That old man is Ikehata, a reporter who once wrote a report on newspaper about Serizawa killing Hideo but Eisaku, using money, forced his company to fire him. He also seeks revenge and asked Naruse not to take the offer to become the Serizawa's legal adviser.
If I remember it correctly.

The paper shows that Hideo's brother (Ryou) was pronounced dead. And that girl in the end, was Ryou's older sister...whose name wasn't written in the family register...

But what is more important is the next episode...is that a tarot card sent to Ryou that I saw in the preview? damn...its getting better and better...
its getting better and better...can't wait for episode 5..its gonna be big.
actually...
Hideo and "the lawyer who calls himself Naruse Ryou" family name is really not "Naruse". I hope somebody can read the death certificate that was shown to Naoto. The real family name is there i think.
about the card, somebody discovered his secret I think...
I'm suspecting it'll start to differ a bit from the original after episode 5. Right until now, everything seems to be parallel to Mawang only faster with slight difference in the leads characterization.

Also a question on the bald man, Ikehata..
Did anybody catch what Naoto's brother mentioned to his secretary (spectacle friend) about Ikehata? Because i remember after that they showed Naruse starring at a newspaper clip at his red room and Ikehata's photo was also there. He must be one of his target too.
Catch with you guys later :)
I'm loving the views on Naruse & Naoto here.

he just changed his name and pronounce the "old" him dead, as not to attract unwanted attention. Knowing that had they knew the brother is still alive, then he would be the suspect since he is the only one in the family left and has the biggest motive to go after naoto. not to mention he is the one who actually went and met up with Eisaku, telling him his intention.

Thanks for that, ganstream ^^
I also agree with ganstream about changing his name for those reasons. Naoto would remember him if he had kept his last name

hmm.. @ganstream2 & icefight:
how does one change one's name without any records? or to be claimed as a deceased? :| There's only one way to do that without detection: Pseudocide
anyhow, I'm just giving my opinion based on the original drama.. ~~BIG SPOILER~~which will eventually connects him to his mysterious blind sister.~END~
However there's a slight chance they might change this but I doubt it. so yes, Ryou changed his name and the drama makers has hidden their real family name for now.

Urgh...can't sleep...

I really like hearing everyone's opinions about whether Naruse is justified in what he's doing, and whether Serizawa is someone to be sympathized with. The show brings up a lot of interesting questions. I hope more people join in.

This tv season has been weak imo, but Maou is my favorite jdrama so far this year.

@happyfingers
I think right now a lot of people will be on Naruse's side because he's only killed "bad" people so far. The people Naruse is targetting, as far as we can tell, haven't felt a lot of remorse for the coverup. The exception is Serizawa. If Serizawa starts going completely mental or Naruse kills him, I'll probably switch to the other side of the fence. In an odd way, I think Serizawa is the only one who should be spared Maou's wrath.

If this were real life, I don't think people would be so quick to support Naruse. But since it's tv (and Ohno muahaha), people are a little more...accepting? lol. In any case, during a time when a lot of people feel let down by the justice system (doesn't matter what country you're from), I think at least a little bit of Naruse and his vigilante justice will resonate with the viewer.
Spoiler to Ep 4:
Who wants to see Soda get the axe next? Woot! That guy's annoying me lol

@aishon2:

there is actually another way: forgery. But since I'm just starting to watch the original version, and the casts did say that they tried to stay true to the original, maybe what you say is true.
What really intrigues me is that, how come Naoto didn't realize that Hideo has a brother. I mean, he must've known about it, yet from episode 4, it is as if, he just realize that.
one more thing
checked out the scene once again (watched it on a streaming site), you're right, his name is not Ryou and his family name is not Naruse. Ryou's name is Manaka Tomoo...though it didn't state why he died.
the plot thickens...and Maou official website has already put up a summary for episode 5...damn...

