Finally started watching MOZU: Mozu no Sakebu Yoru... ( Read more... )
...and randomly getting Team Batista feels, cos not only Nishijima Hidetoshi starred in this drama.... but Gucchi, aka Itou Atsushi was in this as well. Then Ysurumi Shingo, Shimada Kyusaku... and Tori was in the movie version of the drama continuation. That aside, I love the mystery/suspense/thriller aspect of the drama. Because yes, I love this genre. And the drama adaptaton was very good.
That aside, I randomly googled other recent dramas Toru did... and some does look like more mystery genres XDD. Also, because of Mozu, I ended up trying to look for drama that had Toru in it as a cop. Which lead me to watching Ishi no Mayu and Suishou no Kodou.( Read more... )
And you know, funny enough, in a way these 3 dramas kinda ended up being the Police AU version of Team Batista gang in my mind. ( Read more... )
That said, I'm surprised at the quality of these dramas from WOWOW (even when Mozu was also a collab with TBS). In which there's a slight noir quality to the dramas. Have to say I'm looking forward to more quality dramas from WOWOW. But then again, WOWOW used to pick up some of the odd themed dramas in the past. Esp the ones based on manga.
