Ryusei no Kizuna流星の絆– Release Oct 08

Kumo Japan Drama sneak!!

Japan Drama Story:
A murder case that happened 14 years ago took away both parents of Ariake Koichi (Ninomiya Kazunari) 二宮和也, Ariake Taisuke (Nishikido Ryo) 錦戸亮 and Ariake Shizuna (Toda Erika) 戸田恵梨香. The case was unsolved and the murderer still hasn’t been identified. The 3 siblings have grown up but they didn’t forget the day their parents died. They were lucky to be alive because during that time 3 of them sneak out to watch meteor shower. Ever since that day onwards, they vowed to investigate the murder case themselves as police can’t help much. The painful memories haunted the 3 of them for 14 years but still there is not much clue regarding the case. One day a man call Togami Yukinari (Kaname Jun) 要潤 appears and that’s when the mystery and secret starts to revel.

Feelings and comments:
The cast members of this drama definitely are strong, not to mention the drama also has Nakashima Mika (中島美嘉). That makes this drama one of the must see drama even without knowing the story.
I must say, initially I thought this drama is a sad story with 3 siblings trying to figure out who kill their parents. After watching first episode, surprisingly it didn’t feel that way. The script is written in a way that there are lots of humors in it but with a little sadness behind it. In addition with some detective and adventure ingredients, the well mixture combination of all makes this drama a different kind of taste. You might feel a bit strange but it just doesn’t taste bad. Perhaps it tastes just like the Hayashi rice in the drama.
Bloodline might determine brothers and sisters but it doesn’t create the feeling or sense of the relationship. Every relationship can be well preserve even if they are not bloodline related.

Things that caught my eyes:
The Hayashi rice seems delicious. I suppose no matter what kind of dishes you’re selling, as long as you can make it taste delicious, you can build a franchise with it. Another interesting part will be the appearance of Nakashima Mika (中島美嘉) as Sagi, and the best part will be her singing ORION in between the drama.

Japan Drama Rating:
Worth watching. This drama is special in a sense that it includes partly humor, detective, family, romance and thriller.
