Kazama Naoki is a crack detective at the private investigation firm Nemesis in Yokohama. He has a brilliant mind like Sherlock Holmes and solves every difficult case. But the true detective is actually his talented assistant Mikami Anna. The two of them, who make quite an odd duo, are searching for Anna’s father Hajime. He is a scientist and went missing all of a sudden. Together with Kurita Kazuaki, the owner of Nemesis who is Hajime’s good friend, Anna and Kazama seek clues to his disappearance. As they take on one puzzling trick-ridden case after another, they seem to find a hint related to her father each time that brings about a new riddle. Then they learn that the key to solving the mystery of his disappearance is a 20-year-old incident that has been buried in darkness. What Anna does not yet realize is that both Kazama and Kurita are connected to this incident (Source: jdramas.wordpress.com) Edit Translation

Wow, stunningly bad writing to the bitter end

If you wish to see some of the best actors in Japan acting the hell of some o f the shittiest scripts you will ever see, then this is the show for you.

For most of its run its meant to be a light murder of the week mystery show, and you might find maybe the first 7 episodes endearing as such; however, even there most of the scenarios and "solutions" to the mysteries happen because the writer says so and not particularly because he planted clues that would result in the kind of satisfactory resolution that is de rigueur in these kind of shows. And ALL of the recurring characters are idiots accept Anna (Hirose Suzu) and a friend, Tomori (Hashimoto Kanna), she makes early on. Almost all of the rest of the characters are played pretty much as comedic buffoons. I mean, maybe Maki Yoko's Mizuho and Tomita Miu's Kaoru are not buffoons, but SOMEONE has to provide the the exposition and deus ex machina that the wretched writer has to rely on to progress the plots such as they are. Even the head of the detective agency played by the legendary star, Eguchi Yosuke, who is supposed to be this retired master detective never actually solves anything throughout the series and only exists to do some tepid fight scenes which are meant to bring some action to the series but only occur because the writer wanted there to be a fight scene at that point in the script.

The tone of the series arc which is hinted at in all the all episodes and resolved in the final episodes entirely contradicts the lighter tone of the earlier episodes, and nothing about that arc makes sense. Things like Anna being set up throughout the series as a genetically modified supergenius are entirely ignored by the writer in the (anti)climactic final episodes mostly because he only has a passing acquaintance with intelligence himself.

I'd say skip this series even if you are a stan of the greats like Hirose, Eguchi and Maki and the goods like Arashi's Sakurai Sho,

..I'M GOING IN *whoosh~*..

..after Your Lie On April, this is the second time I watch Suzu Hirose's drama act..

..comedy, action, mystery, all in one - every minute, worth it..

..the funny part for me is where the revealing who the criminal is - since they are the tandem (Suzu and Sho) - so better to watch how the process is going - kinda creative for me..

..plus having Kanna Hashimoto on the casts is a plus. . .and also better to see some of her movies and drama too (my another crush on my list hihi)..

..love this drama too..
