First things first: I owe Kazama Shunsuke a public apology (Japanese-style, with deep bow and all that).
While reviewing "Cheat", in fact, I had been quite harsh to him, doubting his acting skills - although I *did* add that "....maybe the fault lies with the script...". Apparently, that was it indeed, as in this "Oshii Keiji", also thanks to the masterfully written script by Uda Manabu (such a talented writer, seriously!), Kazama was nothing short of brilliant! ^____^
Add a pretty good performance by the rest of the cast (let me spend a word for the totally gorgeous Ishikawa Ren and Yasuda Seia!), the afore-mentioned great script (mixing nicely elaborate mystery plots with so many absolutely hilarious scenes!), an extremely nice soundtrack and a definitely better than average production value...and what you get is, simply put, a lil' gem of a drama.
Can't wait to watch the sequel too! ^___-

A lighthearted & fun (and seemingly underrated) detective story

If you're looking for a crime drama which will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat, then this is not the show for you.
While there's some mystery (especially in the background story which follows the protagonist throughout the series, and will leave you wanting more), the show has a more a Pink Panther, Agatha Christie or Sherlock Holmes's novels vibe to it. If you like the genre, the story is well-written. In each episode a different case is being solved, and with each one the protagonist's character and his relationships with his coworkers develop and gradually change.

The only problem I had with the story is the protagonist's sexist-bordering-on-ridiculous approach to women. I get it's part of the character development, but still. Some of it was unnecessary and actually not an authentic representation of neither virgin Otakus nor sexist doucheb*gs.

I think the acting was superb, really. Each actor portrayed their character perfectly.

The music was mostly fine and added to the Pink Panther~ish vibe of the series, though sometimes I think it was a tad inappropriate.

Overall, I would probably watch it again when I want to watch something light & fun. Go check it out!
