Guilty Akuma To Keiyakushita Onna DVD English Subtitle
by Hideo Cota Date Added: Wednesday 02 March, 2011
Guilty Akuma to Keiyakushita Onna (Guilty, The Woman Who Made A Deal With The Devil), a police detective serial about a woman committing revenge killings. 15 years earlier, a teen-ager (Kanno Miho) is falsely imprisoned for murdering her brother-in-law and nephew. While in prison, her sister kills herself and the mother goes insane. Her entire family having been destroyed, Kanno methodically plan her revenge against the real murderers. Immediately after her release, she tracks down and blackmails each conspirator into committing suicide. Soon, a police detective (Tamaki Hiroshi) suspect these “suicides” are related and looks for the connection. His investigations lead to Kanno, and naturally, fall in love with her. And this is where the series fall apart: As a detective mystery drama, the story was interesting and my wife and I were very impressed with Kanno’s acting ability: Full of hate and repressed fury, she kills with cold, mechanical precision, and we SYMPATHIZED with her. But when the two begin their clumsy cop versus murderer romance dance, it was too awkward to watch. The story became too ridiculous and we stopped caring for the characters: a fatal flaw for a drama. At this point, we were just waiting for the story to end.
The English captioning was uneven: In the beginning, it was pretty good, and close enough MOST of the time so the plot could be followed; but there were enough subtle translation errors to leave the viewer puzzled.
Bottom line: I can’t recommend this series. The first half was great, but the latter half and ending were so lame that it ruined the entire eleven episode program.
