Better than i expected (yeah... i wasnt expecting much on this one...)
Nways.. its waaaay to predictable... And it could be like 2 episodes shorter (maaaaany scenes r tottaly unnecessary...)
"bout the casting... the only actor ive see in another doramas before was Abe Hiroshi and hes amazing (no matter what role hes playing) and Kashiwabara Shuji (from Ace wo Nerae). Both of them r good in this dorama... but Ito Hideaki steals the spotlight!! He has some amazing acting skills.... *thumbs up for him*
Well... maybe if i liked a lil bit more those suspense dorama i would have enjoyed it a lil more...!!! But imo Yasha is just OK....

This is a beautiful and touching black science fiction drama, one of the best i've seen of this genre. it has an amazing cutting edge plot and quick paced suspense action driven by intense acting from the drama's cast with superb tight direction. Hideaki Ito's chilling portrayal of the twins was so compelling.Love made all the difference in their upbringing although they were genetically the same. Sting's song Desert Rose featuring Cheb Mami gave the drama an added surreal appeal. This is in my must see list.

Surprisingly touching for a SF-drama! Very good performances and good action scences. I give this only an eight for three reasons:
- firstly the two first episodes were too slow and rather weird/boring instead of intriguing, I almost gave up. Thanks god I didnLt!
- Then the title song since I really hate Sting but thatLs a very personal view, sorry.
- And lastly because on one hand it had too many repetitive flashbacks and on the other hand I was left with many open questions.

This drama is pretty addicting despite the weak handling of the plot. Perhaps Ito Hideaki was just so good here. The sci-fi element is probably just an excuse to move the relationship between the twins. I guess this is more a character-driven show if anything. But I seriously couldn't stop watching, as the series kept me wanting to know what would happen between the two. Yasha is deeply entertaining and the concept is interesting. I only wish there were more action scenes around.

I don't see why the viewership can be so low.
It's not the BEST EVER but it's definitely good to watch.
It's different from other kinds of dramas and the characters are very well played, such as Ito playing two characters, Kashiwabara playing the blind pianist... and otsuka playing the confused mother...
I highly recommend it... it's suspenseful and original.

I really liked the storyline of this drama; it wasnt like the shows I usually watch. It was exciting because it was so unpredictable and I had no clue how it would end. It got a bit slow at one point near the end, but it picked up right after that. Ito Hideaki did an amazing job as the twins, and I would often forget that he was the same person.

I absolutely loved this drama! Ito Hideaki's acting contrasted the two roles magnificently. The plot was fresh - at least from most other dramas - and it's a fresh breath of fresh air from the romance dramas I've been watching. As for the ending, it gained a perfect sense of closure. ^^ All in all, I'd recommend this to everyone!

Good sci-fi drama. Plot is not one of my favourites and I didn't expect much of it; I found it a bit slow and surreal, but the story was good and the cast too. I loved Hiroshi Abe's character, so dark and enigmatic, far away from his comic roles, he just fits everywhere. Different story and different atmosphere; give it a try.

I haven't watched this, but want to point out that this is another manga-based story. Yasha was scanlated for a time by MangaProject and Shoujomagic, you can still get those chapters on IRC in their channels. Project info:http://shoujomagic.org/update/projects.php?PNUM=46

Very, very interesting storyline and an impressive display of versatility by Ito Hideaki in dual roles. Kashiwabara Shuji is also very convincing as a blind Moichi. The main drawback is repetitive flashback scenes which make the drama unnecessarily draggy at times.

Wow... very interesting sci-fi drama.. eps the theme song desert rose which really suit this drama. Ito also did a good job in protraying 2 different personalities in this drama. His acting is good and wish to see more of his dramas with challenging roles as this.

One more thing...
They say that Rin is evil and cruel, but after seeing the whole film, I don't think so. 'cause "everything has its reason", because Rin is Sei's little brother, and they really love each other.
Oh my God, I love the ending!!

Yasha is a great mystery thriller - definitely worth your time. It has it all: friendship, loyalty, the virus, love& hate, siblings, the music: all these things are worked out well.

Ito Hideaki gives a very convincing performance as two twins with polar personalities. Interesting storyline, but letdown by the presence of some repetitive scenes of flashbacks.
|17. ||Comments by supaflysista21 [Rating: 10/10]|
Ito did a fine job playing the roles of Sie and Rin. You would think that there are two different people playing those roles, when in fact, it's the same person. Amazing! A++++

It's a great drama, that everybody have to watch. It's dark, full of love, loyality, hate, virus and secrets. And the music + the opening is great too.

Not too bad storyline... Ito Hideaki did well as both twins... a story about an experiment that went wrong and the repercussion that follows...

Unlike any JDorama I have ever seen. I am now a Ito Hideaki fan. Great actor. I really liked the ending.

Great action drama. A bit like 24 or Alias. There's some weird gay moments, but a must see anyway.
