Title: Team Batista 2
AKA: The Triumphant return of General Rouge
Genre: Medical, Mystery
Episodes: 12 + SP
Broadcast period: 2010 Apr to 2010 Jun

Six months after the Batista incident, Taguchi Kohei (Ito Atasushi) is still working in the Special Complaint Department. When a former patient of his gets admitted to the Emergency Room he is called upon and meets the famous ‘General Rouge’ Hayami Koichi (Nishijima Hidetoshi) a man famous for accepting all patients and never letting anyone rest. At the same time he stumbles upon Shiratori Keisuke (Nakamura Toru) who is back to do a compulsory audit on the hospital, and becomes fairly interested in Hayami whom he seems to have a former relationship with. When some doubtful documents pop up, Shiratori makes Taguchi join the Emergency Room team as the ‘Mental Care’ doctor, meaning dealing with the mental states of the patients, but also helping them overcome their emotions. With Taguchi there it gives Shiratori the ability to check up on Hayami, and to find out what really is going on…

Again the great thing about dramas is that you can get to know the characters and their situations better than in a movie, and that is what I think makes the biggest difference between the movie and drama. Though the movie was great the drama sort of is much more detailed and much more heartfelt - kind of lets you like the characters more, even though they are not all that great. The duo has grown even more on me - like Sherlock and Watson - they have these comic moments and usually work extremely well together, yet they are complete opposites. And honestly I like season 2 a bit better than season 1 :)
But you can watch season 2 without having watched season 1, though season 1 is great watch too..
