Meet Honma Kai and Ichinose Jiro, police academy cadets. The intellectual Honma favours a theoretical approach to policing. He is a serious A-student with an analytical mind and excellent memory, which allowed him to develop his profiling skills while at the academy. Appearing aloof, he won't give up on those in need. Conversely, fellow cadet Ichinose's style makes use of his brawn and emotional savvy to get the job done. A fearless fighter with boundless strength, even those with martial arts experience have been known to give him a wide berth! At times, his somewhat goofy demeanor tends to confuse those around him. But he is honest, kind-hearted and always the first to help anyone in trouble. These oddball rookies compensate for their lack of practical experience by applying lessons learnt from the academy combined with a healthy dose of youthful exuberance. They make good friends and partners who balance out each other's shortcomings beautifully. (Source: jdramas.wordpress.com; Edited by MyDramaList] Edit Translation

I haven't watched the parent story so my review is solely based on this drama.

Honma Kai is blessed with genius mind and Ichinose Jiro with compassionate heart. When it comes to physical strength, They aren't some Kind of super heroes who will beat every single villain out there but they got skills man! I have read the synopsis of original k-movie, It was based on a single kidnapping case but as this version was extended into a drama, Many thrilling stories are introduced with each episode. Episode 4 gave special attention to Honma Kai, and followed by it, Ep 5 features an emotional yet funny character introduction of Jiro-chan. This will not follow your basic trope of hate to love kinda friendship as they pretty much clicked with each other in ep 1 itself but you will gradually see their chemistry getting better.
Apart from their journey as police trainees, The plot holds a thrilling twist in final three episodes. You have to patiently wait for it because writer did a great job in confusing viewers. We can say that the start was weak but It gets better and ultimately become one of the best cop drama.
Also there's something You can't resist, Hirano's voice !!! So what you waiting for, try it ASAP.

A good filler drama!

I would recommend watching this without drawing any comparison to its parent story midnight runners, as Japan has its own way of representing a story and also it has been extended into a drama.
It was quite a watch every weekend. The duo was good, had fun watching their comic scenes. Few cases were interesting as the story unfolds. Loved the cameos.
Still, there was something missing that failed to hit my spot. It could have been more engaging. I was quite disappointed with the ost. Most of the Japanese dramas are known to create a single ost for the entire drama that turns out to be quite awesome and just get engraved in your mind. But I wasn't happy with this case. (just my personal preference)
Rewatch value is quite low for me as I already know how the story will unfold.
Just enjoy watching Kai kun and Jiro chan...
