Toyama Kinshiro is a 30-year-old newly-appointed police chief at Kitamachi Police Station who firmly believes his mission as a policeman is to listen to every voice of innocent citizens and protect the peace in the community. He comes off as aloof and a bit quirky at first, but in fact he has brilliant investigative instincts and spots clues that no one else can detect. Unlike his elite career bureaucrat colleagues, Kinshiro doesn't dress or act like a stereotypical Chief Police. Rather than sitting behind a desk, Kinshiro leaves the office and literally goes around town to do the investigation work, and go the extra mile to solve any crime regardless how small or trivial. However, his unorthodox approach generates a lot of antagonism from his subordinates at Kitamachi Police Station. Edit Translation

I watched this show on a whim and was extremely surprised! The cast was new to me, besides 3 or 4 people and the rest was a delightful surprise; after some research, I found actors that I really love were guests in this drama and I found some new actors to follow, as well! The story build up was a little slow, but it all flowed together pretty well; the usual cases of a police officer meshed together with the high climax episodes to fill in a wonderful script. This show had me glued to my laptop for an entire day! Each character played out well and every episode fit the completed story well. I didn't expect to like the drama as much as I did, to be honest, the summary sort of lacked a bit of draw in for me so I ended up watching this on a whim because I recognized one actor... But I am so glad I did!

Good mix of seriousness and comedy.

I'm a fan of Tamaki Hiroshi, so I started watching because of him but stayed till the end because of the story.

I like that the cases shown are more realistic in a sense that it involves things that happen in real life like scammers, stalkers, bullies, domestic violence, vandalising, and it shows how the police struggles with numerous cases with the lack of manpower, figuring out which case to prioritise while facing unreasonable demands from upper management.

Tamaki Hiroshi's character is like a Japanese Captain America, someone righteous and have a high sense of justice who is willing to go out of his way to help others even if it means getting on the nerves of the seniors and management, and even sacrificing himself. He wants to change the police force from within as he sees hierarchy and bureaucracy gets in the way of solving crimes.

Overall, it is an enjoyable crime drama for me. Not too serious and not too comedic. Perfectly balanced.
