Bengoshi no Kuzu ep 5

That looks like Wakui Emi!

Best ep so far in the series and the show gets the shot in the arm that it needed: Kuzu gets a daughter! Kuzu is a great character but he just doesn't play off well against Takeda san. Takeda's too naive and their good guy/bad guy act just gets old.

Race Queens galore!

The whole getting a daughter thing brings out Kuzu's softer side and allows him to do one thing: be more immoral. The writers can push the boundaries without making Kuzu look like a villian. And Mizuki-chan can be used as foil for the underlying flirting between Kuzu and Kato-san.

This ep reaffirms that this is Kuzu's show and everyone else is irrelavent. Hopefully they'll do an episode featuring Hoshin Aki's character but I doubt it. I'm looking forward to seeing Kuzu play the reluctant father for the rest of the series though I fear it'll be minor. My guess is Kuzu will use her and play up the single father role to score some chicks. :)
