Tokino Mitani runs a watch shop, located on a street far from the downtown area. She is 20-years-old and inherited the watch shop from her grandfather. Unknown to most, she is also an excellent private detective and offers an alibi cracking service. She can crack someone's false alibi by using logic based on time and a watch. She gets paid 5,000 yen for that service. Yoshiyuki Saji was an elite police officer, but he attempted to uncover corruption within the police department. This caused Yoshiyuki Saji to receive a demotion to a police station in a rural city. He moves alone there, leaving behind his wife and child. He lives at a boarding house, where Tokino Mitani lives. Yoshiyuki Saji does not get along with the other detectives there. He struggles to solve a case, and he hears about Tokino Mitani's ability as an alibi cracker. He doesn't want to ask for her help because of his pride as a police officer, but ends up requesting her help on a case. Edit Translation

Time's Fun

This was a delightful confection. The very lovely Ms Hamabe is quite implausibly cute, and the whole Drama is threaded with a delightfully wry gentle humour. A super short watch, the perfect dessert after finishing a longer, heavier Drama. The pairing of a 19 yr old with a 45 year old seemed potentially troubling, but the total absence of any amorous overtones (excepting the occasional nosebleed) made it a non-issue. A highly recommended amuse-bouche, of the sort that Japan seems to do better than others.

This review may contain spoilers

Some of the mystery explained still have some plothole.

The comedy and the plot in this story is so so. Hamabe's acting sometimes looks forced like when she's getting mad at and she's not responding well, and her priorities is confusing. Is it to break the alibi? Or to repair the clock? And as I said in the headline, some of the mystery explained will still leave you some question. Like some things just doesn't make sense. The show doesn't show character developent and I was watching till the last eps but I still don't understand who's Tokino's grandfather himself. Tokino is really good at breaking alibi and she's accepting the work to break the alibi, she should be famous at least to her client or her gramps client but she's not? It's just weird enough to me that she currently only accepting job from Saji. But overall it is still enjoyable to watch. Just not the best from the genre. And the cinematography is good.
