Legal Drama
The story of a Public Prosecutor names Kuryu Kohei, a young man driven by his past to help people find justice in a world that is not always so kind to the victims of crime. Finding him in an office with several other lawyers, most of which have flawed personalities in one form or another, Kuryu has to impact on them his sense of justice. With unorthodox investigations of crime scenes and the ability to pick up on the smallest detail in an almost Perry Mason like fashion, Kuryu with the help of his law clerk Amamiya Maiko, will dispense justice for those who need it most. Not to imaginative or ground breaking drama, but an enjoyable watch. Unlike American Legal Dramas, it takes a much less serious look at the working of a legal system while still giving trying to impart same moral lesson.
