The A group students at an exclusive high school are taken hostage along with their homeroom teacher by a group of gunmen. The students are forced to find 2000 pieces of a puzzle and put it together within 24 hours or the teacher and a former classmate will be executed. The story is told through an interview process with an unknown interrogator and through flashbacks. Dramatically I don’t know if this is a good way to tell a story, it sometimes feels too dry and it reveals through it’s very nature that these characters at least have survived, which takes away some of the suspense. However in such a short series, four half hour episodes, it’s an effective way to get a large number of viewpoints across to the audience. Yanagi Kotaro (Tadashii Oji no Tsukurikata
) plays the main character and does a pretty good job with it, he a little more lively then the character he plays in Tadashii Oji no Tsukurikata but not much. Along with Yanagi two other classmates I recognise are Nakamura Yuichi (Kamen Rider Den-O
as Sakurai Yuuto/Kamen Rider Zeronos, Gokusen
2) and Yamamoto Yusuke (Hanazakari no Kimitachi e
, Kamen Rider Kabuto) who is also starring in this years Puzzle
with Ishihara Satomi but the two dramas aren’t connected at all except by sharing a similar name. This drama wasn’t as exciting as I’d hoped it’d be and the overall puzzle is pretty easy to figure out but if you love mysteries you might find this entertaining. But I’d much rather watch the 2008 Puzzle, its has better mysteries and overall is a lot more fun.
