They might have stayed true to ASR's character, but they have completely decimated Kushi's character. She is a poor caricature of her former self! To stay true to one character at the expense of another does make not one a great story teller!
I agree that redemption can happen in many ways - but it always begins with the realization and RESPONSIBILITY of one's mistake. (ASR has admitted he is responsible.) With responsibility comes atonement. The atonement CANNOT happen without remorse and the verbal absolution of the parties concerned. This has not happened here - yet. But we can still hope. As you say, IPKKND claims itself to be of a different nature than the normal drama. I fail to understand, though, how staying true to one character and not another makes a good drama. And shouting from the roftops, no matter how loud is not going to change the truth. Well, I'm purely enjoying it from a SaRun angle now. If they're on, well and good, otherwise, everything else is quite irrelevant. It's just eye candy for me now.
