Kuroki was once an ace detective, but after being traumatized from a case, he became unable to work and was transferred to another division, where he idles his time away. One day, a particular case pulls him out of his rut and gives him a chance to return as a detective. Two staff members of the popular "Aibou" series, producer Motohiro Matsumoto and writer Ryota Kosawa, are working together on this series. -- Tokyograph

I am frequently disappointed with detective dramas, they are often boring or badly cast and sometimes both. This one kept me wanting to see more and more, which was a great change after dropping many series after a few episodes.

This one isn't focused on clever clues. It's more like a puzzle where some pieces are misleading whilst others are misinterpreted.

I have seen other things with Uchino Masaaki and I always found his acting to be superb. This one was no different, he pulled different sides of his character off really well. He was funny when he meant to be, and serious when he needed to be and it was really entertaining learning more about him and how he became who he is.

The story had great twists, which is essential for this genre. It wasn't overly focused on just one thing either, there is enough attention paid for some side characters too.

Overall, I think it's a good show. Definitely worth a lot more attention than it gets so if you like crime dramas with a hint of comedy, a good amount of character development and unexpected twists, go and give this a try!