Its on 2ch. Even comes with a picture of it. Dunno if its true though...

probably because of his popularity with Maou...seeing the rise in rating for episode 4 compared to episode 3.

and they can't prove it until he is tested NOW and we Arashi, especially Ohno fans won't take this without a fight. They're just hell bent on ruining the guy's (and Arashi's) reputation :cussing:
Whatever happens, he is still OUR MAOU.

oh btw Romance, looking "high" like that doesn't mean he IS taking drugs. Alcohol can do that to and he is old enough to drink and have sex.

Hi Minna

I finished watching episode 4 and directly knew about Ohno's drug issues

I've seen the pictures "romance" posted ...they can't seriously judge him depending on these pix...there's no evidence in them that he was high because of drugs ...it might simply be alcohol
and I don't think Ohno would be sooo careless to take drugs in public
as I read in LJ they were saying he was smoking marijuana in a kareoke place in shibuya

and IF he was smoking in public it doesn't really have to be drugs...it might just be normal cigarettes

This is redicioulous I won't believe it until he's tested and proved to be taking drugs!!

I sooooo not want Maou to stop because of such reason!!

Yeah, it was posted on the TV drama board in 2ch.
Episode 5: Ryou received "The Tower" card...which is basically a BAD omen for him. But I guess it connects to the ending in Ma Wang. I hope they don't change the ending in Maou, cuz I like the ending in Ma Wang. It fits the drama well.

yes, i think he already knew but he unfortunately have ignored it.
He was young (15yrs old) so it can be justified that he was traumatised by his own murder to realize the people who are connected to Hideo were also suffering. His ignorance is his undoing and somewhat it made Naruse vengeance SOMEWHAT justifiable because of his blissful unawareness

Manaka Tomoo = Amano Makoto
if Naoto couldn't figure this out soon, i would love to whack his pretty head

ratings for episode 4 = 10.1%

Yay! How cute is Sora-chan? Awwww. The whole show is one big cute festival.
Lol I had to watch that scene again. The first time I was only paying attention to the googly eyes Shiori and Naruse were giving each other when he was reading XD

This is how i thought of the story:
little girl = Naruse ( :lol )
little boy = his brother
tunnel = death

So while Naruse wanted to follow his brother into the afterlife, maybe his immense feelings of guilt prevented him from doing so. I think he feels partly responsible for his brother's death. Why, I'm not sure...

*hugs* omg. you just made him less creepy with that interpretation! *_*
my version would be
little girl=Naoto
little boy=Hideo
tunnel= the TRUTH that he was a murderer who's also responsible for vanishing a man's soul (Naruse's soul)
If only Naoto had the conscience to seek for Hideo's family and ask for forgiveness, Naruse might not be as vengeful as he is now. However Naoto was quite traumatised himself while his father never seemed to be forgiving of his past. Both characters are pretty screwed up.
oh yes Soraaaa ♥.
That little devil was really helpful in bringing Naruse/Shiori closer.. together ♥.
I'm weirded out by the fact that Ohno actually has chemistry with a young girl like Kobayashi. So sparkly.. kind of refreshing. They should pack Naruse/Shiori in botles :P

rant for episode 5
i'm going to whack Serizawa & the police team for being so dumb. baka. dumb. baka. its an easy anagram konoyaro! the writers who's in charge for Serizawa's character should be fired. they made him into an incompetent detective.
I think you should consider that its an anagram when spelled in english.And obviously, they're not english speakers (or spellers, in this case)....

I love this drama so far!! The funny thing was I quite like Ikuta Toma before this from Hana Kimi and I didn't really like Ohno Satoshi cos his not all that good looking.

But watching this dorama...I must say, I hate Serizawa Naoto so much...how the hell did he become a police?? Why is he so short-tempered..yehok, everyone around you is being killed but a police officer should be able to be professional or else they can ever take part in investigations as they are too biased!! Also...all the nervousness around school kids...did he pass the last 10 yrs without seeing a school kid?? It doesn't make sense what he still gets all #_#''''''' whenever he see's school kids, knife, youths...cos there are things people see everyday!! It's really putting me off Ikuta Toma.

