Feelings and comments:
Sometimes I’m amazed by the ability of some actors that can bring out the best of a simple drama story or script. To be honest the story of this drama is predictable and similar stories have been told over thousands of times but still the outcome of this drama is not as bad as I think. Perhaps we just can’t really predict the results until the drama is air. That goes the same to movies. Some low budget and poor rating movies or dramas might just create unexpected high viewing rates.
    It’s interesting to imagine a person that has healing power or killing ability. It’s natural that public will reject the one that has killing ability and afraid of it. The public will accept the one with healing ability. It’s just a normal human nature reaction. Having the ability to heal and kill can actually create a large disturbance. It will affect the balance of the society and the concept of life we have. As there is someone that can heal and cure any injuries and diseases, we might not be careful with our life. People will start taking higher risk. Medical treatment might not be necessary and a must. Lots and lots of changes will take place if such a person with healing power existed. Is it a good thing or a bad thing? I’m not sure but definitely it will create some impact.
    Similarly scenario can be applied to those who have special ability and talent. For sure people will make full use or take advantage on the special ability or talent. When one is needed, then there is a value towards others. I suppose in another way of speaking, the value is define as salary. But still the only one that decides whether to use the ability or talent reminds within the person. The larger the impact or effect of the ability or talent, the greater the value it is.

Things that caught my eyes:
The cell that used to imprison Ryuzaki Shinji (Takizawa Hideaki) 滝沢秀明 reminds me of an Academy Awards winning picture The Silence of The Lambs. Trigger by the similarities between the famous movie and this drama, it increases the mysterious aura within. The conversation, the intention, the mystery and of cause the ability of the actors makes this drama successful.

Japan Drama Rating:
Nice to watch. It’s a clear simple story, pretty much like a fictional comic style story but what’s make it special is the actors. It’s their acting performance that keeps me continue watching this drama until the end.
