Master Post updated with subtitles for Episode 7.

Translator's Notes:

Abbreviations I'll be using:

  • HQ - Headquarters
  • CID - Criminal Investigation Division
  • MPD - Metropolitan Police Department (Tokyo)
  • NPA - National Police Agency
  • TDC - Tokyo Detention Center
  • CI - Confidential Informant

  • Notes on the screen to Kirari-chan:

If you change your point of view, you’ll be able to see a new world!

Change your way of thinking We’ll think about it together!

Everyone here understands you

Yeah! Everyone is here for you!

There’s no reason to rush into death!

Everyone’s here for you! Don’t overthink things!

There’s definitely a way to resolve this!

  • “Otaku” Soul (MIKI) - Otaku: Someone who has a hobby they’re so into that it hinders their social skills. Popular examples: Computers, trains, manga/anime. Please be careful with this word; you don’t want to come to Japan and run around going “I’m an Otaku!! Hee hee!” It could have a light, joking meaning to it with some people, but there are still many who have a very negative image of Otaku. Some people in other countries may think it means you’re a master of your topic of preference, it also has the connotation of being an obsessed, socially awkward loser. This is *NOT* comparable to the term Geek/Nerd. People think geeks/nerds are cool nowadays because of the tech/superhero/Harry Potter/whatever boom and they can share their hobbies openly. Otaku culture is still very much stigmatized in Japan. Think of it like… if you’re a big fan of Japan/anime/manga and someone calls you a weeaboo - that same kind of negative image.That’s why everyone in MPD thinks Miki is a weirdo - Not only is he an Otaku, he’s proud of it.
  • 3rd Degree Black Belt - Reika specifically mentions her black belt is in Karate. Karate belt colors go white→ yellow→ orange→ green→ blue→ purple→ brown→ red→ black. Sadly all those happy rainbow colors don’t mean much in the karate world. Getting to black means that you’re finally somewhat competent. From there, there are 10 levels of black belts. It can take 29+ years to reach 5th Degree Black and 40+ for 10th. And actually, at the 10th level - a group of super high-ranked karate masters have to choose you for the 10th level. This is often reserved for people who create a new style of karate.
  • PM - Personal Message/Mail
  • Emails recovered on the suicide victim's computer:
(AID to victim) You didn’t raise yourself. Cool down a bit and take a look at all the people around you.
(Victim to AID) There’s no one around me… Never has been. My life is my own. I don’t remember being told what to do by anyone else!
  • Messages on screen to Miki:

Hope: AID had a family but lost their son in an accident

MIKI: What? That’s all? Everyone dies sometime, right? He was just unlucky. But forget that. Someone hurry up and tell me a way to get meds to kill me!

Hope: How can you think like that?

Night Moon: I can’t believe this guy! How can you be so callous about someone’s death?

Beach: Don’t be so contrary! Be more positive!

Kurame: There’s no way to die like that with meds! Stop thinking about only death!

MIKI: If you won’t tell me an easy way to die, then butt out! lol

Yuri: Who the hell is this guy?! Fuck off!

Mi-tan: Your heart is hideous, too! You wanna die, then go kill yourself! Don’t bother others with it!

Fleeing Warrior: Apologize to AID!

Mi-tan: Nevermind. Don’t go fuck yourself, go kill yourself! DIE!

God Death: You butt out!

  • Police dorm - Many employers in Japan provide lower-cost housing for their employees. It’s usually the unmarried ones who live there because they’re so small, but some companies have subsidized housing for families. (Has anyone seen “Freeter, Ie wo Kau”? Like that) They tend to be a bit far from the office, though.
  • Mail RE: Miki’s kidnapping:

SUBJECT: Got him lol
Seishun Umanori AKA Miki Tsuyoshi, captured
In storage in an abandoned building in Adachi Ward. Should have heatstroke by noon tomorrow lol lol

  • Message Dr. Nakajima is reading:

AID to Victim: Are you afraid? Then shall I help grant your wish?

So... what'd y'all think of Episode 7?
Once again, not the most fascinating case since they made it more obvious than a giraffe hiding in a snow field...

but the stuff about Hinako and Shoji was kinda fun


So Hinako’s father abused her mother. Good she was able to get away from him… but I guess Hinako really was emotionless if she didn’t punish him earlier.

*Random thought* I wonder what the other kids said about Hinako in school. She didn’t seem as good at faking emotions as a child. I doubt she’d care what the other kids, thought, though, so I bet they tried bullying her, but when she didn’t care, they just avoided her and called her a freak.

