Let me start by saying that while this drama was made among some bad rumors and reports of one of the main actors, that it doesn't make this drama any less interesting to watch, so please do not let your opinions or the reports cloud your view while watching!

I did like seeing a bit of role reversal in this show, it was refreshing to watch something a little different within the typical dramas/shows/movies/etc... of the detective, crime, mystery, investigation, and police genre. The more I watched this role reversal acting, the more intriguing the story becomes.

The stories seemed to follow the basic outline for the typical detective/crime stories, however, the script itself seemed to have a completely different basis. This show really is wonderful, even though there are only three episodes, and I do believe that it has the potential to be something; sadly, however, I'm not sure if anyone will take the chance on this show to remake it into what it could be.

It was fun to watch each story unfold from beginning to end with their different crimes and different stories! This is a good story to watch if you're in a slump, don't know what to watch next, or are just starting out watching Japanese or detective/crime/mystery dramas. Not once could I identify the suspect, though that could just be my stupidity! (lol)

Brought to you by the makers of "Trick".

This show is basically a retelling of Trick, instead of a professor and a magician dealing with supernatural mysteries, you have a detective and an idol solving murder mysteries. I loved Trick and I loved this show, Hamabe Minami is wonderful as the scheming yet master of deduction idol. The interaction of the 2 leads is quite enjoyable. There are some good gags and side characters that Hamabe's character plays off of well. Her efforts for fame turn out much like Naoko's efforts for wealth turned out. I really would like to have more of this show.
So, to sum it up if you liked Trick, you might like this show too.
