Voice Review

Title: Voice
Genre: Medical, mystery
Episode: 11
Broadcast period: 2009-Jan-12 to 2009-Mar-23
Cast: Eita, Ikuta Toma, Ishihara Satomi, Endo Yuya, Sato Tomohito, Izumiya Shigeru, Yada Akiko, Tokito Saburo aso.

A group of 5 young medical students take a seminar on forensic pathology. Not many students pick forensic pathology and those who do pick it dont last very long, working with dead people isnt something anyone can do. Ryosuke, Kanako, Teppei, Akira and Daiki, who is somehow accepted for the seminar even though he didnt apply, are faced with the task to listen to the voices of the dead, to find out their story and their last words to their family and friends. These 5 students with very different personalities bond, grow and work together and even try to gather clues outside school, they become immersed in solving the mysteries.

I didnt expect to like this drama at all. At first i thought it wouldnt be interesting but it sure was. I think japanese dramas got this thing, they're special because they show a different side of things or go into depth with a subject and make you think about things. I really liked the characters especially Daiki and his "Naaandee!?" all the time. We usually (or at least i ) dont think about things that are part of our daily routines, we dont think why we do as we do and why some things happen, so it was a really nice twist to the drama. Also of course Ikuta Toma, who i always enjoy watching. It also had a lot of humor (most japanese do) so it wasnt all serious.

☆☆☆☆ / 4 out of 5 stars

Bunji's Verdict
OMG, another good one.
When I watched this drama some time back, I fell in love with Eita (didn‘t like him in Last Friends), and made me watch most of his drama after it. Even though I watched Voice because of Toma, I was head over heels with Eita.
This drama is a very “Japanese Medical” drama, meaning: few people, completely different personalities, finding themselves in the work they get.
It’s recommendable, even recommended it to Jenji, so if you haven’t watched it, GO! It’s a nice drama.
