Meitantei Katherine SP2 "Kieta Sozokunin" (20 March 2016, TV Asahi) is based on Yamamura Misa's 1982 mystery novel "Kieta Sozokunin". After solving a series of mysterious murders the previous year, US Vice President's daughter, Katherine Turner (Charlotte Kate Fox) returns to Kyoto, Japan. She goes to see her friend and chaperone, assistant university professor, Hamaguchi Ichiro (Tanihara Shosuke). Through Ichiro, she meets a student of his, Tanaka Yoshimi (Kurokawa Tomoka), the sole successor to a thousand year old traditional Kyoto house. Yoshimi is seeking Ichiro's counsel regarding her predicament: her parents wants her to enter a marriage of convenience with a wealthy stranger. Katherine empathizes with her since she herself is currently in a similar situation. Then, the next day, Katherine and Ichiro are shocked to hear that Yoshimi has been kidnapped! According to Yoshimi's father (Murata Takehiro) and mother (Fujiyoshi Kumiko), they already paid the kidnapper's ransom demand of 50 million yen, which was somehow scraped together at the last minute by Tanaka Joji (Ishiguro Ken), Yoshimi's Hawaii-based businessman uncle who is in Japan for work reasons. Even so, Yoshimi has not been returned. Sensing Yoshimi is in the hands of a cruel and treacherously greedy abductor, Katherine devises a way to contact the culprit, and to help save Yoshimi... Meanwhile, a female employee from an apparel company is murdered. Kyoto Police headed by Police Lt. Hashiguchi Daigo (Ukaji Takashi) investigates the case. Inside the room of the victim, they find a photo of Ichiro...

Notes:
.Rar file includes EN subs in .srt and .ass formats.
So far, there is no raw for this SP. Frankly, I just wanted to be done with this, before Ohchan's drama comes out. I used a low-quality webrip. Will retime the subs once good raws come out. For those who cannot wait, here's the dl link for the webrip (it freezes in some moments, but other than that, it's tolerable).
For those who prefer a streaming link, here.
Update 2: I have included retimed .ass subs for Chinese hardsubs. Magnet:

Update 3: Subs for DoA raw is already added. Link for webrip raw is now removed.

Meitantei Katherine 2015 SP (5 Sept. 2015, TV Asahi) is a mystery suspense story based on the Yamamura Misa's 1979 novel, "Hana no Hitsugi". It stars Charlotte Kate Fox as Katherine Turner, the lovely and rich daughter of the US vice president. Katherine is known in Japan as a celebrated socialite. But not a lot of people know that she also possesses sharp insight and brilliant deductive skills. She is in Kyoto, looking for people from the ikebana world, with whom she can partner with in running her family's flower arrangement business in the US. As a result, all the top schoolmasters of the flower arrangement society are lining up and currying favor with her, hoping to be chosen. These include the masters of the three top schools of ikebana: Togo Ryufu (Ryu Raita) schoolmaster of Higashi-ryu; Nishikawa Hou (Enoki Takaaki) of Kyo-ryu, and Yamano Hanako (Hamada Mari) of Shin-ryu. Katherine also wants to meet with top ikebana artist Ogawa Maiko (Fueki Yuko) whom she met in New York and had become her close friend. However, Maiko has not been answering her calls, and seems to be avoiding her for some reason. Meantime, Hamaguchi Ichiro (Tanihara Shosuke), an associate professor at a Kyoto university is forced by his uncle and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hamaguchi Yukio (Kotaro Satomi) to serve as Katherine's escort throughout her stay. Ichiro is not pleased with having to look after a rich socialite, and Katherine senses it, thus the two got off to a bad and awkward start. But then, Maiko is mysteriously murdered. Katherine vows to get to the bottom of the case and to find her killer, while delving deeper into the profit-driven and intrigue-ridden side of the flower arrangement world...
