Higashino Keigo Mysteries ep 6


The worst acting I've seen from Nagasawa Masami aka Miss Show me your Legs. I can't complain about her wearing a very short black dress to a funeral but combined with the acting it felt like I was watching a midnight dorama. As seen from Bunshin, outside of playing cute, Masami just can't pull it off. Serious and heavy emotional roles are not her forte.


As for the series itself, all six episodes have been disappointing. There might be a good episode or two to come but I have little faith and little time to scavenge for a good episode so I'm dropping Higashino Keigo Mysteries.

I agree that many of the mysteries are not very good, but the worst has to be Nakai Kiichi's segments. Total waste of time. If Nakai is really going around complaining about the show's ratings well that would be ironic.

Whether it is the medium (only 45 minutes each week to introduce characters and tell a story), the writing, or the acting is another question. In Ep6 they were clearly going for a mix of light-hearted and sad, but it just felt awkward.

Ep11 with Suzuki Kyoka is the only episode I consider worth watching. Unfortunately by that time it was too late. 1 out of 11 with so many stars is still a letdown.

I'm amazed that you made it to ep6!
I gave up after 15 minutes...

I stopped watching after the first episode. :/

HAHAHA Miss show me your legs... that's all that she does. But for some reason she has zero sex appeal. It's like she's still in Dragon Zakura with her bad perm, acting awkward.

very dismal series and a shame to Higashino Keigo's name. i didn't make it past 10minutes of this Nagasawa Masami episode. but i'm glad i held out for Toda Erika's, that one was really eerily good.
