One of the detective dramas KIKU used to air regularly was Investigator Mariko, or Inspector Mariko. This series aired on KIKU around the late 90’s through 2010. In one of my earlier blogs, I asked if this was a series you wanted to see again and the response was very positive.
So we are bringing Investigator Mariko back! We will kick off her return with a two hour special on Wednesday, September 10th (during our Autumn Specials week), and the drama (#7 in the series) will begin three weeks later on Thursday, October 2nd, at 9pm, following the conclusion of Partners 10.
Investigator Mariko is about a crime lab in the Kyoto Police Department. Mariko Sakaki, the main character, is a lab agent who practices forensic medicine using blood, hair and DNA samples in addition to traditional investigative methods to solve crimes.
Don’t miss the Investigator Mariko special on September 10th at 8pm!
