director Takashi Miike turned his aim on Japanese TV with a unparalleled
vengeance as he brought Eiji Ohtsuka's notorious blood-soaked novel to
the small screen. Here are the first two episodes on one DVD.
officer Yosuke (Naoki Hosaka), slips into alternate personalities after
he discovers that his wife has been brutally murdered. As a tough 'Dirty
Harry" type detective (named Kazuhiko) he hunts down his wife's killer
and takes revenge. Afterwards, he reverts back to "Yosuke" with
no memory of what happened. But then (in episode two) when a similar series
of disturbing murders take place, he once again assumes the role of MPD
Psycho [Multiple Personality Detective Psycho].
