Based on a popular novel series by Akagawa Jiro. Also known in English as “Calico Cat Holmes,” the series has had dozens of books released, with a total of more than 26 million copies in print.

Aiba plays Katayama Yoshitaro, the son of a famous police detective. He followed his father’s dying wish and became a detective as well, but with his inability to look at blood and his fears of heights, ghosts, and women, he failed to succeed in his work. But one day, he meets a Calico cat named Holmes who can understand human speech and has extraordinary powers of deduction. The two form a duo, working together to solve difficult cases. --Tokyograph

This drama was a representation of the Japanese trend of detective dramas during the time period it was aired, with those like Ataru and Nazotoki... dramas. Taking away bias because I am an Arashi fan, I didn't really appreciate this light-hearted drama. I felt like it was trying to show some morals in the mix of comedy but it was a bit subtle for my taste. The story didn't get me hooked, and frankly I just watched it for the sake of finishing it. In one word to describe it, it was lukewarm. It was great for passing time with nothing else to watch, but I wouldn't call this a great drama. The music was great though. I felt like the lyrics somewhat related to the main character and the song at the ending was very soft and melodic, which was nice to hear. I just wish the story delved a bit more into the plot rather than just crack the surface and made the story into its own, rather than just another detective drama.

I'm glad I watched this drama for a second time! Aiba Masaki and Okura Tadayoshi have a fantastic rapport that make the show! Their personalities, lines, characteristics, and talents mesh and clash in an amazing way! I liked Fujiki Naohito and Oomasa Aya as well; I won't say they were a "perfect" match for Aiba Masaki's siblings, but they interacted superbly; they seemed to act and play, fight and make up, tease and support each other like a real family would. The story was easy to follow, although at some points in the technical police terms I got lost. Also, make sure you have tissues prepared. Matsuko Deluxe was absolutely hilarious, and the cat (himself/herself) was absolutely wonderful as well! I definitely suggest people watch this drama! And maybe the funds for a calico kitty... but that's just my personal opinion! Hahaha!! ^__^/)
