Kimi Hannin Janai yo ne? キミ犯人じゃないよね? Ep4 Screen Shots

Udagawa played by Kaname Jun (Himitsu no Hanazono, Tantei Gakuen Q) is at a play where an actress stabs another actor then turns to the audience and delivers a monologue. This is when Udagawa falls in love and has to be restrained by an audience member after launching into a standing ovation in the middle of the play. The scene shifts to Sakura played by Kanjiya Shihori (Hana Yori Dango 2, H2) editor’s office for a change the editor is quite impressed with a story idea that Sakura has come up with. The mystery revolves a round a Ferris wheel where the criminal suddenly disappears from the top. But the editor wants to know the trick to how he disappears. Sakura said she’s leaving that up to the imaginations of the readers or they could offer a reward and then publish the best submittal. The disappointed editor wants Sakura to disappear before tossing the manuscript into the trash. Udagawa is waiting at a department store rooftop amusement park for the actress who he’s fallen in love with. When Sakura in a mouse costume tries to sell them a balloon, then Udagawa and his new girlfriend witness the murder of the play’s director.

This episode doesn’t follow the normal pattern of the crime, then Udagawa falling in love with the murderer this time he falls in love first, so the question becomes did he fall in love with the murderer this time and we don’t find out until they witness the crime together. Of course it takes Sakura’s skills to solve the case.

Kimi Hannin Janai yo ne? キミ犯人じゃないよね? Ep3 Screen Shots

Udagawa played by Kaname Jun (Himitsu no Hanazono, Tantei Gakuen Q) starts off the episode with a monologue introducing himself and Sakura played by Kanjiya Shihori (Hana Yori Dango 2, H2) but most of what he says is self delusion. Then the scene switches to a school at night the security guard patrolling the hallway finds the body of a teacher in the teacher’s room. The scene shifts to Sakura’s editor’s office, where Sakura tells her it took a whole week for her to come up with the dying message she used in the story, a corny pun on Clint Eastwood. The editor tells her to write a book that teases and teases the reader and holds them captive before she tosses the manuscript in the trash for a hole in one. Udagawa arrives at the school crime scene trips down the stairs and winds up looking like a seal in front of the school girls with his arms at his side and his head up.

I love this show it’s funny and it follows the same pattern in each episode, a crime is committed, Udagawa shows up at the scene and needs to enlist the aid of Sakura to solve the case. But like Columbo where the crime is revealed immediately and it’s the mystery lover’s puzzle to figure out how he catches the murderer, in this show as soon as Udagawa falls in love we have the perpetrator we need to figure out how they did it and how Sakura will figure it out.
