    Zen Seizaki, a public prosecutor at Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office, is investigating a case of illegal clinical research related to a drug company and a university. During the investigation, he finds a file that Shin Inaba, an anesthesiologist, kept, which includes blood that is mixed with hair, skin, and a paper written with letter F. As he investigates, he realized there's a hidden plot that is connected with a huge election as well as to a certain person who is in charge of it.

    Episode 1

    Everything becomes F.

    So it begins with Seizaki investigating a scandal hitting a pharmaceutical company, and there are a lot of interesting pieces to the puzzle stemming from that blood-stained document that has the letter F written all over it. He goes digging around and sees that something's amok about the mayoral election coming up. But then two of his colleagues end up biting the dust as first there's Inaba. And then after going into somebody's apartment, Fumio appears to have committed suicide by hanging himself. While there wasn't much going on besides building for the majority of the episode, that ending really changed everything. Now, I'm intrigued with this show.

    And now, it's onto the next episode as Amazon was generous to give us three episodes ahead of its TV broadcast.

      Episode 2

      It's not suicide, it's murder.

      Fumio's death is being ruled a suicide, but Seizaki is not so convinced. So he continues to dig deeper as he interrogates "Emiko Hiramatsu" to try and get to the bottom of things. It seems kind of odd that a young lady like Hiramatsu would flirt with geezers who are at least 40 years older, but it is what it is. And once again, something game-changing happens at the end as with the first episode it was Fumio found dead, and now Nomaru the mayoral candidate has appeared out of nowhere. Something looks shady about that guy seeing that he's the favorite to win the election.

        Episode 3

        Legalizing death.

        So it turns out that Nomura will actually help Seizaki on his case, and his plan is to create Shiniki, a special zone where new laws can be tested out, and that he's manipulating the election so that Itsuki would win as he wants somebody the public can buy into. But then Seizaki finds out the truth. Hiramatsu and the seducer are the same person named Ai Magase, and she drugs her victims so that they are pushed to killing themselves. And Itsuki has some grand scheme cooked up with that PR stunt of showing a bunch of drugged victims jumping off a tower to their deaths. I had a feeling something was amiss, and now Seizaki knows that while these victims committed suicide, but it's not by choice as Magane is behind it all. So three episodes all end with shocking developments.

        So watching three episodes before the show begins its TV broadcast, it's going to be awhile before I watch the next episode. While I like the drama, the leadup feels pretty dull. Anyway, I'll need to sit down and see where this show stands before making a decision.
