With the progress made in forensic science, the number of cases of arrested criminals proven innocent because of new DNA tests have been increasing. The police always expect to swiftly solve cases. As crime scene detectives try to measure up to those expectations, they occasionally jump to wrong conclusions. Thus, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police’s First Investigative Division set up the Evidence Verification Section and gave it the important task of validating cases that have been closed within a limited time in order to prevent wrongful convictions from happening as a result of out of control investigators at crime scenes. But its actual job is to correct typographical errors and omissions and stamp investigation reports with the words ‘verification completed’, and then send it over to public prosecutors.

The members of the section headed by a veteran detective who worked his way up and has lost passion for his work, are a little idiosyncratic and somewhat difficult. It is merely a titular section meant to call the attention of the public to the fairness of the police. Deputy Inspector Shinkai Akira (Mizuki Arisa), a career elite who has been sidelined as a result of some incident, is assigned to be the new leader of the Evidence Verification Section. A sharp-minded female who gives the impression of an eccentric person, Akira breaks away from the bureaucratic work and genuinely starts to validate evidence, demonstrating her ability to take action and sense of justice in order to rally her disillusioned subordinates. Discovering new facts from small doubts in the reports, she overturns cases that should have been solved and finds the true criminals.

This detective drama is from a second investigation's viewpoint, so therefore instead of trying to solve a case from a fresh start it's interestingly revealing facts on a report that could have been misinterpreted or overlooked. I found this viewpoint refreshing after so many crime/detective dramas recently.

The stories unwrapped in each episode are well written and thought of, it will make you try and guess the culprit and even if you do it's still entertaining to see how they manage to find evidence and conclusion.

Some of the stories I thought were exceptionally good, only a couple I thought of as average. A lot of time is spent on looking into the suspect's backgrounds which brings a lot of surprises forward.

Obviously it feels unrealistic sometimes but that is a given for any "feel-good" dramas. Still there are many moments of excitement and unexpected outcomes as well as warm feelings in it.

So for these reasons I enjoyed this show very much and would recommend it to anyone who likes the main actress and/or crime/detective genre.

a truly interesting drama. it was very good, with inspiring stories. it has a completely new way of seeinginto things. this drama is about someone who will not stop until she finds the answer to a murder case that she finds strange from the beginning. this is why i decided to give it a try. besides i am somewhat a support of alysa as an actress and generally the acting in this drama from the guest stars and the regulars was simply great. i will not exclude the veteran actors that we keep seeing in dramas again and again. I like how she always found her hints in the reports and then she was going around gathering the details and investigating. This drama had quite some amusing moments as well so it is not just serious all the time.
