Master Post updated with subtitles for Episode 8. Get them here.

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
  • CO - Correctional Officer (Prison Guard)
  • PP - Prefectural PoliceMO - Modus Operandi (Methodology, approach)

  • Kake Soba - Hot buckwheat noodles in broth

  • Tanuki - AKA raccoon dog. AKA, super cute animal. It’s also used a lot in Japanese folklore - they’re really happy animals who love music, dance, and drinking. They’re kind of like foxes, though - they move playing tricks and are great shape-shifters. Unfortunately, unlike foxes, they tend to be absent-minded and gullible. Mario never really quite showed us how cute these lil guys were, did he?

  • Dr. Nakajima's chart (My version):


So... what'd y'all think of Episode 8?
I liked that the cases were background stories 'to the characters' stories


I suppose Maki-chan wasn’t a useless character after all. I think I re-watched her “Why would he take his pants off?” *everyone’s heads snap to her* scene like 10 times! xD; I had the same thought though! It was my first. My 2nd was "That sick %^&*()!!!"

Kurashima’s jealousy is cute. But weird. He doesn't freak out when Atsuta sends Shoji to a hotel with her right in front of him, though. Selective jealousy, I guess

It would’ve been disturbing, but they could’ve made the dog murder *slightly* more realistic than a ripped up plushie and a Halloween prop hand

Why is the Kataoka Squad so pissed at the Atsuta Squad for Tsuya getting away? It’s not like Shimizu was guarding her or something.

Freaking government letting genius serial killers lounge around all day reading books in offices with butlers waiting on them… Wish I were a genius

The more I hear Nakajima talk, the less his story arc makes sense. He's got too much sympathy for murderers and doesn't think of them as monsters. But it was Hayasaka who was the idealist and Nakajima got sucked into the darkness to kill them? But he seems completetely over it now? What...

Seems kinda silly to assign a bodyguard if she’s going to be alone in her room most of the time. Yanno, where people can come in and attack her.

Hayashi Kento has pretty handwriting!!

Nooooooooooo! Kataoka wasn't so annoying he needed to be killed off!! I hope he's OK!!

Holy crapmonkies! Those killer eyes! ~_~;; The make-up/props dept finally gets something right


Loose ends I wanna see tied up next ep:

  • Someone calling Ishigami-sensei Goddess of Death. Atsuta hinted there’d be a crazy reaction and I want to know what that’d be

  • Confirmation the Kataoka Squad caught that Goda guy from Ep01. They can't keep picking on Atsuta Squad if they're lazy slackers who abandon cases!

  • Shoji getting dragged to the Mo Mo Cafe. He owes Hinako. Hey, maybe for her "Goodbye Party" they can go there so we can say goodbye to Reika & Kirari

  • Shoji can apologize. He's been a jerk. For *almost* no reason. And he kept telling her she was wrong on cases when she wasn't. And he almost yanked her arm off at her friend's crime scene and grabbed her by the collar in his rage at Otomo. (And neither the Chief who seems to love her or the guy who has a crush on her stopped her.)

  • Hinako can apologize. She wasn't honest with her partner, either. No wonder they didn't trust each other. That doesn't mean I want these apologies to lead to some big lovefest, though. It should just be a mutual respect. Then they can keep on working together. Unless she wants to quit because she found the answer to her question.

  • Atsuta & Ishigami can finally out themselves as a former couple. I mean, it felt totally obvious to me, but I'm gonna go nuts if they don't address it.

  • Shimizu & Maki-chan. Those two would be cute together. Maybe because of the way he was trying to care for her when she was freaking out over her friend's murder.

  • It feels kinda cruel that Kenji is the only murderer who didn't get to come back in the story at all. I mean, he even got totally dissed in dreamland by Hinako

  • WTF happened to her father?! Is he still being an asshole somewhere?! Did he have another family?! IS THIS WEIRDO KILLER LADY ACTUALLY HER SISTER AND HER FATHER JUST SPAWNS PSYCHOPATHS?! Who knows. Maybe that's why he'd be so mad at Hinako - she'd be his second nutso daughter.

  • Is Nakajima seriously going to be kept locked up in that little government snow palace for eternity? He should be allowed out to go to the goodbye party in the Mo Mo Cafe.

Did you guys see the Chronicle x 「ON」crossover?? 

Also, Hayashi Kento in a new movie?! What?!

