Furuhata Ninzaburo eps 7+8
Episode 7 turned out to be the worst one so far because the correlation between the moon being lifted up and the murder was too flimsy. The killer could have easily denied it. Fortunately for Furuhata, the killer was a man of honour and had already decided to give up to prevent the props master from taking the fall. I guess it was supposed to be a sentimental ending but Furuhata didn't really have decent proof.
On the other hand, ep 8 guest starring the Iron Chef guy was superb. Furuhata had to sweat and while I was dreading another flimsy behaviour deduction, it turned out to be an interesting and desperate trick by Furuhata. I liked that he had an explanation for the killer not to notice the person behind him.
Four more episodes to go and I am still enjoying this series. Even episode 7 was pretty well down until the WTF ending. Noticed that people downloading the subs have dropped off. What a shame. They don't make doramas like this anymore.
