Asagi Serina (Fukada Kyoko) is a housewife who loves her husband, Takefumi (Fujiki Naohito), to the extent that she would not mind being his shadow. However, his response to her excessive devotion is to attempt to avoid her "burdensome", "gross" expression of love.

With a wife's naivety, she refuses to suspect her husband of infidelity, and initially gets frustrated. One day, with the help of her good friend, Motoko (Ashina Sei), Serina goes out for a meal with the men at the publishing company where Motoko works. The moment a man in the group makes a move on her, it is captured on film by the sleuth, Jinnai Haruki (Kiritani Kenta). Not wanting her husband to see the photograph, Serina starts working at Jinnai's detective agency as an assistant.

This ordinary, bumbling housewife grows stronger and improves her self-confidence through the skills she hones. Serina wants to support and help her husband instead of flaunting her new self to him because he is having a hard time. Aware of the problem that happened to her husband because of her over positivity, she sets about trying to solve it. -- Jdrama Weblog -- DramaWiki

A houswife whose life revolves around her not-so-interested husband, has the chance to grow and blossom as she becomes a private detective.

I adore this drama. Serina, Jinnai and all the other characters are 3 dimensional people with a lot of heart. The mysteries themselves aren't mind blowing but the character growth and interactions are.

It's also amusing to watch. And Fukada Kyoko is fabulous as the obsessive and clingy Serina who likes to don disguises while she does her undercover work.

The highlight of the show was the interactions between Serina and Jinnai, her boss at the detective agency. They were so cute and funny together.

A good drama. Recommended.

Serina loves her husband a lot. She lives only to please him and is more than happy to do so. She doesn’t understand that this sort of clingy behaviour is the reason why her husband, Fumi-kun, doesn’t want to be around her anymore. But all that changes when she meets Jinnai, a private detective who was originally tracking Serina.

Serina starts working for Jinnai and each episode chronicles a case she’s working on. The case plays a role with her own love life and she starts to change for the better. Plus, it looks like Jinnai starts looking at her in a different light too.

There is also Fumi-kun, Serina’s despicable husband. He’s involved with his boss, the Chief. The reasons why he’s doing this is for Serina’s dad, but the entire situation between them is getting messier with each passing episode. The actor is quite good. You go from hating Takefumi, to liking him. I was surprised how my feelings changed.

The show has a great story, the characters are not only wonderfully acted but show growth as well. The last scene in the show was predictable, but it fit the light theme of this drama.

Definitely check this out! This is not only cute, but as the series goes on it really sucks you in.
