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...
