Sasaki Fusai no Jingi Naki Tatakai 佐々木夫妻の仁義なき戦い Ep. 10

10 Final Episode
Norimichi played by Inagaki Goro (Hanazakari no Kimitachi e, SMAPxSMAP) thanks Inoki played by Furuta Arata (Saito-san, Tokyo Friends) for the testimony he gave in the last episode, when Inoki stated he thought that it’d be better if Norimichi raised Akira rather than Ritsuko played by Koyuki (Antique, Kimi wa Pet). Then Ritsuko enters with her mother and Akira, she thanks Inoki for his care of both her and her son. Meanwhile Sakuraba Hajime played by Koide Keisuke (Nodame Cantabile, Oishii Proposal) has fled the scene after being asked to testify on both Norimichi’s and Ritsuko’s behalf. He’s at a Buddhist temple soul searching after Norimichi’s revealed his planned treachery of Ritsuko to the idealist law clerk. His co-workers worry about their jobs as the trial drags on and Ritsuko loses clients. Ritsuko moves with her mother’s help from Inoki’s into her own apartment. Norimichi doesn’t appear to be taking any pleasure in the turn of events as he discusses his case and Ritsuko’s circumstances. Ritsuko’s desperately seeking any clients, so she has the funds to pay the staff.

This was a very interesting drama to say the least, I often went back and forth on the characters and which I preferred. But the one thing that never wavered was the excellent acting by both the two stars and also the supporting actors who’s side stories were also interesting and if the drama was a few episodes longer might have been better developed.
