Now for the basic premise: Madarame, a big corporate law firm, wants to look a little more "diversified" so the president decides to establish a criminal law department in the firm. Of course, he also pulls two of his best corporate lawyers (the not-entirely-scrupulous Sada-sensei and the efficient pro-wrestling-loving Tachibana-sensei) to staff this department. Sada is the head, and Miyama is also recruited for his successful record as a criminal defense attorney. They take on their first case, which is to defend a man accused to murdering the president of some company that had bad business with him recently. The man has all the evidence stacked against him, but somehow, of course, Miyama & co manage to find the 0.1% that proves the guy's innocence.
Needless to say, there are bundles of opportunity for clashes and giggles as the strange but brilliant Miyama enters the stuffy world of Madarame Law Firm. Jun's chemistry with Eikura Nana is something I've been convinced of ever since seeing them together in Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru, and I'm awfully happy that I get to see her trade lines with Jun once again, though this time in a much bolder fashion. Her character here reminds me of her character Anna from Debikuro-kun (which she starred in with Aiba), and her no-nonsense attitude goes so well with Jun's random impertinences. I loved the part where he thought she was a paralegal. And the part where he hitches a free ride off of her money and then proceeds to make fun of her phone cover. She gets apt revenge though, when she elicits a huff of pain from him with a Sling Blade at the end (relax, guys, it's a type of handshake). What I find most adorable though, is that despite her disapproval of some of Miyama's ways, she still allows herself to take part in his "experiments" and "re-enactments." It's like she can't resist his odd charm.
MatsuJun's chemistry with Kagawa-san is funny in an entirely different way, since Kagawa is in the role of an older superior. Jun does bring out the sly fox in Kagawa though. You'll see when you watch the scene where he slips his car keys into Jun's hands and swings himself onto a public bus while his slack-jawed subordinate is left to the hot pursuit of a bunch of corporate thugs. There's just so much humor in this legal drama, so much of these little details in life (such as Kagawa getting the miffy cold shoulder from his wife for forgetting their anniversary) that make it so much more than a mere legal drama. I'm looking forward to seeing Kagawa get won over, and vice versa with Jun too.
