To the average person on the street, Shibata Taketora looks like a unassuming teenager who's small and vulnerable enough for bullies to see as an easy target. But he's actually a police detective (not to mention a kendo expert) with a babyface he makes good use of, whether going undercover at a juvenile detention center or high school, or just investigating crimes in his own way. Taketora has a supernatural ability to see the "hands of death" around people whose life is nearing the end, especially if they stay on the same course. It's a heavy weight for him, as he also has the gift of empathy and deeply cares about the people involved in his cases. Along with his offbeat group of friends, this unusual cop gets to the heart of the matter as he tackles his cases—and tries to save lives on the edge.

This was one of the best dramas I have ever watched in my life. It has the right amount of action, friendship, comedy and even a (tiny) bit of love. Koike Teppei was extremely good. He was the perfect baby faced officer. The rest of the cast was also very well chosen. Acting was top notch. The story line, well one word; AMAZING! Music was nothing special but it suits the drama.
I only thought of watching this because of Koike Teppei,but after the first episode I was completely hooked, not just because of him, but because of the whole plot and the cast. I will definitely re-watch this again, and I highly recommend this to any one who love action, police stories and Koike Teppei.

All in all, Awesome!!

Definitely did not see the ending coming!! The cast was wonderful; filled with familiar and new faces. I've only seen Koike Teppei in the movie "Kids", so this genre and type of story was a complete turn around but I immediately fell in love with the story, the cast, and the script. I watched all 11 episodes in one day; from about 1:30pm until 2:30am! If you're looking for a drama to break a slump or if you're just getting in to Japanese dramas, this one could be right for you! It fills the slice-of-life, comedy, detective, mystery genres very well; there is romance and some parts are a bit cheesy, but nothing too horrible. This drama was amazing, I was completely captured from the first episode!

The actors/actresses in this show could also lead the viewers to other shoes like "Kamen Rider","Mikeneko Holmes no Suiri", "the Quiz Show 2", "Kaito Yamaneko"... just to name a few!!
