In a society in which justice is awfully subjective, and the possibility of finding the truth is so complicated, detective Yugami simply chases after the facts of various cases. He will casually approach potential suspects and talk to them in order to attain new information. All he is looking for are the facts. He feels that there is no point in following the rules, nor trying to read the atmospheres of the environment he's in. For him, resorting to unique and illegal investigations is not out of the ordinary. To assist him, he also has a sidekick, Torao Hanyu, who's a serious detective with a completely different personality. For Yugami, he simply wants to arrest as many criminals as possible through his illegal investigation style, so Torao's existence becomes a bother for him. Two detectives with absolutely nothing in common, somehow try to combine their skills in order to combat the enemies of society.

I had a fun time watching this drama because the characters were  excellent and the cases were all engaging. I think it is hard to find  mystery drama where both aspects are strong. In many ways, "Keiji Yugami" reminded me of "Legal High":

1. the opening sequence: each episode has a different sequence, but they  are all about the same thing: YUgami and Hanyu kicking/punching each  other. They were all awesome XD and they all left me with a smile on my  face.

2. Yugami as the senior cop, is childish and doesn't  follow rules. In fact, he sometimes breaks the law (for example, he  unlocks doors and safety cases with his pin). He doesn't play "dirty" as  Komikado-sensei, but he is always right.

3. Hanyu, as the rookie cop, is more emotional but also sticks to the rules. He disapproves Yugami's methods to find the truth, but deep down, he admires and respects Yugami (like Gakky).

4. Yugami has his own "hacker" who is a big help in all his cases. Not like Komikado's "ninja", but similar.

Yugami  is less "funny" and less "eccentric" than Komikado-sensei, but he was a  good character, which could be because he was played by the awesome Asano Tadanobu. Actually, the whole cast was good. You could tell that they had a great time working together.

I  love all the guests stars. Most of them A-Stars. This was one of the  highlights of the drama (I was waiting for a certain actor, who acts for  a couple of episodes). And all cases were excellent! Not so much of the  "whodunit" but "why" (like most of Japanese mysteries). And most of the  time, like 90% of them, the murderer/criminal had a sad story and you  can't help but feel sorry for them :( There were cases that made me feel  sad for the criminal.

For mystery lovers that are looking for cases not so gloomy, this one is perfect to watch.

This is one of my absolute favorites of 2018! I definitely think this drama shows off the best of each and every character and is one of Kamiki Ryunosuke's best! Each episode's opening was a little different, but I really liked the song and the "opening act", too; it kind of got you hyped to see what the episode was about. I wish there were more episodes or a second season because every episode was amazing; the storyline flowed well together to fit into the entire story from beginning to end, each actor played their part well and each case was thrilling up until the very end! Kamiki Ryunosuke was a great detective in this series; serious but willing to laugh with others, too. It was my first time watching a drama with Asano Tadanobu, and I'm always cautious with new shows when I know 5 or fewer actors, and I didn't really like his character at the beginning of the series, but he grew on me so quick; his acting with Kamiki was really superb, they made an awesome team! And I have to say that once I looked up this series, I did recognize more actors than I first thought! So I am very glad I gave this show a chance. It was more interesting, well put together, and well made than I assumed; definitely a favorite show I will rewatch!
