Labor Standards Inspectors… are you aware of their existence? For the sake of the 52 million actively employed people across the nation, the government had set up this body to help ensure that there is safety at workplaces. Danda Rin, is an example of a very diligent and strict inspector. She doesn’t compromise when it comes to the rules.
The story opens with the transfer of Danda Rin to the new Labor Standards Inspector office. “She had caused her boss at her ex-office to go bald!!” is the rumor that accompanies her to her new office. Danda Rin is someone who doesn’t do things in half measures, which is totally unlike the laidback male colleagues in the office. “Unpaid overtime”, “Managers in name only”, “Power harassment by managers”; these are all the things she fights against!

Cast & Credits
The cases which they solved were realistic and heart breaking. Some episodes made me cry.
Labor Standards Act may vary among different countries but watching this will give you a background about your basic rights as an employee. :D
Each episodes deal with different violations of labor standards and how Danda Rin and her colleagues would deal with it. The show tackles serious issues but the comic nature of it is what makes every episodes interesting. The non work-related chats in the office and the meetings are hilarious. Still, with that said, it manages to maintain the social relevance of the story.
Takeuchi Yuko did an amazing job as the overly strict labor standards officer Danda Rin. Kitamura Kazuki is also noteworthy as section chief Doteyama (one of the best bosses in jdrama imo). The supporting casts and guests also did well. Fortunately, no overacting here.
The music fits well as it emphasizes the comic/superhero vibe of the show.
I highly recommend this drama to everyone.
