Shi no Zouki Episode 1

I was really looking forward to this cause its got 3 of my favourite actors; Koizumi Kotaro, Toyohara Kosuke aka Mr Lan Evo and Konishi Manami. So a body of a young woman is found by Koizumi Kotaro in a forest where people go commit suicide and her liver has been removed.

Mr Lan Evo is the cop who orders an autopsy on the body. Two people were injured during a scuffle and taken to a hospital where it is discovered that they were liver donor and patient. Kinpachi sensei is the doctor suspected of doing the operation.

The last story thread is that Koizumi Kotaro wrote an article about a young girl who was confined by her stalker which resulted in the girl committing suicide and him getting blamed. Yep, Japan loves blaming everyone else but the criminal.

To be honest, the first episode is pretty boring. It looks great but every revelation just makes me go "......and?". Hopefully it gets interesting for episode 2.

Did you watch the rest of the show? Did it get better?

Buck: I finished watching watching but the only thing I remember is its rather ham fisted with what it wanted to say.
