Languages Japanese//In One Missed Call 2, the dreaded cell phone curse returns to wreak havoc on the lives of a young teacher named Kyoko (one-name only TV star Mimura) and her loyal boyfriend Naoto (Yu Yoshizawa). While enjoying a night out with friends at a Chinese restaurant, Kyoko receives an eerie call, but strangely, instead of dying three days later, tragedy strikes almost immediately and not to Kyoko directly. Since one of the deaths in the original film occurred on television, both Kyoko and Naoto are familiar with the urban legend and find themselves at a loss on how to solve the problem. Luckily for them, a plucky journalist named Takako (Asaka Seto) is on the case, enlisting the help of Detective Motomiya (a returning Renji Ishibashi) who's pieced together quite a bit about how the curse works.
Refreshingly, Motomiya isn't the clichéd authority figure who immediately dismisses the supernatural in favor of a scientific explanation (an act of arrogance that serves as the veritable kiss of death in horror movies). No, Motomiya knows full well that the curse is real and applies his detective skills to the realm of the supernatural, saving not only characters, but the viewers some valuable time in "cutting to the chase." Their investigation leads Takao to Taiwan to visit her estranged husband (Peter Ho). It turns out that he's been researching the curse, too, and it's spreading throughout Asia like a virus. Thinking they've got the mystery solved, the heroes band together to undo the curse, but will they be successful?
