This series revolves around a group of peculiar detectives in a new division created to fight against an increase in atrocious crimes. Osawa Eriko is a beautiful career woman who has just returned from training in the U.S. and is appointed as the "boss" of this division. But despite her intelligence and capabilities, she can never understand a man's heart, so she remains unable to find a husband. In fact, her assignment read morein the U.S. was really a demotion after she ruined her career track over a man. So why was she chosen as the boss of the new division? Even though the detectives are talented, they all have some kind of issue or flaw, and they are considered to be the "problem children" of the police force. In the end, the division's true purpose is just to isolate these problematic detectives.

The acting was VERY GOOD. I just really want to emphasize that. Excellent plot. I've seen it before on gooddrama.net while looking for more detective series to watch, but the series cover picture and the name, just didn't click to me. But then, I found out that Junpei Mizobata is one of the cast. And that did it! Haha.

If you're looking for a detective tv drama, this is it people. Another read more thing that I actually like about it is it's funny, makes you laugh hard every now and then.

Great character development.

All said, I'm looking forward on watching the second season. It better be greater or equal to this!

Another stellar Jdrama series I finally notched off... This detective, mystery series is cast with a rock solid actors who weave an intricate storyline of corruption, greed and murder in the police force. The story is about another outlier, intelligent, and aggressive female tasked with the impossible inside the all boys club of the police force. This series is a much see for any who love a mystery, detective, strong-female lead and read more some laughs along the way. The Jdrama machine is cranking out stellar mystery-detective material to give the Brits a real challenge.

    I'm so surprised that this one actually throws me for a loop. I feel like there's always something predictable in drama's (and I'm always making predictions) but this one is anything but what you'd expect, and in a good way. I prefer the investigators chemistry in Strawberry Night more, but the story here is amazing.

    Who the hell tagged this as comedy? Just because it has a few comic relief moments doesn't mean this dorama is a comedy :P

      I'm not sure about that. Either you're not into detective series or you're doing something else while watching BOSS. Lol. Peace!
