I don't know I can't really score it any lower if I'm being fair because I have only watched 2 and a half episodes, but I really can't be bothered to watch anymore. I fell asleep in the first episode... I guess it's just not my cup of tea, it has potential but the whole feel of the drama didn't do anything for me.
Maybe I could have enjoyed it further on but I am really not motivated to try...

Great performance by Oikawa Mitsuhiro and Hirayama Aya. They are like younger version of Abe Hiroshi and Nakama Yukie in the Trick series.

AV star Sora Aoi guest stars in one episode and, you've guessed it, has nude scenes.

I really like the Oikawa, he always brings some sort of delicate, sweet humor to his work...but, this late-night show has yet to prove itself more than a cheap, dreary copy of TRICK.

interesting detective drama about japan folklore.... was laughing throughout but wasnt too exciting as the case wasnt veri difficult or suspenseful enough...

Very very very similar to TRICK series but not as interesting I think. it's not as funny but i still enjoy these mysteries. I like Oikawa and Aya~ =3

highly interesting with the mysteries of killing being done in a way where it is related to the old folkore tales.

Quite slow to begin and character development so far is minimal. Feels low budget.

I just finished Episode 1 & 2. It may be too early to make any meaningful comments but it started slowly with little character development. Then it introduced so many faces that I could not identify with them at all. Feels low budget.
