Has anyone else been watching Fukuie Keibuho no Aisatsu this season? I’ve been watching it every week since it started airing but I never ended up writing anything about it, I guess I just forgot to. If you haven’t heard of the drama before now it’s a pretty typical detective drama, and the main character is a detective called Fukuie who has some pretty…Let’s just say strange habits. Despite that she’s an investigating prodigy and ends up solving incident upon (supposedly) unsolvable incident. Fukuie Keibuho is getting pretty close to its last episode, which is kind of sad but I found some news today saying that some special footage is going to be released that won’t be aired in the TV version. Keep reading on for more details about it.
The never before seen, not for TV footage is going to be released on YouTube in two parts. I suppose footage might have been a bad way to describe what the videos are. They’re more than just bloopers or behind the scenes, they’re actually mini episodes about Fukuie and her life before and just as she joined the Metropolitan Police Department as an investigator. Both parts will feature Fukuie(Dan Rei) as the narrator and the way they are done will somewhat resemble an investigation. There’s no solid details on how long each clip is going to run for but the first was released today. The second part of the footage will be released on the 11th, on the same day Episode 9 is released. The annoying thing is that you won’t be able to view them without a Japanese IP Address because of the strict, draconian copyright laws Japan has that somehow are even observed on YouTube with free footage. If you’re living in Japan and have some free time please give it a watch and tell me what you thought of it.
