[good point]
Horror 's power increased more than previous work
There is some relief against Kageichi Kageuma
The fact that Kikukawa was just scared

[Bad point]
Kyoichi Kageuma 's time to draw trauma is somewhat redundant
There is a disadvantage that the super powers are distributed too easily to people.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
Watch following the previous work. Last time was a strong content of the suspense element to follow the criminal who continued the murder through the dream, this time the girls high school student who was harassed in the interesting half is pushing out the horror part of killing classmates one after the other . It was good that this was quite impressive.
At the same time, Kikuko Kageuma also depicted the way towards the trauma held by the mother, which also looked awesome. I think that it was good to end how little salvation can be felt.
However, there are parts that I felt somewhat more verbose than last time, because I am expressing the process of confronting it quite a lot of time. I was disappointed that I was going well with the temple well.

As a whole I was upgrading more than last time. I think that the way to show the horror part is also good, and I think that the depth has also appeared in depiction of human psychology.

[good point]
There was reality in the behavior of girls studying around Kikukawa.
There is no place like to pretend to be irrelevant if it comes after in amusing & teasing half.

The cold attitude of the parents of Kikukawa is a bit more scary than ghosts and ghosts.

[Bad point]
Because of the nature of the work, there is no choice but there are places where it is difficult to understand by watching with the development that complicates dreams and reality.

The imitation horror director of the ring was impatient and it was impressive this time.

Kageuma-san, are you getting revenue after all?

[Comprehensive evaluation]
Although the previous work had about 30% of suspense elements, this work is subtle to say that the darkness of the hearts of the core people shown at the beginning is more emphasized and the psycho horror is fully opened!
As it seems, but there was no thorough salvation there is no sense of power shortage somewhat.
(On the other hand, since the three people Kageuma, Hashiro, and Kikugawa continue to hold problems after the incident resolution, there is a feeling of indigestion.
A taste may come out if you watch it a couple of times, but I do not know the desire to re-appreciate ... ... "place" like.

Continuation of 'Nightmare Detective'. A story of Kageichi Kageuma (Ryuhei Matsuda) and Mother, Yuko Kageuma (Miwako Ichikawa).
The previous work has a strong color as a psycho suspense, but this work strengthens the color as a horror. It surprises the viewer with the method of the royal road such as the cause of death of girls high school student who recall "ring" and the appearance of ghosts.
There is a school girl high school student who can not sleep everyday in the center of the development, Yuki Zambuki (Yui Miura), but why the mother of Kageuma basically tried to kill Kageuma and why her mother committed suicide It is a work for purifying Kageuma 's mind that unfolds the trauma of Kageuma himself and reaches the limit mentally.
Anyway, there is almost no boundary between Kageuma reality and dream, and the family scenery of the Kageuma family is repeated unclear and abstract. And while the mother 's memory continues to plague the Kageuma, fear of friends with snowprints appearing in their dreams, and requests for their help from their nightmare are intertwined. Until the middle stage this snowboarding is in a position to pull the story as a role like a heroine, but Kageuma does not feel like trying to help her any more, and more than words to blame her more than once To emit. Kaokuma was interested in Kumikawa Kumikawa (Han Han Hye) who was not even presenting his face with even his face as a shamanuma, and at the time when she and her mother's existence were faded, the story became completely Kageuma and Yuko = mother Although it will be converted to the story of Kageuma, I carefully superimpose the feelings of Kageuma as a picture considerably slowly so far. It is becoming effective that this is the climax and his heart sublimates. It's not an image that explains something in detail, but it's easy to understand what makes him feel tears of what he's tearing down.
As a result that endings, Kageuma, as well as snow painting and evening suns, will not result in the nightmarish everyday life, there is a cheerful look there. Like the scenery of the light peeked out from the darkness drawn by Yuko, it is drawn quietly as a hope gently attached.
