We Japanese have lately watched a lot of television dramas based on popular comic books and novels. Some lament for decrease of scriptwriters and directors while others take an optimistic view of increase of fine manga and novels. Whatever, we have seldom seen tales or comics from TV dramas, by contrast. How much more must the novel which mentions about past of the drama and gets praised by the fans of the original plays!

Published by Kodansha Ltd.
Price: 1,050 yen (Tax in.)
Now, here is the rare case. TRICK –Kaeri-sore Jo no Nazo– ( 帰天城の謎 ), meaning the mystery in Kaeri-sora castle, is the infrequent novel which describes youth days of the main roles on TRICK; a popular televised drama series in Japan.

Firstly, we are introducing an outline of TRICK. Yamada Naoko, starred by Nakama Yukie, is an unsuccessful flat-chested magician who is always hungry. She met a bulky assistant professor of physics; Ueda Jiro starred by Abe Hiroshi, by the merest accident. Jiro always blows his own horn but goes into fits when he sees some supernatural phenomenon. One after another, the two reluctantly get to fight against bad groups which use tricks and cheat people, with using their brains and many other things.

At the beginning place of the series, they are already adults. So TRICK is a drama of two grown-up persons. However, Hayamine Kaoru has described junior high school days of Yamada Naoko on TRICK –Kaeri-sore Jo no Nazo–. How common point was there between the bumpy pair on earth?

Paying tributes to the original drama enough and seasoned with taste of Hayamine Kaoru, the novel suggests new potential of the world depicted in former TRICK series. TRICK all along won popularity because of its unique taste and this story is an exquisite heir to the color.

Needless to say, you can enjoy its mystery.
