Masaka Kubota plays high-school student Keita, who leads a secret life as a "network investigator" for a secret organization. In the introductory episode, Keita has moved to a new school in Tokyo but doesn't like it. His best friend from his previous school comes to Tokyo and they run away together. Passing through a construction site the pair are attacked by a robot, but are then saved by a man named Takimoto and his strange sidekick — a cell phone with arms and legs.
"Ketai Sosakan 7" is overseen by film director Takashi Miike.

I'm a freak when it comes to Japanese hi-tech dramas. I was a little let down in the first episode. I don't know why. I thought this show would be soooooooooooo stupid. A cellphone buddy? What-ev-ah.

Okay, I busted through it. Again, after watching it, the Japanese have set the standard on morals and family values. Who would have thought that THIS show would pull that off? The last few episodes...well, yeah, makes you think about robotics and man.

I won't lie. The story lost momentum in the middle. Some of the episodes weren't really necessary or just plain stupid. But once they got back to the storyline and really rallied the value of humanity and friendship, it was bliss.

Again, I won't lie....there just wasn't enough Matsuda Satoshi. The man is a freakin' hottie! Watch Vampire Host. Holy Enchilada!!! Every episode just about wet my panties. LOL! Anyway....where was I? Oh yeah. LOL! I thought he was going to be a main character but was more or less, here and there. His stories were about lost. Only a hand full of him in the episodes and there are 46 of them. Errrrgh!

In all, this drama was a great boredom buster. Very thought provoking but yet again it's not like we haven't seen movies and dramas that depict the inevitability of human nature verse robots. Need I say more. We can't live without our handy cellphone but then aren't we just a tad bit too dependant on anything that requires to live at the push of a button.......
