The body of a young lady, who had been fatally stabbed in a back alley of Yokohama's shopping and entertainment district, is discovered. Four detectives from the Fourth Section of Minato-cho Police Precinct's Criminal Affairs Division " Togashi Masayoshi, Iinuma Reiko, Shibata Yasuharu and Yamashita Manabu " quickly rush to the scene. Togashi finds something in the pocket of the dead body and nonchalantly hides it in his own suit. He presumes read moreReiko and the others will turn a blind eye even though they have noticed it.

Detectives from the prefectural police's First Investigative Division arrive shortly after that. The members of the Fourth Section, who have been deprived of their right to investigate by the First Investigative Division, dejectedly walk away from the scene. However, they secretly begin their own investigation.

Three days later, Satonaka Keiichiro, the Fourth Section's new chief, arrives. Satonaka himself believes he has been demoted to the precinct because of he denounced the unfair appointment of the prefectural police chief's nephew. However, the objective of Maejima Ryuzo, the head of police administration who sent him into Minato-cho Police Precinct, is to let Satonaka keep tabs on Togashi and the Fourth Section. Maejima warns Satonaka that there is a "bad rumor" about the Fourth Section.

Togashi and the others are seen as misusing their high arrest rate and frequently disobeying the orders of the prefectural police. In fact, they are even suspected of all kinds of illegal activities which include extorting confessions under duress, having cosy ties with crime syndicates and accepting bribes. Tokunaga Yasushi, the former section head who was investigating the facts, had lost his footing on the rooftop of a building while pursuing a robber and had fallen to his death... Was Tokunaga's death really an accident?!

Satonaka regards his new subordinates with caution but the four of them are unexpectedly affable and excellent detectives, especially Togashi who is a stimulating and gallant man. They give Satonaka a thorough report on the investigation into the murder which occurred three days ago, and say that they are searching for eyewitnesses in line with the prefectural police's position that it was a "random attack". He feels relieved to see their serious manner. However, several days later, Satonaka discovers that their entire report was nonsense...!

I think this drama is simply great. it posed moral questions to the viewer, itt made you think more and more, you wanted to be part of solving the mysteries, you see the relationships in a working space of a group of people who you'd think they'd not get along well. generally the acting was great, definitely convincing different styles. the inspirational part of this drama made you think deeply with every read more episode. I think that if you are someone who likes to think when watching something then this drama wll definitely be appreciated.

This drama is one of those that I put on my to watch list, just because, and I was thoroughly surprised. Don't watch this drama, if you don't like investigative/cop drama's. One of the things that I liked about this drama, the actors were convincing, the actors played their characters very well. The story is sort of typical in your good guy/bad guy set up, but there are a lot of twists read more and turns. Another thing about this drama, that had me intrigued was the questions it posed "What is justice?" "How far is to far" "What would you do?". And finally: There are no pretty boys & idols.

    This is really really good. One of the few quality crime dramas around. After finding gems like Strawberry Night another great find added to the list.
