Shiroi Haru Review

screen shotFormer yakuza Haruo is finally released from prison after completing his sentence. With nine years worth of prison gratuities in hand, he stops at a restaurant to enjoy a good meal, but all of his money ends up being stolen. With nothing left, he spends the night at a net cafe, and he manages to look up his old friend from his yakuza days. When Haruo visits the next day, he learns that his old girlfriend Mariko was living with another man, but later died of illness. Haruo, who had committed murder 9 years earlier to earn the money for Mariko’s medical treatment, is shocked and angered. He decides to track down that other man, who runs a bakery with his wife and daughter Sachi. Haruo later runs into Sachi at the park, but he has yet to find out the truth about her.

This drama was amazing and it was really good!. I do like Abe Hiroshi his a really good actor. This drama had a perfect story line and he played his character amazingly. At the start of this drama I could not really get into it because the first episode was not that good but then I kept watching it and it really pulled me in. The storyline was really good. It was also a pretty sad drama even though it had its humorous moments. I wanted the ending to be great and even though I was disappointed  in it I know it really wrapped the series up pretty well. Abe Hiroshi’s best drama so far. All the acting was amazing in this drama as each actor and actress was not overshadowed by Abe Hiroshi’s superb performance because they were pretty good themselves.

The drama has the most compelling story I have ever seen. Its about how people change and what people do for love. It was really a good drama except at the end I did wonder what happened to some of the other characters. They needed to have  a more expansion on the storyline but overall this drama was a pleasure to watch.

Below is the opening song which fitted the drama perfectly. Its by Sakai Ayumi called Yokogao whose voice is really good. I have the whole album by this singer and she can sing.
