Amagi Yu is a slightly eccentric detective who has been assigned to the Twelfth Section of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department’s First Investigative Division from the Lost and Found Centre. The Twelfth Section is called the “graveyard of detectives” and ridiculed as the “banishment room where hardened detectives who cannot be fired are sent”. Its assembled detectives Samura Kosuke, Yamashita Takumi, Nagasawa Keita, Mizutani Tamaki and Katagiri Masatoshi are elite and yet oddballs. Amagi appears fixated with time which seems to have no relation with a case. Raising questions about the timelines of the perpetrator and victim derived from the estimated time of death, time of crime, time of alibi and time limit, he searches for the meaning of “blank time” which arises from this. He obsesses over the weight of every minute and second of time because of some incident.
Cast & Credits
This show fits so well into the "typical" detective, crime, mystery drama genre that it is absolutely a typical detective genre; however, it is absolutely a completely different kind of detective, crime, mystery drama. These detectives work like actual detectives but with the quirks and realities of life and private life issues and personal issues of "actors". These actors/actresses acted as detectives, but they played honest to God real people; with issues, personal problems, sad histories, etc...
I'm glad this show has 4 seasons because it is extremely interesting and genuine to real life issues and problems, crimes and mysteries, too. I absolutely recommend this show because you will not be disappointed!
