Cast & Credits
It did get a bit ridiculous but in a good and funny way. Like the way he stalled for time or the way he always got blamed. Truly cringe-worthy.
The detective part of the series was rather cliche but still very entertaining and in all honestly you can't really go wrong with a Japanese detective story line.
The lead not being a cop or a detective or something of the short but just a model trying not to get locked up, was a nice change.
I did figure out the ending plot quit quickly but then again I don't thing they tried to make it much of a mystery anyway. The real mystery of this series were the individual cases in every episode. The way the crimes were committed and more importantly why.
I also enjoyed the side characters colorful personalities and the actors confidence while playing them. I never felt like their acting was awkward.
Also Shimon Toma's (Furukawa Yuki's) unusual hair totally made it hard for me not to laugh, though he did pull it off very well :) And watching Maneki Kei (Tamamori Yuta) kept reminding me about his earlier "tantei" drama; Seishun tantei haruya XD
Forgetting all the typical Japanese drama characters and twists this had a fresh feeling to it.
Overall it was a very light and easy watch.
I recommend you watch this sometime.
Really good for those boring days you want to watch something but just don't want to concentrate too hard.
It took me 2 days to complete.
It would have taken a day normally but I found this at night and didn't want to pull another all-nighter, so, I did the responsible thing and slept!
Just warning all those other marathon watchers! ;)
Each time Kei or the 2 models start to cat walk, I can't ! I just Can't! it's the most ridiculously funniest thing! Solving crimes while being a model. The cat walking bit is slab-sticky but I'm sold! I bought it all. I love it. It's funny to me. Other people might find it slab-sticky. Each time it reminds me of the transformation in a Sailor Moon Episode or some Anime Motif. He says the same lines over and over in each episode like shouting "i'm not the culprit!". He'd cat walk and pose in the middle of everything. Strange but Funny. Some eps are easy to guess who the culprit is, but some eps are good/hard enough. So light hearted. A No stress watch. Not dramatic. The only bad thing about this is it is not popular enough to get picked and we need more episodes! Can't find it on stream sites but have to download subs.