I guess next is the last episode.... Our journey together is almost finished! あともう少し!

do s dekka and samurai sensei wasnt on aired fuji tv, or am I wrong?
just like how they can promote ryo and keiko's movie in janiben but not tacchon's clover...(or did they promote it and i just forgot)..xD

thanks for this as always♥

Yeah, it's just kind of weird. Like, they're employing these guys but they can't promote their own stuff? You'd think they could give it like a 30-second shout-out. Especially movies. It's ridiculous to not be able to promote movies. It's not like they compete with TV shows, minus getting people out of the house. And the fact Chronicle is broadcast on Kansai Network...... which most of the country doesn't even get. But I guess I kind of see the logic in a non-compete thing. Still, Yasu should've been able to promote his "Fragile" thing since Nagase came on to promote it. So a "Hey, remember that thing he asked you to watch? Well, extra reason to because I'm gonna be on! :D" I think they only talked about it after the fact... and only in passing.

Well, it just made sense that HINAko would turn out to be the real one :P I feel bad that 'she' had to scorch her tongue on all those chillies. Too bad they didn't have the other guys pretending to be Shoji and then Yoko busts in to kick their butts. lol.

in my country, im used to it...hehe i mean there's this famous noontime show where every host are really famous but then sometimes we'll still get surprised to movie promotion on their social media accnts but that movie was never mentioned during the noontime show...unless if the movie is produced by the same station...

ahahah Hina's effort was wow....xDD
Its mean but i really thought that everyone will try to eat it...xDD

Why Shoji was her bodyguard but they just stayed all the time in two separate rooms.
Why Nakajima sensei lives in total white now.
Why there was no Reika in this ep. She's the best thing that happened to this drama XD (Shoji opening his room door with the toothbursh in his mouth is a close second).
I feel like after the 5th episode, after that storyline was closed, the drama lost a lot of its appeal. I don't get why Hinako is so full of doubts about whether she will kill or not somebody (like, seriously, I find this thing SO stupid), and I honestly don't care much.

About that promo for the drama on Chronicle, I guess it was because they're both on Fuji tv?

Thanks for subbing so far!!! 1 more episode to go :( Appreciate it a lot...

Thank you for episode 8... I can't believe it's almost finished already, so sad :-(

Kurashima's reaction when he found out Shoji has been to Hinako's house is priceless ^^ But I felt like Shoji had a faint smile on his face when he confirmed to Kurashima that he is her bodyguard... like he's taking pleasure to get Kurashima mad about it. But maybe that's only my thinking ^^

I don't understand either why they stay in separate rooms, of course it's wrong having them staying in the same hotel room, but maybe in communicating rooms? (most hotels should have this kind of rooms for like when families with young children come) Or at least a guard in front of her hotel door!!!

and OMG the woman at the end is so scary °0° but I must admit she has a very nice smile ^^

Is it me or Nakajima is practically telling Shoji that he has feelings for Hinako.... I mean it's totally obvious he likes her... or again it's me wishing for this ^^

Anyway, I can't wait to see tonight's episode... I hope everyone get's out this story safe and sound!!!

I was so glad both Hinako and Nakajima called Shoji out on his 'holier than thou' attitude. His tendency to belt the crap out of apprehended murderers is no better than Hinako's desire to see if she will kill someone. In fact, she has more control over her actions than he does. I'm so mad at him for making Hinako resign.

There's something not quite right about Nakajima ... he still creeps me out.

It will be interesting to see who the blue eyed woman is, though I'm a bit annoyed they've thrown in a mysterious stranger at the last minute.

This episode just about finished me off! Shoji with that toothbrush... XD

Also I'm glad I wasn't the only one laughing at the terrible dead dog plushie and the 'crows' where you could clearly see their fake prop beaks. Would it really have hurt so much to shell out for a piece of *real* fur?

I've seen screencaps of the ON x Chronicle thing but I haven't been able to track down a copy of the episode - do you know where I would be able to find it? It looks hilarious.

It's pretty cute how that scene wasn't even in the script. Somehow I feel almost like that was whiny, bratty Yoko coming out a bit in his improvisation. "Waaaah, I can't sleep without my own pillow!!!"

I kinda get it because dramas have crap budgets (especially for all the big-name actors they had to pay here), but I've seen more realistic-looking toys than that :(

I'd try the ariehen_sekai comm for Chronicle.

Yeah, I know what you mean! I love his brattiness though. <3

I can understand the crap budget issues when it comes to props - I do a lot of cosplay and LARPing and sourcing stuff for them on a budget can be hard! But fur isn't *too* difficult to get hold of... I don't even think they could afford a fake Halloween hand, it was somebody's actual hand covered in fake blood clutching a plushie...

Thanks for that, I've joined ariehen_sekai and watch the ON episode of Chronicle. I may have laughed loudly. A lot.

How can I get your english subtitle. I'm just a J-Drama watcher, I can't find English subs from elsewhere, you're my last hope. I beg your kindness^^.
