Katsuhisa Namase and Eiko Koike will be coming back in the finale of Fuji TV's Legal High (12/18).
Namase plays Choichiro Miki, rival of Kensuke Komikado (Masato Sakai), while Koike plays Kimie Sawachi and Masato Yano plays Takao Ide -- all three coming from the Miki Law firm. They have only appeared in the first episode of this season, and went on a trip around the world after consoling Komikado who lost a case for the first time, but will be coming back for the finale and will play a huge role in the outcome of the story.
When Namase was told about public sentiments like, "Legal High is nothing without Namase and Koike......", he commented, "That's exactly true".
"But if there will be a 3rd season, we might still not be in it again (laughs). The difference from Season 1 is that we're not in the drama and because of that, things have become more extravagant". Koike follows this up by saying: "Because simpleton opponents like us aren't there anymore. We were probably too shallow, and the scriptwriter Kosawa-san probably wasn't able to write something up".

- 結局生瀬のスケジュールが合わなかったから急遽岡田じゃないの生瀬はこの間まで舞台やってよな(´・ω・｀)Wasn't it just because of Namase's packed schedule that they had to suddenly switch to Okada?
Namase was in a stage play until recently, right?
- 何がラブアンドピースだよあんなヒッピー臭い女出す時点で空気も時代も読めてないウジテレビのまけだよWhat's with that love & peace gig?
It's Uji-TV's fault for not reading the times by making a hippie woman like that appear on the show.
Huh? It's the finale already!
- あのブスヒッピーと演技ド下手クソな弁護士が邪魔すぎ。岡田も。そろいも揃って演技下手。That ugly hippie and the damn bad acting lawyer are just in the way. Okada too.
All of them are just bad actors.
He should settle things with Namase once and for all in the 3rd season
- 岡田チーム急に分かりやすい悪役に変更ってｗｗｗｗよっぽと評判が悪かったのかな古美門が毛布に篭るとこ最高だな、パロディー元分かった人少ないだろなAnd then Okada's team suddenly turns into these obvious villains wwww
They must've really had bad reviews.
The part where Komikado hid under the blanket was the best. I don't think a lot of people know where that was parodied from, though.
Things are gonna get interesting
In the end, the flow of the first season that went with Namase sending over these various assassin lawyers to defeat Sakai, but Gakky and Sakai beating each one up while fighting between themselves was much better.
Everything is forgiven with Gakky's cuteness.
- ガッキーの演技上手くなってるコツコツ自分ができる範囲で努力してるGakky's acting has improved.
Looks like she's been working hard to the best of her abilities.
They're probably laying down the foundations for the 3rd season
At least with this, the average size of boobies will be brought back up again to average
I wanted to see Kyoka play the female Komikado again
- 生瀬が11月末まで舞台だったからこうするしかなかったんだろ最終回に再び戻ってくると一話後の雑誌には載ってたしNamase was busy with his stage play until November so this was all that they could do.
It was also indicated in the magazine that came out after episode 1 that he'll return in the finale.
But it's not like Season 1 was good because of Namase and Koike, though
Miki and Sawachi finally return, huh. And Ito, too.
They didn't have to resort to Miki here, they could have done with the other dastardly lawyers and just had them keep mudslinging with Komikado
As long as the actor's schedules permit and Uji-TV give their go signal, then we'll definitely be seeing a 3rd season of Legal High
So Legal High will finally begin, huh.
