Sasaki Fusai no Jingi Naki Tatakai 佐々木夫妻の仁義なき戦い Ep. 9

Norimichi played by Inagaki Goro (Hanazakari no Kimitachi e, SMAPxSMAP) was arrested on a stalking charge that Ritsuko played by Koyuki (Antique, Kimi wa Pet) accused him of at the hospital after she gave birth to their son, Akira. Norimichi protests that they’d agreed that all would be forgiven, then yells that he’ll settle it in court. Norimichi’s mother start’s upbraiding Ritsuko, but Ritsuko’s mother comes right to her defence regarding Norimichi’s plan to get custody of Akira by acting as a loving husband, then after the birth betraying Ritsuko and securing custody of the child in court. Finally Ritsuko stops their bickering by agreeing that it’ll all be settled in court, just as Norimichi previously expressed his desire to do. Norimichi goes off to jail and Ritsuko speaking with her mother and Inoki played by Furuta Arata (Saito-san, Tokyo Friends) states she’ll go back to work tomorrow to protect Akira.

My feeling about this show have swung back and forth as I like each of the characters and while they seem to be made for each other in some ways each compliments the other, but in other ways they also seem to bring out the worst in each other as well. After the last episode I pretty much detested the upstanding Norimichi for the treachery he planned with his mother. But with only one episode to go I’m really interested to see how this whole saga plays out in court.
