This drama is about two completely different people, having one thing in common, they have a special ability. Aoi Ryosuke (Nishikido Ryo) is hardworking and serious teacher, with a strong feeling for justice. His life changes one day, as his student, Shirakawa Kana (Haru), overhears two guys, Kumakiri Masaru (Yaotome Hikaru) and friend, discuss a murder . She confines herself to Aoi, who tells her, that it would be hard to prove anything without evidence, but tells her not to worry. Soon after that, Shirakawa tries to get evidence, ending up in coma.
A detective undercover, Hasebe Nagisa (Mizukawa Asami) tails the drugs, and ends up at a party, where Kumakiri is selling drugs. She ends up being almost killed, but is saved by Aoi, who by touch kills the friend of Kumakiri. Aoi then tries to turn himself in, but the police cant lock him up, because of lacking evidence, and the fact, that it cant hold in court. They end up calling it, "The Devils hand".
At a point Hasebe hears about a man talking about "The Devils Hand" and meets Ryuzaki Shinji (Takizawa Hideaki) who is a convict, in jail. She soon finds out that his hand is "The Gods Hand", that it is able to heal every sickness or wound. By that Hasebe gets the idea to let "The Devils Hand" meet "The Gods Hand" and the story finally takes a huge turn...
I can say i really enjoyed this drama. I have a tendency to guess the ending of a drama before it begins, but this time, even though I sort a guessed some of the twists, I really was blown away by many of them. Takizawa is brilliant as the "demon-with-healing-powers" and Nishikido as "angel-with-demonic-powers". Makes you wonder, whats worse? Killing a person or not healing a person? The ONLY negative (but it still is a big one) is the ending. You would usually, in every drama have the main characters change either their bad habits or become different, bad or good. In this drama I seem to have, missed something out, because, I didnt really see the difference in the end. Or a different enviorment.. But all in all.. A total worth of watch!!
