Takagi Fujimaru is an excellent hacker who is dragged by Japan's Public Safety Special Third unit into a struggle with dangerous terrorists who are trying to infect the world with a deadly virus. This virus has already deleted a whole city in Russia and is now set to destroy Tokyo.
I started watching this because I love it when Narimiya Hiroki plays the bad guy, but seriously, this series had me glued.
The hacking plot created a total different atmosphere compared to most of the doramas I've watched until now; it gave a cool and awesome image to the IT world, but also to the main character (sometimes I forgot he was only 16, even when Miura Haruma's face is young and fresh). The virus plot started pretty strong and, even when it eventually faded away and started being just as a background thing, the series had a few twists that were completely unexpected or at least surprising to me. Also, I loved the different use of camera angles and the soundtrack.
Miura Haruma is outstanding here, especially compared to the rest of his works so far; his performance as the genius hacker Takagi Fujimaru does not disappoint. But the supporting cast could perfectly stand alongside him; Kichise Michiko was flawless as the sexy, manipulative and devious Orihara Maya. Narimiya Hiroki was awesome as the playful and trickster math genius J, and Matsushige Yutaka served well his role as the tough Kano.
The first episode was awesome and really made me want to check the rest of the dorama out; something I don't regret. It had me expectant until the end and it didn't disappoint me.
This was just thrilling to watch. Every second of every minute of it was worth watching !! ~ There was never a dull moment in this drama. The actors brought the characters to life so beautifully. Everything was detailed and precise leaving nothing simple and ordinary, but tactics that make you baffle. This is a definite must-watch drama :D
Can't wait to see what is in store for the second drama xD
