Episode Two of Detective Yugami 刑事ゆがみ is all about love and lies – in the most unexpected ways. It begins with Hanyu (Kamiki) teaching kids the value of telling the truth. As expected, Yugami (Asano) butts in arguing that lying is a practice one has to experience, and once a lie is told, there is a need for subsequent lies to propagate the manufactured ‘truth’.
And since I’m watching the drama in Viu, what better way than to use their Episode 2 description to start my review:
Yugami and Hanyu investigate an attempted sexual assault case. Despite hospitalization, the victim refuses to press charges or cooperate with the investigation. The mystery deepens when the scene does not correspond to the victim’s testimony. [watch Detective Yugami here]
