gW no Higekih is an adaptation of a novel by Natsuki Shizuko, which was first published in 1982. It was turned into a theatrical movie in 1984, then got two separate drama adaptations in 2001 and 2010.

Watsuji Mako is the daughter of a major business conglomerate. She has always lived in comfort, and as a result, she yearns to finally grasp life with her own hands.

Kurasawa Satsuki is a show pub dancer who lives a solitary and destitute life in a corner of the city and who desires money and power.

Although the characters and setting are different from the original, the drama appears to follow the same concept of two women who exchange lives, leading to various tragic events for both of them.

Just a totally unimpressive, silly mystery. The plot points that could be interesting enough to handle some convoluted explanation, such as why two girls look exactly the same, were all pretty simple and clean cut, followed by murder mysteries and such that I didn't even know were supposed to be mysteries until they were solved in retardedly convoluted ways. The series is only eight episodes long, which is sort of a weird length, but it keeps it from dragging on. Also, while it's full of very potentialy cheesy material, it somehow manages to mostly not make me want to vomit, which is impressive from the standpoint that dramas built on much better and more serious plots often do.

I quite like that this only had 8 episodes; it's short, but kept the plot at a quick pace, which made things more intense. Some minor details had me a bit confused about the "murder mistery", however, I found the living worlds of the two main characters more interesting, anyway. To me, that's what this drama was (luckily) really all about. Which isn't to say that the "mysery" was crap. Also: nice directing and soundtrack. :) Takei Emi did a good job with portraying two so very similiar yet conflicting characters. Cast was mainly "good" with a special mention for the portrayal of the cop, which was nicely layered!

Every year there is a drama that surprises the out of you ... this is it. Short, entertaining and dark.

As expected from Higeki series, I didn't expect the tragedy happened in that way... unpredicted ending
