Joker Yurusarezaru Sosakan - a different kind of police drama

 Wednesday, October 20, 2010

 
 As I mentioned before, I believe Japanese are the best when it comes to mystery and police shows. They didn't disappoint me this time either. With a unique plot and an excellent cast, the recently completed dorama that aired this autumn, Joker, is definitely one of the few dramas that are worth watching this season.
 Plot:
Date Kazuyoshi is a detective known for his kind and calm personality. However, during the nighttime, he punishes the criminals who manage to escape being be prosecuted.
Cast: 
Along with Sakai Masato, who plays the main lead, there are many other topnotch actors who are starring in this drama, making it a real delight for the eyes and soul. Some worth mentioning are: Kaga Takeshi, Ryo (Miyada Yumiko), Osugi Ren, Nishikido Ryo, Anne. This names might sound alien, but once you see the actors' faces, you realize they are actors who have starred in numerous dramas and have received great love from the audience all throughout their careers.
Personal opinion:
The plot is actually a little more complicated in comparison to what I wrote previously, but it's something that shouldn't be spoiled by reviews so I won't be going into details. What I must tell is that this dorama is something typically Japanese. The whole plot is centered around the idea of justice and it makes people wonder: what is justice actually? What is truly right and what is truly wrong. I have stumbled upon this idea in many Japanese production. Lets take Death Note, for instance, which is a manga/anime/movie everyone has heard about. That was focused on the idea of justice.
Joker too, emphasizes the same concept: the idea of an Utopian world where all criminals are punished, the notion of idealistic Justice that no criminal can escape from. It is indeed, at least i my opinion, a typically Japanese line of thought. And, since I love Japanese and their mentality, I can honestly say I absolutely loved this drama as well.
As you can deduce from the storyline, this drama is quite unique, since it features policemen taking it upon themselves to clear the world of criminals even when law can't bring them to justice .Take this and add a memorable cast with perfect acting skills and you have a great police drama, to say the least. I wholeheartedly recommend it.