OK, all the closeups on Yoko & Haru have me convinced - Japanese people must be born without pores!!! →

Am I a weirdo because I want to see cute flashbacks of young, “Koban Jidai” Shoji? It’d be interesting to see what he was like before he became a grumpy, murderer hater… when his sister was alive. Supposedly he was an Ace cop, so I wonder… Who knows, maybe he even SMILED sometimes. Like “Yay, we caught the bad guy! :D” rather than moving into hurricane territory

…DAFUQ is with this bouncy piano background music? I kept pausing the

video, thinking some random video was playing in another window on my computer. I understand wanting to drown out the cicadas, but something a little less cheerful for that scene. And the rest of the music they keep using is WAAAAAY too loud this episode! You can barely hear the characters!!!

I wonder how pissed Shoji is that he has to stay in the office while Todo can go out and do “real” detective work. I mean, he was basically foisting that role on her in Ep01 so he could go out in the field. Plus, he has Musekinin Hero blood n him. He’ll never be happy in an office :P

Seriously, how unlucky is it that a kid was right under a jumper? That’s like a one in a billion chance… And I guess I can see what they mean about suicides being selfish if you can’t even check to see if you’re gonna squash people. But then, suicidal people aren’t in their right minds in the first place…

*RANDOM* I’ve been checking into this rainbow cafe thing, and I don’t understand how the characters are able to order one little thing! All accounts I’ve read say you have to order from a set menu (entree, dessert, and drink) and it’s like ¥5000

Aha, that’s why we heard Kirari-chan speak up last episode… Gotta make us remember her for this ep, I guess

OK, Reika’s a weirdo, but I like her. She’s a nice person. And a badass

Hinako’s face at the “body heat” thing is hilarious. *DOES NOT COMPUTE!* 

What kind of monster would ruin organ donations for people?! I mean, how many crime story lines have we seen where someone went psycho and murdered people because a loved one couldn’t get a transplant because of some jerk?

AHA! *Confirmed!* Super obvious love line is super obvious.

“A present from me.” Atsuta is *really* pushing to have Hinako and Nakajima get together. Is it because he’s lonely and regrets leaving HIS doctor?

Lesson: If Shoji suddenly starts being nice to you, BE SUSPICIOUS

Kataoka Squad's leader is a secretary answering phones for the Atsuta Squad now?!

Kurashima finally has a chance to get Todo on his bike and he grabs Shimizu…

Good Lord, Hinako… you’re so dense! Why did you not realize immediately who did it?! Is it because you’re neglecting your notebook?!

Can we pause for a moment to comment on how cute Kirari-chan’s room is?! I wish my room looked that cute!! lol Maybe I should get a part-time job in a fun café for ideas

I wonder if Nakajima’s mad because the girl who could be getting killed is someone he knows. Also, why does the police report have a photo of her at work? o_O;

*Totally Random* I’m surprised Atsuta’s allowed to wear that color suit because when I wore that color coming to Japan, they advised me not to because white/off white is for Yakuza. And I’m a foreign woman. What. lol. Maybe he works undercover for the Gang Unit :P

Wait, how does Harashima have a pistol? Freaking CID works catching murderers and violent criminals but they need special permission to carry when actively track down a murder suspect?! Japanese laws are weird…

Speaking of finally, we FINALLY get to see Hinako have a chance to defend herself and… as expected, she has ZERO self-defence/bad-assery training. She’d better learn from Reika!

…and yet again Shoji has to save Hinako. Well, I guess it’s his fault she couldn’t cut the guy up.

How convenient Kirari-chan is passed out and can’t hear any of Hinako’s homicidal tendencies. Or Shoji's sneakiness.

No seriously, Hinako needs to learn from Reika. She can get basically two entire police squads of men to do what she says just by shouting at them. The “No, seriously” thing of Atsuta’s cracked me up, though.

It’s so weird to me how boyfriends and girlfriends in Japan call each other by their last names or with -san attached. Like… that’s the person you’re closest to!

I really hope this means the end of any possible sparks between Hinako and Shoji

Oh sure… after two lacklustre bad guys, they have to bring back the last one who made us feel something. (Minus Nakajima.) But don’t prisons have protocol for this kinda thing? Like making sure guards are with the doctors? I’ve seen way too many shows where doctors get sliced open with their own scalpels because they were unprotected. Not that they should ignore prisoners in pain or those who need medical attention… but some kind of protection in a room (or ambulance) full of sharp instruments when you’re transporting a total nutcase that has no problem with death doesn’t seem to be the craziest thing to ask for.

Man, it must be really hot where they’re filming. Yoko’s hair is totally messed up from sweat. And his hair is almost never messed up.

PS: To anyone who's sent me a message or comment recently, I'll try to get to them soon!
Things are a bit crazy with planning for the food festivals coming up!

Thanks for ep 7!!! ♥

About this ep: At this point, yes, we know that the murders are obvious to the utmost. But, I still like the dorama and Hinako a lot. :D

I'm super-mega-pissed off about goddamn Shoji ~sempai~. I mean, who the hell HE, from all the people, think he is????!! Yes, he's a detective (just like Hinako), but he's a very violent cop, uses underhanded methods to get information and on top of that he now steals things from his peers... Not exactly a behaviour model...

