Tokage is a man with an “overwhelming power of memory” and is as meticulous as Sherlock Holmes. Prior to becoming a PI, Tokage was once an elite detective of the Metropolitan Police Department. However, when a fatal mistake cost the life of his partner, he immediately resigned and later joined the private investigation bureau. Although he has a strong sense of justice and will to fight crime, his unapproachable demeanor and inability to trust anyone, makes working with him almost impossible. It is no doubt the result of losing his partner.
The drama is structured around Tokage and his assistant, as they are contracted by the Metropolitan Police Department to help solve difficult and unsolved cases through undercover investigations.
Cast & Credits
The acting was pretty good. I love Matsuda Shota, and haven't been disappointed with his portrayals in his dramas. So coming into this drama, I had high hopes of his performance and was quite pleased overall. As for the rest of the cast, there was no one else who I was really familiar with, but I did take a liking to Matsuoka Masahiro. He acted well and I enjoyed watching his portrayal of Terashima.. Same goes with Renbutsu Misako, I loved her portrayal of Kaori and how loyal and trusting of a character she was.
As for the music, I loved the drama's theme song. It was fitting for the drama and was upbeat and something anyone would enjoy. Overall, I liked this drama. It may not have been by favorite, but it definitely kept me guessing throughout all 10 episodes and was good in keeping up the suspension. I may watch this again one day, just not anytime soon. I recommend this drama for those who enjoy mystery/crime dramas, and if you're skeptical of starting this drama I suggest you really give it a shot. I personally enjoyed it, so hopefully you will too!
Here's the thing the drama was quite good but not really good at the same time. It's one of those dramas where you'll say well ok I've completed it without having to push myself and I don't regret watching it but it's not something I'll keep in mind. Thus my overall rating is between fair and average.
Renbutsu Misako's and Matsuda Shoda's acting was really good and also the acting of the other actors was really good. The music as far as I listened to them was good.
The not so good aspects: It's the typical drama concept of these genre. You have a rather big case which is followed throughout the drama and then they also solve each episode a case. In this drama what disappointed me was the great final of the drama. It was rather so so compared to the exiting undercover investigations our main lead had.
The good points of this drama are Matsuda Shoda!, good detective story! well-acted drama!
