So I just got done watching a pretty decent mystery drama today on WOWOW called 伝説の監察医 オニグマの事件簿2 (Densetsu no Kaisatui ONIGUMA no Jikenbo 2). It was super enticing, had a lot of great plot-twists (that my Agatha Christie junkie sister probably could've spotted way earlier than me), and a few of the actors were overall really good at their jobs, I thought. I don't want to spoil anything, but if you're interested in some entertaining detective suspense, I recommend giving it a shot.

But here's where you're like, "Danielle, getoutta of tooown! This show is being aired right now in Japan! If it's not on my Netflix or Youtube (or ahemPiratebayahem), then how am I supposed to find it on the vast world wide web?!!"

Let me introduce you to the keywords for your Google search engines:
動画まとめ douga matome

Simply insert the name of the "in-Japan-only" show you wanna watch, in this case:
"伝説の監察医 オニグマの事件簿2"
Then add:
"動画まとめ"
=
"伝説の監察医 オニグマの事件簿2 動画まとめ"
("Densetsu no Kaisatui ONIGUMA no Jikenbo 2" + "douga matome")

If you're not comfortable with typing it out, remember; copy/paste is your friend. Do not be ashamed to use the copy/paste.

Here, I'll just take a few quick screenshots to help you get started. I start off on Google. Which has an awesome Winter Paralympics animation going on right now, btw.

And here's where the monotony begins. Just like those familiar with googling something like, "Bojack Horseman Season 1 watch online", you'll probably know and love this tedious step of going through website after website (hopefully with Deep Freeze on your computer to avoid viruses and other internet nasties) until you find a mirror that works. The internet is vast. Tread carefully.

This time, I got extremely lucky and found a vid on my second try:

And fellow Japanese study-ers, break out that dictionary, flashcards, notebooks, and whatever else you use to build vocabulary, because yes, it's movie time!

In general, I have a lot of luck using this website: http://youtubeowaraitv.blog32.fc2.com/

It's mainly sorted by date when the TV show was aired, which I'm sure is great if you use a schedule (I don't), but if not, there's also a handy-dandy search engine for you to use, too.

I hope this helps, you fellow drama watchers, you! Happy and safe googling out there!
