YesAsia Editorial Description

Arashi's Ninomiya Kazunari (Yamada Taro Monogatari), NEWS' Nishikido Ryo (Last Friends), and popular actress Toda Erika (Code Blue) star as orphan siblings in the hit 2008 TBS drama Ryusei no Kizuna. Adapting Higashino Keigo's best-selling novel into a 10-episode series, acclaimed screenwriter Kudo Kankuro (Kisarazu Cat's Eye, Tiger & Dragon) approaches the serious story with a light touch, making Ryusei no Kizuna one of the most uniquely told murder mysteries television has seen. Working with a script that combines Higashino-style intrigue, wry Kudo-style humor, and moving family drama, Ninomiya, Nishikido, and Toda deliver admirable and affecting performances, convincingly balancing the story's grave and comedic moments. Other than the idol leads, Ryusei no Kizuna has a superb supporting cast that includes veteran Miura Tomokazu, Kaname Jun (Tatta Hitotsu no Koi), and singer Nakashima Mika (NANA), plus Banana Man's Shitara Osamu (Loss Time Life), Kiritani Kenta (Rookies), Emoto Akira, Terajima Susumu, and Ryo.

On one fateful night fifteen years ago, Ariake Koichi (Ninomiya Kazunari) and his younger siblings Taisuke (Nishikido Ryo) and Shizuna (Toda Erika) sneaked out of the house to see a meteor shower. When they returned, their parents were dead, murdered in cold blood. With the statute of limitations coming up soon, the siblings are more determined than ever to find the killer. While running a swindling operation on the side, the siblings happen upon a prime suspect, and slowly lay a trap to catch him. For the past fifteen years, finding their parents' killer has been Koichi, Taisuke, and Shizuna's greatest reasons for existence, but the truth may not set them free.

Higashino Keigo via Kudo Kankuro
What happens when you cross the moving suspense of Higashino Keigo and the oddball humor of Kudo Kankuro? It's this strangely inspired combination that puts the 2008 TBS drama Ryusei no Kizuna in an engaging genre-bending category of its own.

Adapted from Higashino's popular novel, 10-episode mini-series Ryusei no Kizuna follows three orphan siblings - Koichi (Ninomiya Kazunari), Taisuke (Nishikido Ryo), and Shizuna (Toda Erika) - as they try to find the man who killed their parents in cold blood 15 years ago. Though the premise of the story is heavy, screenwriter Kudo Kankuro's hand is light, approaching the crime mystery and complex relationships with a snappy tone, offbeat pacing, and amusing script. The drama, however, never for a second makes light of the family tragedy or the toll it has taken on the characters beneath their laidback personalities. The past hangs over the story and the characters at every spoken and unspoken moment, and the close, yet contentious relationship of the three siblings and Miura Tomokazu's Detective Kashiwabara is casually but clearly conveyed through simple, yet telling interactions and dialogue.

Kudo Kankuro's influence is strongest in the first half of the drama. The three siblings take to swindling in seemingly random manner, and their escapades are presented as cheeky short films directed by mastermind Koichi, complete with costumes and credits. These irreverent drama-within-a-drama interludes are clearly something out of Kudo Kankuro left field, and his script is punctuated with dry zingers and odd humor. This unpredictable quality gives the drama a very distinct tone and mood of its own that soon feels natural and appropriate for the story and the characters. After the Kudo humor is naturalized and the characters and backstories have been established, the drama settles increasingly into the familiar world of Higashino Keigo as the twist-filled investigation picks up, and the siblings' efforts to manipulate the suspected killer and the police take them to unexpected places and conflicts.

The idol trio of Ninomiya Kazunari, Nishikido Ryo, and Toda Erika form an easy and believable chemistry that gives Ryusei no Kizuna its emotional core. Both Nishikido Ryo and Toda Erika are likable and convincing as the younger siblings, but it is older brother Ninomiya Kazunari who gets the most crucial and fleshed out character, providing an anchor and outlet for all the under-the-surface ties and tensions that hold the story's many relationships together. Ninomiya may not have been the most obvious choice for Ryusei no Kizuna but his casting, like Kudo Kankuro's writing, fits like second skin. Carrying his boyish appearances with a world-weary air, Ninomiya is able to give the drama's seemingly offhand dialogue deeper meaning and hold his own next to veteran co-star Miura Tomokazu, particularly in the drama's emotionally taxing finale.
