Kuroi Maya is a female detective who has no sense of loyalty to her organisation, completely ignores rules and loves to see troubled looks on people's faces. She became a detective so that she can torment bad people all she wants. However, she has the ability to get to criminals faster than anyone else because of her keen perceptiveness. Good-natured, earnest but careless Daikanyama Shusuke, is a police officer who works at a police box. At home, he is caught between his strong-minded mother and sister, and gets pushed around every day. But he makes the acquaintance of Maya at a crime scene. Shusuke is unlucky to find himself partnered with her to solve all sorts of cases together.
Cast & Credits
My like for detective dramas stems mostly from the characters' personalities. With so many detective dramas, many cases get repetitive so for me the highlight of these dramas is the team of detectives/policemen etc. I watched doS Deka right after Deka Wanko for Tabe Mikako and at first I just wasn't feeling it. It had its moments where I laughed but other than Maya I found her team to be bland like stale bread plus Okura's acting was corny. I was on the verge of dropping it at first but eventually I stuck around until the end and I'm glad I did. I enjoyed Maya's character like her antics with the superglue stuff and "Fighto" and I especially liked how they developed the relationship between Maya and her chief when Maya started to rub off on her.
All in all, other than Maya this team was more forgettable than some other similar dramas, although I did warm up to them in the end, especially in the last episode; at least none of them were some douchebags that I wanted to punch which is always a plus. I just wished they were more fleshed out. Usually these types of characters each have an episode where they get to shine but not in this one.
The acting was so-so. I like Tabe Mikako and I think she suits these types of quirky roles but some of the other cast's acting was questionable. I never watched Okura in anything before so I don't know if he's acted like that on purpose for his character or if it's standard for him. The others didn't really stand out. The heavy metal-ish music was a good touch (at least for me)
For bad parts of this drama i can maybe say the fighting scenes (especially in the last episode fight) are a bit lower quality.
Recommend this show to everyone, it will make you laugh for sure while also pointing out serious questions about serious problems which are relevant for the society.
