Katsuhisa Namase and Eiko Koike return in the Legal High finale

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".

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?

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!
9: ジャンピングエルボーアタック(東京都) 2013/12/11(水) 21:41:44.05 ID:x0byOEh50
That ugly hippie and the damn bad acting lawyer are just in the way. Okada too.
All of them are just bad actors.

14: クロイツラス(東京都) 2013/12/11(水) 21:44:00.51 ID:Ldp2mlwl0
He should settle things with Namase once and for all in the 3rd season
54: ランサルセ(奈良県) 2013/12/12(木) 01:04:48.65 ID:WebEtMdt0
But the fated encounter of the 2 that went on for the entire season ended in a gag since it was just about the death of some lab guinea pig. There's no need for the 2 to face each other anymore.
21: 逆落とし(チベット自治区) 2013/12/11(水) 22:52:52.99 ID:s1atxbM20
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.
22: エクスプロイダー(愛知県) 2013/12/11(水) 22:53:38.81 ID:iiPfOU5H0
Things are gonna get interesting
28: レインメーカー(埼玉県) 2013/12/11(水) 23:31:34.17 ID:ccX+xB2g0

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.
33: ネックハンギングツリー(catv?) 2013/12/11(水) 23:40:15.64 ID:lDNr+50X0
Everything is forgiven with Gakky's cuteness.

35: 河津落とし(チベット自治区) 2013/12/11(水) 23:42:40.82 ID:qLBWNX2R0
Gakky's acting has improved.
Looks like she's been working hard to the best of her abilities.
38: フェイスクラッシャー(やわらか銀行) 2013/12/11(水) 23:49:28.98 ID:jFCBDrVt0
They're probably laying down the foundations for the 3rd season
40: ファイナルカット(埼玉県) 2013/12/12(木) 00:19:08.45 ID:kcMa4by80
At least with this, the average size of boobies will be brought back up again to average
43: オリンピック予選スラム(東海地方) 2013/12/12(木) 00:37:27.94 ID:BeLKwjvzO
I wanted to see Kyoka play the female Komikado again

44: 頭突き(愛知県) 2013/12/12(木) 00:39:30.37 ID:2xqQ2xB30
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.
47: キン肉バスター(広島県) 2013/12/12(木) 00:45:34.48 ID:A8a1zOx70
But it's not like Season 1 was good because of Namase and Koike, though
51: 急所攻撃(チベット自治区) 2013/12/12(木) 00:55:10.73 ID:nQPexvWF0
That may be so, but one reason now is that Okada's team is making things more boring. Their idea of extending the parts with Koyuki isn't bad, but viewers would just think that "this woman should just get the death sentence".
I wanted Noriko Sakai to make a guesting, though.
53: レッドインク(埼玉県) 2013/12/12(木) 01:01:11.86 ID:09Yk4XCU0

That's true, but Season 1 was easier to understand as it was Sakai vs. Namase all throughout.
Season 2 is disorganized in that respect.
48: キン肉バスター(関東・甲信越) 2013/12/12(木) 00:47:13.06 ID:y1hM941qO
Miki and Sawachi finally return, huh. And Ito, too.
49: ジャンピングエルボーアタック(関東・甲信越) 2013/12/12(木) 00:48:09.10 ID:ZF09h+5XO
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
55: オリンピック予選スラム(山陽地方) 2013/12/12(木) 01:07:25.49 ID:rnAZItVVO
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
45: リバースネックブリーカー(愛知県) 2013/12/12(木) 00:42:57.85 ID:e+q8zdIo0
So Legal High will finally begin, huh.
