Wielding a unique perspective and psychology, Tsukumo tackles the nation's most baffling crimes and scandals, going head-to-head with the most brilliant and twisted criminal minds.

I saw this drama because I was looking for a new drama to watch. I had a list already of things i needed to watch but i wanted to see something different. So, i picked this and I was amused all the way with this drama. There was comedy, sense, and a lot of really good actors. I saw gackt! I didn't know he was in this drama and it was pretty read more funny who he was asked to play.

If, you want a really amazing drama to watch then this is something you MUST see.

'Wow' is all I can say to this drama! I adore it! Kimura Takuya is amazing in this and he never fails to intreague me with his wonderful acting style! with an all star cast plus guest stars including Gackt plus a clever script and story, what more could you want! oh and plus, Van Halen's 'Jump' is the theme tune to it! it can't get any more epic than this, accept read more if they would to make another series! So, will there be a Mr Brain 2 in 2012? there better be!

These two crime dramas both are centred around a genius and somewhat quirky scientist/doctor, who leads a team working together to solve murder cases through science and medical based investigations.

A funny weird guy who solves cases. Mr. Brain is better than Smoking Gun but if you enjoyed any of the two, you'll like the other one as well.

    A little underwhelmed.... thought it would be amazing, but it was honestly very normal to me, except Kimura's character is super fun. Otherwise.... the solving of cases were average, but there were a couple of case stories that I liked in the middle. But the last case was kind of unbearable... Maybe I was just zoning out too much.

    But I have hope for there being a season 2 since some dramas in Japan get a sequel even though it's years later ^^
