Legal High

Summary of Legal High (from AsianWiki):

Attorney Kensuke Komikado (Masato Sakai) loves money, prestige & women, but also has a 100% winning rate when it comes to his legal cases. Machiko Mayuzumi (Yui Aragaki) is a rookie attorney who holds a strong sense of justice & passionate about protecting the weak. She is also awkward and rigid in her work.

One day, due to unforeseen circumstances, Machiko Mayuzumi begins to work at Kensuke Komikado’s law office. The two attorneys constantly clash, but in the courtroom they cooperate to fight as one.

Thoughts on this drama
Was this a little too over the top or were the outrageous situations and comedic elements just right?
Was this an overall enjoyable watch?
Was 10 episodes too short for a drama such as this?
Do you like Sakai Masato in a goofy role such as Komikado or more of a hardcore motherfucker in Hanzawa Naoki?
What was up with dude’s hair in this series. It looked like it needed a cast credit of its own.
Was Aragaki Yui uglied up or what?
Do you think a lawyer like Komikado would have actually won his cases or get thrown out of court for his shenanigans?
