Kimi Hannin Janai yo ne? キミ犯人じゃないよね? Ep1 Screen Shots

Aren't You a Criminal?
The drama begins as a murderer sets up the murder scene to look like a suicide. The scene shifts to a grocery store where Morita Sakura played by Kanjiya Shihori (Hana Yori Dango 2, H2) challenges the shop keeper to a game based on Morita’s ability to remember all the shop’s prices from the previous day, the prize, a bunch of organic bananas, the penalty would be double the price for the bananas. She displays phenomenal memory ability and then in a voice over explains that studying was always her weakness but it’s her dream to become a mystery writer. In flashback with see her being rejected and subjected to the criticism of editors, all stating that they couldn’t find one shred of talent in her work. So she’s started a series of part time jobs to support herself and to keep her going as she continues to write. Finally an admired writing team after reading her manuscript and agreeing that she has no talent, offer her part time work as an assistant. She’d been working with them for a month before one of the writers is killed, in the scene that opened the drama.

Kaname Jun (Himitsu no Hanazono, Tantei Gakuen Q) shows up at the crime scene, he plays rookie detective Udagawa Kyosei and he involves Shihori in the case. This is a cute show with some decent laughs and a fairly interesting mystery. The best part is watching Shihori at her many and varied part time jobs. I’d recommend this to fans of offbeat mysteries like Kuitan, Sexy Voice and Robo or Mop Girl.

Download the RAW video bit torrent file for the drama here, English soft subs can be downloaded here.
