Now the basis of a live-action movie, the razor-sharp series continues to delight, featuring more than its usual share of female characters in this much-awaited, brand-new installment.
Meet a well-adjusted expatriate who was the first Japanese demi-human to be discovered; elite bureaucrat Tosaki's ailing love interest, his moral anchor and hazard; and Ritsu Nagai, our calculating hero's no-nonsense mom. As a bonus, get to know Sam "Sato" Owen's mother's side of the family (they offer excellent business opportunities).
