Japan Drama Story:

Unfortunately things turn badly within minutes as Takagi Ryonosuke (Tanaka Tetsushi) 田中哲司found himself trap or setup by the terrorist and the only advice that he can give to his son is the two words “Bloody Monday”.

Feelings and comments:
This drama involves a lot of people. Apart of the main actor Miura Haruma (三浦春馬), every cast within this drama has the chance to show their talent in acting. A lot of actor or actress that I never lay eyes on before are now craft inside my mind. This is definitely a drama that brings out a lot of talented actors.
As for the drama itself, the story is very exciting with the script written in a way that you’ll keep on watching it nonstop. The only thing that probably might drive you crazy is that you can’t figure it out who’s the good guy and who’s the bad guy. That’s how it is when involves secret agents.
Perhaps the so call terrorist attack might not be the most dangerous thing that can happen. The fear within public about terrorist might just be equally dangerous. Steering up public fear can be lethal as it causes panic within society. The drama shows that by controlling information you basically control everything. Nowadays all information has its price. Sometimes the price is much more expensive then a human life.

Things that caught my eyes:
Seems like thumb drive is much more important than a notebook for a hacker and is much more convenient.

Japan Drama Rating:
Worth watching. Not many exciting drama just like this one. Some similarities from US award winning TV series 24 can be found in this drama.
