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.

Honestly if you are looking for a procedural look elsewhere. If you are looking for a quick comedy without much drama then I would definitely recommend this show. I'd say it's more like a parody of recent detective shows where the main lead has some kind of shtick that make them great detectives. The episodes are only 30mins each so there's not much setup for the murder of the week. Still the interactions between the cast is what makes the show. The show doesn't take itself seriously and neither should you, otherwise you will not enjoy it.
