Review: Puzzle

Found another Japanese drama to watch. Currently only air till episode 3. Just watched episode 1 and found it is worth to watch. The title "puzzle" should reveal much about what the drama is about. It is about1 teacher and 3 students solving puzzles... Kind of interesting watching them solving puzzles to reach another point where another puzzle is waiting for them to solve. Some of these puzzles revolve around English language.

Tokyograph --Misako Ayukawa, a woman in her 30s, is an English teacher with ironically poor English skills. She values herself over her students, and money over love. She displays arrogance in front of her students, but acts pleasantly around her peers and family. However, Ayukawa possesses a brilliant mind for solving puzzles. She ends up tackling various cases around the school along with 3 of her top students. Kind of like Kindaichi shonen no jikenbo (金田一少年の事件簿).

That English teacher speaks in 2 different voices - using harsh and low voice when speaking to her students and using sweet kind of voice when speaking to others. Funny haha.

Casts: Ishihara Satomi (get to know this actress from this drama only), Yamamoto Yusuke ( Hanazakari no Kimitachi e), Kimura Ryo (Nodame Cantabile)
