Plot

Ango Ishikawa (Shun Oguri) is a detective with smarts and a keen sense of observation. He's in a great physical shape and also highly ambitious. Ango also only focuses on his work and his personal life is pretty much non-existent.

One day, a former police officer is killed by a gun shot. Ango goes to the scene of the crime, but is shot in the head by the killer who is lurking at the crime scene. Ango hovers between life and death. At that time, he thinks to himself "where do people go after they die?" and then "I don't want to die." A miracle then happens. Anglo survives with the bullet still lodged in his head. He goes back to work.

A new murder case takes place. When Ango goes to the crime scene he notices a boy who looks like he is about to cry, but only Ango is able to see the boy. The boy is the one who was killed. Since Ango was shot, he can now see and talk with the dead.

Kathy Let me add my pleas for a season 2, by same writer, director and cast of course!

jen Fantastic drama. The cold, rather clammy atmosphere captures the feeling of some limbo between the living and the dead (and also between good and evil), and none of the performers strays into melodrama, exaggeration and/or irritating cuteness. Most impressive of all is the writing, which achieves an incredible combination of tightness and depth - coherent, economical, not one wasted moment, yet managing to explore big issues and ideas to do with the nature of law, justice, evil, etc. One of the best dramas I've ever seen, in any language.

ling second season !!!!

wderfrr Just from the ratings of the drama, I know how good it is. Oguri- san is a good actor. He's one of my favourite actors. <3

Xylocaine Must.... Have..... second season !

Kazuki Kaneshiro for the amazing drama

Krysa For that devastating ending and excellent Oguri Shun - definitely 100%.

Fullheart5 Quite a good drama. I enjoy this lead actor a lot. Very talented.

Fullheart5 Quite a good drama. I enjoy this lead cut or a lot. Very talented.

fifi I love this jdrama. It's like no other. It's unlike the usual supernatural/detective dramas I've seen. Every episode has a catch and a twist you'll love and it's going to make want to watch the drama more. The way the story goes and the sequencing of events is totally going to attract audiences because each episode has a totally different story and situation from the other. Plus, Shun is really awesome and gorgeous! The rest of the cast are really good too :D I can't wait to watch the rest of it!! :D A must see drama!!

windseeker Surprisingly good, a rare find these days in Jdrama.

khawla i like it so good it's the same like detective cheo yong

atik Very interesting n so good can't wait for the next episode
