Remote was a 2002 drama that starred Kyoko Fukada as Ayaki Kurumi and Domoto Koichi as Himuro Kosaburo, it was based upon a popular 10 volume manga series. Himuro was once a fast rising star on the Metro Police Force until a year before where he failed, though the true details eventually come out, on solving a crime and his girlfriend was killed. Thinking he was the one who killed her, Himuro has locked himself in his basement at home and never leaves, though he still works for the Police but an assistant from the force does all the outside work.
I certainly enjoyed the drama, beat my expectations for it, stayed mostly true to the manga stories only real difference was Ayaki in the manga dressed so much more sexy than the drama, Kyoko though looked great thoughout the series. I'd give this this a solid recommendation, enjoyable and the series moved along at a nice pace, easy enough drama to find at quite a few sites. Check the next few post for a quick recap of all the episodes plus many screenshots.
