PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THIS RECOMMENDATION IF YOU ARE OF A NERVOUS DISPOSITION.

This is the title of an excellent, 6 part BBC Yakuza/cop drama series set in London and Japan and it’s available on Netflix. However, it’s also a little different to the usual yakuza/cop drama, interspersed with manga-like vignettes and other delightfully unusual ways. It’s also superbly acted. Of course it’s violent, gory (you have been warned) but amusing, too. Do look out for it!

Interestingly the actress in Giri/Haji, Anna Sawai, plays Toda Marikomin the new version of Shogun!

Looks good. If I'm not mistaken, the female lead was the voice of Merida in the Disney cartoon, Brave.

Really? She was also in Braveheart!
