Movie Info

When Fuji TV's popular crime drama "Unfair" first debuted on Japanese TV in 2006, it was a much welcomed return to the type of hard boiled "keiji" (detective) drama that used to dominated the airwaves in the 70s. While nowhere near as long lived as such Japanese classics like "Taiyo Ni Hoerou" (Howl At The Sun), "G-Men '75", "Tokusou Saizensen" (Frontline Investigation) and the landmark "Seibu Keisatsu" (Western Police) series, "Unfair" made it's mark by introducing Japanese audiences to a decidedly different type of strong female police detective character.

Based on a mystery novel series by Hata Takehiko, the series followed the exploits of top Police Inspector, Yukihira Natsumi (Shinohara Ryoko) who was a member of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police force's elite Homicide division and the daughter of a slain high ranking Police Investigator. While she had a distinguished career as a police officer and detective, her brash and sometimes unconventional approaches to police work often got her in trouble with her conservative superiors. Her troubled past had also caused her much pain and resulted in the breakup of her marriage and estrangement from her 5 year old daughter. Yet her exceptional talents, sharp mind and striking good looks made her a force to be reckoned with.

The drama series lasted for about 11 episodes and was soon followed by a special "Unfair: The Special - Code Breaking - Angoukaitoku" (Unfair: The Special - Code Breaking Crytoanalysis).

The series was very much in the same style and attitude as the sensational FOX series "24".

Not bad. i thought it was true to the series. I thought this was better than the Special(code breaking) i like how they tied the series, the special and this together. i really liked this whole series. Yukihira is a great character and the little girl who played Mio is such a cutie. when she gave Yukihira the birthday card, i was all "AWWWWWW"