I love the drama and the rest of the characters...and strangly enough, I always get attracted to the bad guys, maybe cos they are cleverer..haha!!

its not just about spelling it out. even in ennunciating Amano Makoto = Manaka Tomoo they should have noticed the similarities. Its just simple detective work for goodness sake writers... *grumbles* They don't have any other suspects for the mastermind except for Yamano and they shouldn't disregard the whole Manaka clan existence eventhough they were claimed to be dead. Investigation on Tomoo's death should be done right away. Naruse was kind enough to spell out LIVE=EVIL for incompetent Serizawa. I'm shocked that he couldn't figure it out on spot with that visual assistance. Its no longer about spelling.
end rant.. for now.

Of course it's about spelling though. If I didn't speak English (which they clearly do not) I probably wouldn't have figured it out as quickly as I did. I could understand it if it were an anagram doable by switching the hiragana around, but it's only doable using the alphabet.

And how effective would you be if your best friend had just been murdered? I think if they had him being super amazing brilliant after that, it would have been totally unbelievable.

Of course he's going to screw up a lot. But there's also no way he can just stay out of the case, because it's all about him. :P

And Serizawa's getting affected by schoolkids, knives, etc now, because this case is bringing up those emotions. He said in the previous episode that he'd forgotten what an evil person he was, so it can't have been happening before.

Clearly, I still have muchos raburabu for the Serizawa. ;)

True, they should have figured it out, given thet they're supposed to be detectives with all the hints. But its an anagram not as glaringly obvious as it is to us english speakers...

No, that kid annoys the crap out of me as well. So much so, I'm twisting my fingers until her scene is over, lol.

Children in Japanese (Asian for that matter) dramas, if they're younger than six or seven, I find the way they talk and act so annoying. Not to mention the way the adults talk and act around them, which is even more annoying.

i bout WINK UP a month or two ago and it had an interview with touma (wink up features him every month) and the latest one was about MAOU so i was really looking foreward to watching it, but i watched the beginning of the first episode and even though the acting was good, it didnt really interest me. i was a little diissapointed.

I've not seen the fifth yet. But even though I first was wary about the series, now I really like it! ^_^ Fourth episode really was great! Made me also cry D: I think it's veeery good series and since Toma is in it... it makes it twice better XD And I've not been Ohno fan before, but I think he acts sooo well in Maou :3 Absolutely awesome ^-^

What? I can't believe you guys don't like Sora-chan :lol

Haha I think she is a better actor than the guys playing young Serizawa and Naruse tho

spoilers ep 5 (woops sorry, i had it as ep 4 before, hope i didn't spoil anyone :unsure: )
I really think Naruse should be a suspect based on the fact he's always got that evil smirk on his face. The ratio of evil smiles to good smiles has to be 1:1.

Even though the anagram thing was pretty ridiculous, I thought Serizawa redeemed himself in the episode. I'm also starting to see chemistry b/w him and Shiori.

Best part: When Naruse answered Shiori's phone. You can just imagine what Serizawa was thinking ("Dammit, did he corrupt my innocent Shiori-san?! Nooooo!!!")

Also, I like Shiori-san's explanation of the children's story, more hopeful than mine :P

i thought she was amazing too! i was a bit annoyed by her at first (i don't know why) but the crying tugged my heart strings. girl got talent :)
Serizawa did redeemed himself after that heartfelt confession to his father. Nice job Toma :thumleft: . My favourite parts would be anything with Naruse showing some cracks in his control and whenever he's with Shiori♥
oh no.. the ratings going to suffer again because of Olympics opening. maybe they should air it a bit late like they did last week.

a little bit off topic.. Have you guys seen [truth] PV? NARUSE SINGING! ♥

Yeah, I was thinking that the Olympics opening ceremony was going to mess with the ratings.

The Truth PV is awesome. All the red and black and the violins.

I missed it last night cuz 3 of my friends are on my country's Olympic team and I wanted to watch them!

I think the ratings are going to suffer quite badly - everyone I know here fell asleep watching the Olympics. :P

But the Japan team was out quite early, so maybe they changed the channel after that. Here's being too hopeful!
