Mr Brain Review

This is a Tsukumo Ryusuke drama who is pretty popular and after watching this drama I’ve realised why. His acting is awesome. He has a very intense charm and charisma. I don’t really know what it is about him but as soon as he started talking I liked him.

This drama had the most popular Japanese actors and actresses as guest stars. You have Nakama Yukie (Gokusen) who I super adore, Sato Takeru who was in Rookies, Gackt, do i need to even say more?, and Kamenashi Kazuya from the Japanese boy band Kat-Tun .

This drama reminded me of Galileo, which was a drama I have reviewed before on this website. It also reminds me of the show The Mentalist. This show was a lot of fun but as with many good shows I wish there was a second season because it did not finish so well.
Tsukumo Ryusuke plays SMAP’s Kimura Takuya who used to be a host until an accident made him lose his memories and made him much smarter then he used to be and weirder. He is very eccentric and has a obsession with eating bananas. Kimura goes to America and comes back to Japan to join National Research Institute of Police Mr BrainScience as the head neurologist. Yuri played by Ayase Haruka is transferred to work with Tsukumo. They both solve cases with Tanbara and Hayashida, played by Kagawa Teruyuki and Mizushima Hiro who are police detectives.
This drama was really hilarious and I really enjoyed watching. Talking about it makes me want to watch it all over again! The ratings were very high of this drama.

  1. I’m currently watching it and it’s really really funny and educational. Although I didn’t find it in Kimura’s popular drama list, I have great admiration with his acting skills here. He’s really a versatile entertainer.

    Hope you’re watching Moon Lovers’s currently airing and he looks better in romantic dramas! =)

  2. I have not actually started watching that yet, though I should start. Am just watching so many dramas am so addicted ><
