ROUND 2

Hmm, at some point I'll compile a list of the dramas I've watched.  Anyway, here's another: 

Kurosagi
Rating: [Enjoyability: 4/5] ["Feel good factor" = 3/5] [Delivery: 3/5] = Overall: 3.33/5

Summary (DramaWiki): Kurosaki is a young man whose family was destroyed by swindlers.  Despite that, Kurosaki grows up to become a con artist known as Kurosagi.  As Kurosagi, he swindles other con artists and returns the money to the original victim.  He works with the master swindler Katsuragi Toshio even though Toshio had a hand in the destruction of Kurosaki's family.  Kurosaki's life begins to change when he meets Yoshikawa Tsurara, a young law student who disapproves of his disrespect of the law.  Can she persuade Kurosaki to give up swindling and his quest for revenge?

What I thought: This drama was so promising.  It had a really interesting premise, a decent cast of characters, and definitely fooled me into thinking there was going to be character development, and some plot resolution by the end.  Yamashita Tomohisa (or Yamapi...I can't imagine why you would want to call him that) is spot-on in his role as the "good" swindler, Kurosagi.  You see where he comes from because of his past, but he's a character who insists on not having a future--until he meets Tsurara (Horikita Maki).  She's so pure and wholesome that it might make you sick; she doesn't seem to understand Kurosaki at all, but is so idealistic that she can't help but care about him.  To top it off, she wants to be a prosecutor.  It's an interesting and exciting drama, hilarious to watch Yamashita Tomohisa in all his ridiculous getups, but if you're looking for some sort of conclusive resolution, you probably won't like this drama.  I understand there's a movie sequel, which I haven't seen, so I'm not sure if that resolves the plot a little better than where the series left it.  Overall, Kurosagi was enjoyable but was wanting something by the end.

Hmm, your comment seems out of context. Feel free to elaborate, or don't, it doesn't really matter.
