Title: Keizoku 2: SPEC

Supernatural Police Procedural

Brief Description:
'She's a taste-deficient hacker genius detective with serious social issues who carries her stuff in a suitcase, he's a former assault team commander under suspicion for a mysterious crime who always carries his stuff in a paper bug (and by 'stuff' we mean 'gun').  Together, they fight crime!'

Formulaic description: Japan!Mulder and Scully + off-beat humour + mutants = why aren't you watching this?

This is a mix of: Think of it as CSI meets Heroes meets WEIRDNESS.

Shining endorsements: This dorama made me spend half an hour trying to read kanji made out of gyoza.


Where to get it?
I'd recommend [profile] ourhour, more specifically this. Or online here.

So what is it about anyway? :

Sebumi, that's baldie up there, is the serious, hard-working commander of a SIT unit - that is, police assault team -. In the midst of a normal, regular mission, one of his team mates gets shot. The higher ups are sure it was Sebumi, Sebumi is sure that Shimura was killed by his own bullets. Given that bullets usually don't reverse course just because, nobody believes him.

But they can't prove Sebumi did it, so he just gets sorta-demoted to the Unidentified Crimes Unit. The unit is understaffed and it's clearly a dead-end position. They investigate crimes related to 'SPECs' or 'special abilities'. Cases that can't be prosecuted or even proven. The unit is composed of Chief Nonomura, a old geezer with a taste for younger women and hidden depths, and Touma Saya, our main character. Read more... )

So really, why should I watch it?

If you like weird women, men who are boiling with anger below the surface, mindfucks, quirkiness, psycho killers, mutants, Japanese pop culture references, ODDBALLNESS, mysteries, OTPs that are all about the nakama bond, slapstick THIS IS THE DORAMA FOR YOU.

PS: Oh look, it's JE Remix Cycle 7 schedule and it totally amuses me that me and Anna made such similar posts so close together.
