Yabukihara Joe starts working as a masseur with the encouragement of Eko-baba, the owner of a massage shop whom he happened to become acquainted with about one year ago. Recognising that he is gifted in massage, Eko-baba makes Joe go to the homes of all kinds of customers although it agonises him because he dislikes people and has anxiety around strangers. One day, the wealthy husband of Joe’s customer, is murdered and Joe finds himself suspected by police detectives. At the suggestion of fellow masseur Aguri, Joe uses his massage techniques and powers of observation to solve the mystery and clear his name. This becomes the turning point in his life. After that, he keeps getting involved in strange murder cases at customers’ homes and demonstrates his unexpected talent each time. (Source: JDrama Weblog) Edit Translation

I found this drama by chance while I was browsing the Prime Video catalogue and saw it was a ''detective'' show so I was sold immediately. I'd say this is one of those light-hearted and fun dramas to watch when you don't know what to watch next because I don't think anyone can take seriously a masseur (is that the word?) that solves murder cases after massaging people hahahaha. It seemed very absurd after reading the synopsis and it was still after watching the whole thing but it's very enjoyable and entertaining and I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys comedy in general.

This is one of the most nonsensical dramas I have ever seen. I laughed and worried and fell for each slapstick joke regular in "Japanese culture". Did that last bit make sense?

(If not, I meant: "Something that the Japanese humor finds funny that we in other countries don't necessarily." Does that make sense?)

Anyways... through each episode, I could never figure out who the criminal was ahead of time, the wit and jokes are pitch perfect for each cast member; not to mention the chemistry between each cast member was superb! There are a few twists and turns in this series and some are hilarious, while some are ridiculous, and some you'll never see coming! I've never liked a show this much, this quickly before.

I think this show had a wonderful cast, very interesting music, and a great story! If you aren't looking for something typical to the police/detective/crime/mystery drama then this may not be for you. However, if you are looking for some comedy with an actual storyline that is unique and completely original, then I absolutely recommend this show!
