Ortros no Inu
I am a huge Tackey fanatic..so the minute I found out he’s got a new dorama out I’m on the net searching for episodes to download. That was way back in May, and the dorama doesn’t start until July but I just had to find out more about it. And after waiting what felt like and eternity it’s finally here!!!!
I downloaded the first 3 episodes about two weeks ago and got hooked from the start. The plot runs around two very different young men: Ryuzaki Shinji played by Takizawa Hideaki, possesses the “God Hand”, the power to heal wounds and illnesses just by touching the patient, is in fact a dark introvert who does not reveal his true self to others; and Aoi Ryosuke, played by Nishido Ryo, possesses the “Demon’s Hand”, the power to kill a person just by touching him, is as kind and pure as an angel. The wheel on the scene was a police detective, Hasebe Nagisa played by Mizukawa Asami; she met Aoi by accident while on a deep penetration mission concerning an illegal drug operation where he saved her life and in so doing killed her attacker.
Then by sheer accident again she found out about the existence of another person who possesses the “God Hand” the power to heal all diseases, in the person of a very security prisoner. She became a way for the two possessors to meet and in so doing cause a great disruption in the order of things. Ryuzaki tricked Aoi into killing the warden promising the other that he could bring him back to life once he’ escaped and promised to help people when he is out. Aoi did as he was asked only to find out that Ryuzaki was lying. Ryuzaki escaped leaving Aoi feeling guilty for the death of the warden. Thus begins the battle of wills between the two forces…
What I love about this dorama was the interaction between the two main characters. Tackey plays a devilishly dark character in here and he’s doing it so well! I’ve always loved him on dark roles but he really out did himself on this one. Even Nishido Ryo fans were admitting (reluectantly) that Tackey was the one to watch on this dorama. In their interactions Ryuzaki kept on pushing Aoi to use his power, reasoning with him and using logic in his arguments, sometimes even blackmailing him to use his power. He kindda reminds me a lot about Kira without the Death Note. And you can see Aoi really struggling with him while Ryuzaki kept on taunting him.
All in all it is a great Jdorama and it’s something to really watch and follow. I mean, two gorgeous guys and a kickass plot…not to mention a great OST sang by no other than Tackey…what more can you ask for!!!???
