Ooh, no reviews.

Story 8/10 - Spies! Kids! Spy kids! Yeah, the story is a good break from watching melodramas or rom coms. Don't be too disappointed if the cases aren't that hard to figure out since the detective team is made up of young kids but its fun. I felt like a mini Sherlock whenever I watched this drama ^^. I know the drama is supposed to have serious moments, but read more this is one where you should have fun with it and not be too concerned with the main storyline. If you immerse yourself in each episode and become a detective with the kids, time flies

Acting/Cast 8/10 - Shida Mirai! ^^ The entire cast is really young in this, so their acting isn't as developed as older actors/actresses. But Shida Mirai is extremely cute in drama, adding her own style of quirkyness in each episode and shining when there are serious moments.

Music 6/10 - Jdrama OST's never really hit me, but the suspenseful music during murders help set the mood.

Rewatch 5/10 - Once was good enough. If you're able to solve all the cases without being shown the culprit, good job! You're on your way to becoming Sherlock Holmes~

Overall 8/10 - A fun and quirky drama mixed in with serious and mysterious cases. Watch an episode or two whenever you wish to take a breather from those serious melodramas and kick back while you watch 5 kids run around and solve mysteries

Story - I'm giving the story a perfect score since I am biased to dramas with a mystery, suspense and like a "detective" genre. It's so awesome that there's such a person who could write a great story for each episode.

Acting/Cast - I really don't know why I'm giving it a score of 9. I don't know what's the negative one for. HAHAHA. =))) You'll be able to see some of read more the great actors in the future such as Yamada, Kamiki, and Shida.

Music- Hmmm. I always skip the music. Sorry! But I downloaded it to my mobile and I guess it sounded great.

Rewatch Value- If it's possible to watch this a million of times I WOULD.

OVERALL- What a masterpiece. I may be exaggerating a little bit, but it's really great. It's worth watching.

There is the same concept of a student following the aspect of being a detective. Yamada Ryosuke is also one of the supporting student detectives, and there is a similar amount of suspense.

    they should make a season 2 like a grown up version of the kids, since all of them are still acting! ;)

    The actor who plays Tominaga in episodes 4 and 5 did a superb job towards the end of ep.5 with his acting =]

    Wow, this is seriously weird! Did anyone else notice? Yamada Ryosuke [Ryuu] was born 09.05.1993, Shida Mirai [Megu] 10.05.1993, Kamiki Ryunosuke [Kyuu] 19.05.1993. Isn't that a bit too much of a coincidence? It's like they picked actors based on their birthdays... (o____0)

      I've noticed that almost all 1993 actors are born in May. Which really freaks me out because I was born May 1st 1993! It's like 1993 was the year for May births because I didn't know anyone else born in May until I started JDramas!