The fact that he has stolen Hinako's knife was a lot more than just a simple robbery and intromicion to the privacy of others: he knew that she doesn't feel fear, therefore he knows (and from ep 1 or 2 I think) that she doesn't fear to face the murderers. He knew that taking her knife could have endangered her (in fact, that happened), and he still went for that just to record a conversation that means/proves nothing.

Hinako didn't kill anybody and is much more efficient at work than him, yet, he have the face to imply that she should not be a detective like him? Like, dude, look at yourself.

At the end of the episode I was like: "Hinako, cut that b*tch"

Oh, I like this drama still... I just hate the cases! I tend to just tune them out now lol

I guess Shoji figures that he can do what he wants because he's stopping criminals? And that's what's most important? And that beating the crap out of someone isn't in the same league with killing them so it's OK? Since he suspects Hinako is a criminal, he sees his actions as justified... in a way, he might feel even more justified doing things to her because she's the worst - the ultimate betrayal. A cop gone bad. No wait, that doesn't make sense because he didn't beat the hell out of Harashima like he did with Otomo and Kenji... just punched him a couple times. But I guess maybe he gets a "lighter" punishment since many of the people killed themselves? Or... I dunno. Maybe he just went into protective brother mode because Hinako was being threatened by those two and that was before he knew she was nuts. Who knows. Shoji!Logic is weird. That, or the writing sucks.

Does Shoji know that she can't feel fear? He says he knows something is wrong with her, but I can't see him being able to figure out the truth yet. I think he suspects she has some weirdo fetish for murders and gore. We don't know if Mysterious Caller told him about her condition; all we know is he told him she carries a knife and intends to kill with it.

As for him taking the knife, I think it's because detectives are required to have special permission to carry weapons... so if she can't do her job without it, she shouldn't be in the field. Or if she can't protect herself, she should take a partner. She doesn't want a partner, so she takes the illegal knife, which isn't OK (Sure, Shoji goes out alone, too, but he can clearly handle himself without stabbing or shooting anyone.) Yes, it would protect her - but the police killing someone here is almost unheard of. They have to shoot warning shots into the air and even if they do shoot a suspect, they're trained to shoot them in the leg. I mean, I'm sure it happens...but it'd be very rare to see an officer kill a citizen. Usually that's reserved for SWAT.

If she, like him, wants to go out and provoke murderers but doesn't have the physical strength to do so, it's unsurprising she keeps almost getting herself killed. Bringing a knife with her would be in the grey-zone ethics-wise if she intended to protect herself, but she doesn't - she intends to kill. And that's the thing: She hasn't killed anyone YET. Because Shoji (And Nakajima) keeps busting in to take down the criminals before she has the chance. This time she didn't have the knife. If she were left alone with a killer for the necessary amount of time, she would kill them. An officer who goes in with intent to kill shouldn't be an officer. It's not their job to administer justice, just catch the criminals.

Same goes for Shoji - he shouldn't be beating the crap out of people... but at least in his case I can *kind of* understand his logic. He lost his sister and it hurts. Murderers are bad people. OK, still not justified, but I get it. "I feel like killing someone would be interesting" is not a valid argument. I can't see why they didn't just make Fujikawa an official CI - loads of officers get information out of sneaky people in the US and it's all sanctioned. Maybe Japan just has weird laws. That part doesn't bother me too much. Him going off on his own isn't good, and neither is stealing.

But honestly, I trust him loads more than Hinako. A person with volatile emotions is far less scary than someone with none at all. Just my two cents.

Thanks for subbing again!!

I understand your frustration with the cases being too easy to solve, but to be honest in many ways I am more interested in the psychology and the metacase than I am with the episodic stuff, so I guess that helps. Haha. I am just curious how they will work out the story to a good end (or if they will, its possible they will totally fail). Since this is based off a novel I am actually less surprised that the episodic cases are sort of weak. They were probably reaaally short in the book and are being drawn out for TV.

And yea, where *is* her notebook?? Seriously, they made a point of using it at the very beginning but we haven't seen it at all recently. Foolishness.

I'm interested in the psychology, too, but they're kind of failing at both. If they wanted to make it a crime story - Great! Focus on the cases and make them good. If they want to make it some psychological analysis of an emotionless cop - Great! But don't bore me with 35 minutes of a ridiculously obvious case only to give *MAYBE* 5 minutes of new information about Hinako's condition.

I hope the ending is good...Otherwise I'll cry giant waterfall tears of vexation at all the time I wasted on this. lol.

