That peaceful expression plus no evidence of a struggle leads police to initially rule her death as a suicide. But upon further examination, the cause of her death is determined to be suffocation, and semen is also found at the scene of the crime. As detectives Rokuro Fujisawa and Yoshitaka Ichimura investigate the crime, they discover that a car with foreign license plates owned by a young priest was seen near the crime scene the night of the incident. Further complicating the matter, the priest was the person who sent the express delivery envelope. Was the priest involved in the crime? “Black Gospel” is another fascinating tale from the master of intrigue, Seicho Matsumoto. “Pro Bono (TV Asahi),” airs on Thursday, Sept. 17, at 8 p.m. A young, mentally retarded boy is wrongfully accused of murder, but his family lacks the means to hire an attorney to defend him.

From that point on, Kiriko is determined to take revenge against Otuska. “Mission to Kill Special,” airs on Friday, Sept. 18, at 8 p.m. Shigotonin are assassins hired by victims of crime to avenge wrongs committed against them.

Soon after, Kyoko met Kinako, a Labrador retriever puppy. Despite Kyoko’s efforts, Kinako repeatedly fails her tests, but Kyoko refuses to give up.

In 2007, they converted part of the hospital facility to accommodate people who wanted to anonymously deposit unwanted babies. Response was overwhelming and soon mothers from across the country were coming to deposit babies at the cradle.

He steals the lances of several families, which creates an unlikely alliance amongst them as they scheme to avenge their losses. In the series, Kotoji’s desire to settle down and spend the rest of his days quietly continues to be disrupted by samurai seeking revenge for the stolen lances. And as Kotoji finds himself picking up the sword again, he also deals with love and raising a child for the first time in his life, and begins to find a new meaning in life.
