The 1st episode of [S.P.] bagged an impressive 14.5% in ratings.
This is a very very good number for that time slot and it was
even pushed back half an hour because of volleyball this week.
I would say, it's comparable to a 20%+ rating for
a primetime drama that airs at 9 or 10 pm.
Congratulations to the [S.P.] team!
Sandra, the slot that [S.P.] occupies, 11 pm on Saturdays on CX
is a new renzoku drama time slot. FujiTV opened up this new
slot just this spring with [Liar Game] and [LIFE] followed in summer.
Per my understanding, FujiTV has always been the top dog in terms
of the drama world among the 4 main stations. So it's actually a
great thing that Junichi signed onto this slot. Plus the drama is helmed
by a reputable director with widely recognized classics to his credit,
a talented writer, a seasoned crew, and a capable cast.
And from what Junichi's said, this drama has been in the works for
at least a couple of years; he even started physical training over a

Elysia, you are watching this too. Good for you.
Episode 2 screencaps.
I can't believe they dragged out this episode so much and have to have a sequel in arresting the culprits. Nice moves on the female star's part.
Today is a study of Junichi's frowns
This one is too cute.
Beautiful side profile. See the manliness of his features!!!!
Look at how pronounced his eyebrows area is. Incredible!!
Here's an OMG smile!!!
Yo, this could very well be him waiting for his wife to deliver the baby...
The director captured this look of his beautifully!!!
Someone should try and make this into a banner for us at this forum and we could see him waving and smiling to us every time we log on.
This one is cute but the one following - look at the lines of his lips...how curved they are...
They are the perfect lips to draw, just perfect. Yeah, for those of you who don't draw, trace your finger over the outline
Now we have an extra possibility for us to imagine - that if we have a chauffeur, it could very well be Junichi.
He could be my chauffeur even when he is old.
These two are actually very expressive even behind the glass.
This one suddenly reminds me of the young Junichi. He has not changed at all.
Alright, on to the story. I'm surprised the English subs are not out yet.Ep. 2
The opening Junichi parts has him pouncing onto an armed man. They were actually just practicing and the girl laughed at him that this type of training wouldn't work.
Then he felt a bit dizzy. The supervisor ordered him to go to the hospital for a check up, he refused. Supervisor said it was an order.
At the hospital, the doctor said that he has an over activity of NGF which is overcompensating in repair work and therefore induce an increased amount of protein. Such nerves function has recently been studied widely because of the study of plaques blocking nerves in the study of Alzeimer's disease. But the downside is that the over activity of such nerves would cause him a heightened consciousness of things around him. She asked him if he had ultra good memory. He said it was decent. She said that the heightened sensitivites may cause discomfort in his daily life. He could smell things that others could not smell, hear things louder than others, and he would feel dizzy at times and imaginary events during work as a result. She asked if he had an undisciplined childhood or a traumatic even at youth.
He said no, not that I recall.
She told him to stay calm and relaxed.
He said then I might as well change job softly.
She prescribed 3 weeks of medication.
At the hallway, Junichi heard Tanaka's footsteps and could decipher. Tanaka said he was annoying. Junichi said, can't help it , your footstep is too easy to tell. Your knee has been injured before.
Tanaka explained that his archilles heel has been injured before (archilles heel is connected to the ligaments) and he injured it when he was in military service. In the elevator Junichi asked what is Tanaka investigating. Tanaka said it's secret. Lucky you guys on training. Take care of your health. Junichi remarked, He is irritating me more.
At the office, the girl was talking to colleague who he would be under that day for assignment. She remarked that it must have been tough for him not to see his daughter for 3 months.
Fat guy comes in and insisted on parting his hair 7:3 style. She said do you have to? He said, it's part of the job. She remarked it's 8:2 at the moment. He changed it and she approved. He asked her who she's working with today. She said it depends on orders.
Junichi comes in and he said he heard it would be the ex-prime minister. The boss talked to supervisor for transporting the ex-prime minister to the hospital and it had to be kept secret. Supervisor said if you don't give us orders more than the night before, we wouldn't have sufficient time to plan things out. Boss said do it well. Last time, ex-PM didn't want us to be involved and now finally we got the job again so pls don't mess up. And btw, make sure your beloved pet would not mess things up.
The terrorists are interested in doing the ex-prime minister in as he goes to the hospital for checkup.
At the hospital, Junichi standing in front of the surgery room that he somehow had an uneasy feeling and premonition of something bad is going to happen. Female colleague said there's not much to do anyway except wait for the examination is finished. Why doesn't he go and have lunch first. The nurse pass by and Junichi watched for a while. She said, don't tell me that is the premonition of love. Junichi said he would rather it was indeed. She urged him, perhaps you should check yourself downstairs to see a doctor.
The rest is without much dialog.Exclusive: Please do not repost this translation outside of this forum.
I'll do the ep. 1 summary in a bit.
My review so far:
I could not believe they split this episode with a sequel. It is in general very very slow and very ineffective as a police drama.
Let's put it this way, so far this drama is neither funny nor suspenseful. It all centers on Junichi having unnatural abilities. I watch it for the eye candy and Junichi's expressions. But man, I think Koichi's Sushi Chef has redeeming factor when compared to this because at least Koichi's drama makes some of us laugh because it is so outlandish.
This is as plain as Utahime which is running at single digit rating. They really need to thicken the plot and speed it up. The filming is so slow that if this film is handcrankable, I would speed it up 10 times. There's not enough content in it, nor plot, so far. Ah....the Japanese need to learn from the Koreans.
