Bilingual Japanese/English (subtitled) miniseries on Netflix. First episode looks at a Japanese police detective with a Yakuza'd-up brother who is suspected in a gangland murder with connections in the UK. The first episode introduces the lead detective's strong willed wife, mother and father, and either psychotic or badass teen daughter; and the mob connections of the detective's allegedly deceased brother and boss; and detective's connections in London (where he's sent to find clues) including a Scottish single mom detective and a half Japanese rent boy. All the characters are well developed. Definitely worth watching at this point-- other than the mobbed up ones (at least up to this point), all the characters are well developed and interesting.
