You would think that I'm exaggerating the scores or just simply click 10 points for everything by coincidence but no!
This is a really great series. It reminds me of Tru Calling but in Japanese style with lots of jokes. We get to know new people and stories in every episodes. The first episode is a bit boring but don't trust it just give a try to the second one! :D I read more promise you won't be disappointed.
Keiko and Shosuke makes a great pairing in this drama who tries to solve cases because of Keiko's visions. They're joking around everytime. I laughed a lot.
This is an awesome series about crimes, investigations flavored with humour.

Skip to the Overview if this is TL;DR.
This drama very much fits the usual standard for Japanese dramas; a series of events, usually with a pattern, and an underlying storyline.
SPECIAL NOTE: I cried in 3 episodes. In a 10 Episode drama. Usually, the only dramas that get me crying are the epic 25 episode long ones- and even then, they have to have POSITIVELY HEART-SHATTERINGLY SAD ENDINGS. Or no tears read more are shed. In this way, this drama is impressive.

Story- It had a very good idea for the story, but I don't know if I agreed with how it was executed. There were definitely some loose ends I would like tied up, and the ending wasn't satisfactory.

Cast- I thoroughly enjoyed the cast, I think they all did very well. :) The lady that plays Momoko is a very good actress; I'm currently watching her in another drama and she plays the polar opposite character of Momoko, to the extent that I can barely believe it's her.

Music- I actually remember a lot of the music from this one, which is a little bit of a surprise (in a good way). It was really quirky and it always fit with the scene. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and sometimes tense. The intro song is beautiful as well.

I wouldn't watch this drama again any time soon, although I enjoyed it. It simply isn't a drama made for rewatching is all.

Overall, it's a little bit of a frivolous drama, very funny (I legitimately lol'ed several times) and heart touching. Don't watch it if you're looking for romance, a completely sensical and complete storyline, or a particularly unpredictable or serious drama.

    What started as a.."to watch or not to watch" kind of series turned into a cute and funny series that I marathoned through.

    This is totally a must watch for Kitagawa Keiko fans!!

    I also don't understand why everyone is complaining about the ending. It's about the possibilities, yo!

    The name "Mop Girl" is pretty terrible, but its singable to UKISS's Stop Girl. Mop girl in the name of love~

    I wasn't expecting anything, and I was really surprised to enjoy it that much, I agree with most of the comments, and the reviews, which is quite rare and so that's quite cool, because this fiction didn't disappoint me on the contrary.
    If you love series such as "Scrubs" or "Les bleus, premiers pas dans la police", or "Ally Mac Beal" (but only the comedy side for this last one), you'll absolutely love to watch this. Now even if there were lots of gags and jokes here and there, it had some serious moments that were nicely played.
    I also love the fact that it had that "anime manga" feeling but in a good way, mind you. Indeed, I usually dislike it when they try too hard to be animé-esque, but it didn't bother me in here, because they gauge it the right way or the right amount should I say.
    One of my favorite episode would have to be the one with the quirky novelits, they were all so damn hilarious, et une mention spéciale pour le personnage de Karenko, un seul mot: superbe!!!

    funny japanese comedy crime drama.Each episode is a standalone.
    The lead actress does all these over the top expressions. There are some very funny recurring comedy bits.
