The story opens after a young female student kills herself by jumping off a balcony. It's soon discovered that she was in fact stabbed, and the room arranged to make it look like a suicide. And so we begin. A few minor details lead Detective Kanzo (Akashiya Sanma) to suspect that Ryo (Kimura Takuya), an enigmatic chef's assistant, knows more about her death.The two have run into each other by chance a few times, and each time left Kanzo with an uncomfortable feeling. Every clue that is revealed seems to lead to more questions about Ryo, his obsessive girlfriend, his callous and manipulative relations with several women, and about a painful memory from Kanzo's past. Things get more complicated when a powerful love/hate relationship develops between Ryo and Kanza's little sister, the beautiful Yuko (Fukatsu Eri). What exactly is their connection? As the evidence (and body count) rises, Kanza tries desperately to save his sister from Ryo's influence. He's no saint, but is he the Devil Kanza thinks he is? And why? The answers will floor you, even when you think you've got them figured out already.

Predictable

Story:
Starting was strong, however, halfway through you start to lose interest. It was probably because I figured out the story before the detective did.

Acting:
I'm a huge Takuya Kimura fan, but this was drama where I don't think he did well. I didn't feel any sympathy/ pity for his role, which is a shame. The other actors weren't as great either except the detective. I really liked him and he was the only character that kept me watching.

Music:
No songs in this drama, just a lot orchestra, which was pretty good. The opening theme is nice.

Overall:
I wasn' very impressed with this series and I don't recommend it either
