Synopsis
Minami Risa is a gifted writer in her 30s. She has already made a name for herself, but actually feels that she is at the end of the road. At that moment, Endo Yuki, a young woman in her 20s who has come to Tokyo with the dream of becoming a novelist, appears in front of her. Tired of her title as a genius and unable to confide in anyone that she has exhausted her own ability, Risa entrusts Yuki with being her ghost writer. Risa gets distressed about pretending to be someone she is not in the shadows of her glittering career, but continues to act the way the people think of her. The talented Yuki finds the admiration she should have for Risa gradually transform into bitter animosity. Oda Hayato, a rookie editor, is the first person to discover Yuki's talent, and becomes the one who understands her the most. He struggles in his attempt to make Yuki stop being Risa's ghost writer and debut as an novelist

An interesting but malevolent and gloomy drama about a bestselling writer with writer's block who enlists her assistant as ghost writer, only to find the assistant's talent is eclipsing hers, and people are beginning to notice a shift in "her" style. The initial dynamic of a former master deteriorated to mediocrity vs. the emerging excellence of the amateur upon whom she depends is short-circuited via an eventual series of compromises on principle in the final episodes. Interesting for its immersion in the world of Japanese fiction publishing and definitely worth a look, but with caveats. Currently available on Crunchyroll.

The main storyline between Nakatani, Mizukawa, and Tanaka was very good. But there were some subplots involving Nakatani's mother, her son, and her secretary that were more of a distraction than anything else. Good work by the main three actors and also Shohei Miura in a supporting role.