Honestly, I kind of wonder if they just forgot about it when they're filming. Or someone lost it and they're like "Whoops! Oh well!" Or someone accidentally sprayed it with fake blood, liquid nitrogen, or dropped a Poison Cake on it :P

Nakajima seems to clearly have an emotional investment in Hinako..... but we'll see how/if she responds. I'm more interested in Kurashima/Shimizu's reactions to it, lol. Kurashima will have a meltdown and Shimizu will probably be super grossed out.

I still like this drama and yoko......xDD
but yeah murders are getting lame.... i was really into it during epi1 - 5

i was wondering who's behind the calls that shoji is receiving...
definitely someone who wants to clash shoji and hinako....

Both Hinako and Shoji got problems so i dont blame shoji for his actions... The murderer hater and someone who wants to be a murderer or at least so curious if she could be a murderer...
and they we still didnt shoji's story... wasnt he supposed to be the best detective before his sister got killed...:3

Wouldn't it be funny if it were her dad himself? Like if he gave her the knife to try to kill him or another person because he wanted her locked up? Or if it were her mom... like her mom wasn't really dead, just crazy and locked up somewhere but still giving Hinako instructions to kill the bastard that had tortured them for so long.

Yeah, the two seem to be at odds with each other for sure!

Shoji was the Ace of the police department. He was in line to get his own Squad even earlier than Kataoka, who was kind of a boy wonder himself.

You're doing a great job with this series. Thanks very much!

What I'd like to know is why everyone is having such conniptions over Hinako's knife. I feel like I'm Crocodile Dundee, watching and thinking, "That's not a knife!" And in this episode, we have Harashima threatening people with a gun, and yet Hinako is the one Shoji yells at over her measly little pocket knife. What's up with that?

I like the revelation that Hinako's special spice mix that she puts on everything is a reminder from her mother to stay on the right path. Mom's looking after her, even from beyond the grave. And Hinako (who looks like she has Asperger's to me) is enough of a creature of habit to keep on using it.

In Japan, it's illegal to carry a blade over 6cm long. That'd be why they're freaking out over it. I mean, it's not big... but it's still illegal. As for the gun thing, he seemed pretty blindsided by the killer being Harashima, so he didn't expect Hinako to be going up against anyone with a gun. Usually only the police have guns. (Or Nakajima for some weird reason.) I don't think they expected gang involvement, either......... so he probably didn't expect her to be facing anyone more dangerous than like... Otomo - a guy who picked up what was available to attack

As much as Hinako uses it, though, that's kinda scary - She must have impulses to stray off the path pretty frequently, then! >.>;;

Well, it doesn't have to be a reminder every time. People on the Autism spectrum (which includes Asperger's) tend to be very habitual - some would say obsessively so. If Hinako has Asperger's, it would be very natural for her to put the stuff on everything. It only serves as a reminder and pulls her back in certain situations. And Hinako herself wouldn't think of it as anything other than a reminder of her mother.

Think of it like a seat belt - You always put it on, but it actually saves your life only on rare occasions. Or at least you hope they're rare.

Thanks for this episode!! And I agree with soo many of your points, how in the world does a koban guy have a gun?? Also Hinako had so many chances to take down the guy, at one point she could have just kneed him directly in the groin?? She wasn't even struggling at that's kind of off-putting but probably not Haru's fault as the script was most likely written that way.

And there's definitely no way Shoji and Hinako can get together, he might be able to work with her in the future depending on how this plays out but I think they killed that ship with this episode.

Oh and i've been to the Kawaii Monster Cafe before! You can totally order just one or two items off of the menu, and there are a lot of things that aren't SUPER expensive. I still think it's funny they film there, they definitely tone down the "weird" factor of it for the show.

First of all, thanks for the sub!

This ep was really obvious and I have no idea why they first introduce the murder of that intel guy, only to completely neglect it later when the suicides happen. I guess they want to prolong it, but still it felt a bit weird...
Am I the only one who thinks that Hinako visiting Nakajima is like a psychiatrist session and there're not many prisoners who get huuuuuge rooms without any furniture at all?
And lucky for Hinako Shoji always turns up right when she couldn't hold out another moment... /sarcasm The way the policeman stood over her, she could've perfectly kicked his junk...
And do they have to bring back that crazy chick???

And the rest of the music they keep using is WAAAAAY too loud this episode! << Indeed. I have to turn up the volume to listen to the dialogue. And when there's no dialogue I have to turn it down because it's too loud.

she has ZERO self-defence/bad-assery training << As a police she should have learned about self defense, right? Eventough she usually does indoor job that doesn't need that skill, they should have taught her about self defense when she was in police academy. I expect some awesome fight scene. But, in this episode, it seems like she knows nothing about it. She can't defense herself yet she try to kill Harashima?

I don't know why. This episode is a bit boring. But I still want to watch next episodes, though. I wanna know who has given her the knife.
