Here are the drama notes for "Akuma ga Kitarite Fue wo Fuku" 2018 SP shown on NHK. Warning: Spoilers Ahead!!

Btw, this was the 2nd part installment of NHK's Kindaichi Kosuke Mystery Specials, the first one was "Gokumontou" which was shown in 2016. Though at first, I was a bit disappointed when I heard that a different actor was going to play the detective role, I was pleased with this SP nonetheless. Yoshioka Hidetaka's "Kindaichi" version was refreshingly different. His Kindaichi was somewhat like everyone's favorite uncle, a grey-haired, gentle oji-san, played with a hint of bashful boyish charm. Despite some unanswered issues with this story, it went beyond my expectations. I think it was smartly written, and I even enjoyed it much more than the previous "Gokumontou" SP. And it was dark! Like WOWOW dark. Though I haven't seen them, I'm sure the past adaptations watered down the shocking elements of the story, but this one? Oh boy, NHK really went all out and even beyond the normal story line...

"Akuma ga Kitarite Fue wo Fuku" (28 July 2018, NHK) is the second installment following "Gokumontou" SP shown in 2016. This time, Yoshioka Hidetaka portrays the famous detective Kindaichi Kosuke. Right after the war, a viscount named Tsubaki Hidesuke (Masuoka Toru) commits suicide after being suspected in a tragic jewelry shop robbery. His family then experiences strange occurrences. His wife Akiko (Tsutsui Mariko) thinks Hidesuke has come back from the dead to haunt her. However, their daughter Mineko (Shida Mirai) believes her father had been tormented by someone he called "the devil" so she asks Kindaichi to take part in a seance, meant to contact Hidesuke's spirit. That night, Mineko's great uncle is killed in a locked room. Kindaichi goes to Suma, Kobe, believing that the answer to the identity of the culprit can be found there. There, he discovers a stone lantern, the only remaining part of a destroyed villa where a noble family used to frequent before the war. On it were the written words, "The devil was born here"...
