This sets the stage for a clash of fate between the two brothers. Ainosuke, the young sleuth armed with a special left eye and Yumehito, the genius criminal who has carried out many criminal plots.
A Great Premise....but
When I first watched the special that preceded this series, I was thoroughly convinced that if they made a renzoku out of this, then it would be a weekly adventure to watch that certainly wouldn’t disappoint, and I wasn’t wrong…to some extent.
As far as detective and crime dramas go, the whole basic idea is full of potential. As any, "the villain is someone close to you" drama can be, the back and forth between Yumehito and Ainosuke is full of suspense and a whole lot of intrigue.
While I’m happy to finally watch the last episode, I have to admit being pretty disappointed in the ending. I figure the reason must be that due to ratings they had to cut the plotline short. We never do find out why Yumehito went to such lengths for the weak reveal in this episode besides the idea that killing one man made him TURN EVIL 4EVA~ sort of thing and then to learn that his brothers criminal plan was sooo convoluted that even after his death, the plan continued and Ainosuke is still seeing his brother’s little hints.
Geh, and Akira’s entrance at the end was a bit of a nonevent since we don’t know what the other woman wanted to accomplish by working with Yumehito since its hinted that they’re not in it for the money.
Overall, I just wish it wasn’t always about the ratings and that directors could have more time producing their work until the result is as good as its beginnings..
