Toyama Kinshiro is a 36-year-old newly-appointed police chief at Kitamachi Police Station who firmly believes his mission as a policeman is to listen to every voice of innocent citizens and protect the peace in the community. He comes off as aloof and a bit quirky at first, but in fact he has brilliant investigative instincts and spots clues that no one else can detect. Unlike his elite career bureaucrat colleagues, Kinshiro doesn't read moredress or act like a stereotypical Chief Police. Rather than sitting behind a desk, Kinshiro leaves the office and literally goes around town to do the investigation work, and go the extra mile to solve any crime regardless how small or trivial. However, his unorthodox approach generates a lot of antagonism from his subordinates at Kitamachi Police Station.

Recommended by blueribbon
The protagonists of both dramas have somewhat of the same feeling. The drama has to do with crime and investigating. Both protagonists goes out into the field, even though they are not meant to be. For both protagonists, there is a "sidekick", a female character that helps them and is "used" to help solve the cases they are doing. The Female characters dislike the protagonist at first but ends up warming up to them near the end. The dramas both have somewhat of the same plot. If you like one, I recommend watching the other as well.

    I love detective dramas and even more if you add comedy into the mix but not even Hiroshi could save this one for me.

    I'n quite enjoying this drama... simple, brain-free tv-show with a touch of mystery and cuteness.
    And for some reason, police badges in this show have the power to knock out the culprits out of their feets each time the MC shows his.

    ive seen him 3rd time but this drama really catch my heart. didnt care much bout chiaki but tamaki in here make me fall for him. d badge scene is a bit corny but kakkoii. its light case,fill with comedy in d right time. he really hve pure hearts, one we need in real life.

    a solid 8/10 . very enjoyable. it has a feel of an anime specially the character played by Masahiro lol. he sound and act like an anime that came to life haha. only thing i wished for is that i hope they made Hiroshi's character a little tougher (literally). Miori turns out to be better in close combat scene than him lol. I love the growth of the police team here, i hope they will return for a second season because its ending feels like just the beginning of their real adventure as a team :)

    There is really nothing special about this drama. It's predictable, it's repetitive, and mostly it's very cheesy. I would've rated it less, but there's something about the main character that made me give it an extra point, and that is his genuine kindness. There was a moment he really got to me and I got invested in the character, but yea he kept spewing cheesiness lol. Still entertaining while it lasts but ultimately forgettable.

    The end of episode cliche scenario badge flashing is already annoying by ep 2, rest of the stuff is entertaining somewhat oldschool

      I find it quite bad-ass. Every time he flashes the badge is like him saying "BANKAI!"

      Same here. It is like "OK MOFO"S this badge is KNOCKING you OUT!!" by all its' fearless justice. THIS is how everyone I know wants to see the police everywhere.
