedy, Kid’s police! Bad trip, first episode pa lang nakita ko at nahanap, nakakatawa na! Kahit well, deadly yun mga criminal.

Sana ganun na lang ang route pero well, they did not do it. Tama lang na 6.8% ang rating niya, not suprising, pero nakakagulat eh after episode 9, aba tapos na! hehe Abrupt ending. Siguro low ratings and tight budget, tinigil na agad.

Anyway, still I’m gushed over Asami! Dating niya parang Red Scarlet, I don’t know, just a beauty to watch. Ah bakit pala tokyo scarlet, hmmm nasa first episode. Nothing important kung bakit ganun ang title.

Not good. Almost a waste of time. Pero if fan ni Asami, not bad. =)
