Kanbe Miwako (Fukada Kyoko) is a detective who wears expensive clothes and is chauffeured to work every day. She is the granddaughter of the super-rich Kanbe Kikuemon, who earned his vast fortune through dirty means when he was young and now wants to repent by spending it all on his only granddaughter and her work. With a characteristic 「あのー、ちょっとよろしいでしょうか」"Excuse me, may I speak?..", she comes up with unusually clever as well as unusually expensive means to lure out the criminals, annoying her coworkers to no end, but always getting her man. This second series is similar to the first except that the police have a grander conference room and the Kanbe clan has even more wealth and luxury. -Dramawiki Add Synopsis In Portuguese
Cast & Credits
It seemed like the people behind this show caught a lucky break getting a second season and didn't quite know what to do. They just added on more fluff to what was already fluffed enough. In the first season, the meals Miwako and her Grandfather would have together were humorous because of how ridiculous they were in extravagance and formality for just two people. This season, it was overkill and made you only hope someone was enjoying all that food and it wasn't going to waste.
What you might have liked most about the first season was Miwako's contradicting cleverness and stupidity. I feel like this is what could have evolved the most, but it was the same ol' dried out routine. Nothing new, nothing even kicked up a notch. Biggest disappointment. I kept waiting for it each episode I watched, and it never showed up. The cases don't get better, either. We already know she's going to suggest solving everything in an overblown fashion with her money, but that becomes the focal point of the episode and takes away from any really difficulty in figuring out things. All the answers come so easy. I know who the culprit is already in the first quarter of the episode. In the first season, at least she actually was solving cases that required some real deciphering of clues.
The worst part was that the last two episode were exactly the same scenario as episodes from the first season, just swapped out characters and changed the situations a little. I kept saying to the screen, "You gotta be kidding me!!!!" Now, that's just sheer laziness and/or lack of creativity. We've run out of ideas, so let's use the same ones we've used already. Like no one would notice with how blatant it was. I havie a saying that applies here, "You must really think me a fool to make your lies so transparent."
If you're in this just to see all the luxury and how much junk Miwako can fit on her nails, then give it your 10 hours. If not, I say don't waste your time.
