Since Shigeki’s wife passed away, he has raised his daughter Ema alone. Ema is now a high school student. Like most father and daughter relationships, they sometimes have arguments, but they still rely on each other. One night, Ema does not return from her part-time job. She is found dead. Shigeki falls into deep despair. A couple of days later, Shigeki receives a phone call. The caller gives him the name and address of the man who killed his daughter. After hesitating, Shigeki goes to the apartment that the caller told him about. There, Shigeki discovers a video showing his daughter's brutal murder. He then faces Atsuya, who just came home to his apartment. Shigeki kills Atsuya. The media goes into a frenzy covering the story. Public opinion is divided between Shigeki's actions. Shigeki chases after the main culprit Kaiji. (Source: AsianWiki) ~~ Adapted from the novel "Samayou Yaiba" by Higashino Keigo. Edit Translation

WHO ARE WE TO JUDGE?

This drama prompted me to do something I never do: write a review, cause it had such a profound impact that it raised a debate in me in view of my profession.

Samayou Yaiba also called The Hovering Blade is The Japanese drama I was looking for for so long. A captivating series of six episodes that prompts us to think about the impact of social justice or revenge around us, how the police deal with their own procedures, the juvenile delinquency and its consequences, the impact of the press and its management of information, but above all, how far should we allow our pain and compassion to dictate our thinking?

This drama definitely deserves to be known, I really like the way it was filmed with the absence of BGM in almost every scene. It reveals a silence full of doubts and questioning of each protagonist. With that ultimate question, what if it were you in my place, what would you have done?

I admit it’s not always easy to watch because of the violence of some scenes but it’s so well written and it reconciled me with the Japanese drama, they always knew how to treat difficult subjects in a clinical way without real criticism, just by exposing facts.
