Kazuya and I will be subbing WOWOW’s Marks no Yama. Adapted from Takamura Kaoru’s famous bestseller, the drama is a psychological thriller which intersperses police investigation with the gradual unravelling of a troubled young man who calls himself Marks. Takamura was a famous writer of detective novels in the 1990s until she decided to withdraw from the genre partly because she found it difficult to reconcile her politically motivated commentary with detective fiction.
We can never resist a WOWOW production, and suffice to say that the ending of episode 1 made our hairs prickle and left us wanting more.
More information on the drama is available here.
Familiarise yourself with the big cast of characters.
