Review – Anone

Drama: Anone

Broadcast date: Jan 10, 2018 – Mar 21, 2018

Synopsis (from
The story begins with a girl who has no family, strayed from the right path and lost her perspective in life, meeting a much older woman. Both of them were deceived, betrayed and have lost faith in other people, but somehow they gravitate towards each other and so the older woman gives shelter to the girl. Triggered by a certain incident, the two of them eventually find true humanity.

This drama is about the wonderful friendship of 4 persons of different ages, and how they are sucked into the world of crime.

It has everything — drama, romance, suspense, action, comedy and crime, all meshed together amazingly into this excellent drama. And there are touches of delightful quirkiness as well.

Review – Unnatural

Drama: Unnatural

Broadcast date: Jan 12, 2018 – Mar 16, 2018

Synopsis (from
A story-a-week episodic medical mystery that treats the theme of reality changing when faced with imminent death. Mystery and exhilarating human drama unfold against the backdrop of the “unnatural death institute”, or “UDI”. For example, the body of a young man is brought into the UDI lab one day; his cause of death attributed to ischemic heart disease in which blood fails to be conveyed to the heart. But the victim’s parents are puzzled by the freak nature of their son’s death and turn to medical coroner Mikoto, to find out why. Together with her lab technician partner, Yuko Shoji, and rookie medical recorder, Rokuro, they examine the body for a possible drug poisoning and then learn that another female colleague of the deceased man has just died suddenly.

Quick review:
This is an episodic mystery drama(a different case for each episode). But it also has a main mystery arch that spans the whole series.

Unsurprisingly, there is enough humor in this drama to lighten things up.
