Iryu 2 Review

Title: Iryu 2
AKA: Dragon Medical Team 2 / Dragon Team 2
Genre: Medical
Episodes: 11
Broadcast period: 2007-Oct to 2007-Dec
Cast: Sakaguchi Kenji, Uchida Yuki, Mizukawa Asami and Koike Teppei.

After Dr. Asada (Sakguchi Kenji) had left Japan, Meishii University Hospital has come to a downfall where the new professors don’t even have practical knowledge making life hard for the interns. Tying to sustain his honor as a doctor Ijyuuin Noboru (Koike Teppei) has a hard time respecting the professors, and with Dr. Fujiyoshi (Sasaki Kuranosuke) transferred to Fukuoka, his allies have decreased. When every prior member of the dragon team gets a letter telling the dragon team to assemble, all members return to Meishii. Dr. Asada returns to just in time to save Kataoka Kazumi (Uchida Yuki) a hit-and-run patient, and joins the team. To their surprise no one seems to know who sent the letter, but as they find out, the team is split and Ijyuuin, Asada and Fujiyoshi are labeled as bad and shipped to a sister hospital that is sure to be failed with only outcasts. Now begins the fight to save the reputation of the newly built dragon team…

Hmm, compared to season 1 this is better, though a bit more focused on the business part of the medicine. I think it is because of the new character which makes the drama fresher, but still changes the overall feel. I have a thing for Arase (the blonde dude) and I have no idea why. I seriously get more excited seeing him appear than the main lead, even though he isn’t that much on. The cast is great and the storyline is also better - which is hard and rare for a serial which has a good first season. The amazing part is that I felt tired after finishing this drama, not because it was hard, stuffy or annoying, but because I was so focused, it felt like I was having lectures on heart surgery. Lol, but besides that it really is interesting - even though the clich├ęs and repeats are a bit annoying you still are able to like them… and expect them.
All in all, good watch!
