Kindaichi was the grandson of a famous detective, and although had an IQ of 180, did not do well in school. He cracked many cases using logic and the leads he could find at the scenes of murder. Although the murderers could be predictable at times, it is interesting to see how he solved the mystery.

1. Kindaichi 1 & 2 are the greatest! [Rating: 10/10]
I voted 10 for 1, and i think 2 is equally superb!

Tsuyoshi is the perfect kindaichi for the drama! Rie is such a lovely miyuki! Even makabe, saki and kenmochi are so GREAT!!! no ONE can ever replace them.

'Kindaichi' is great because they never waste time filming unnecessary things, all you see is all important to solve the mystery! Kindaichi and Miyuki's bickering adds happiness against 'sad' story behind each murderer.

'Kenmochi' is like a 'dear uncle' instead of giving us the typical police officer image, which makes me feel that they have an enjoyable time working together, and has develop a kind of chemistry.

believe it or not, i cried for some of the episodes, when the criminal told his/her story. it's not the story that is touching, it's the little details they filmed... ...

This is one of the very first doramas I've ever seen and I thought it was good. Of course, the cases are predictable but it's still interesting to see if you're suspicion is correct and to see how Hajime (Tsuyoshi) points out the culprit because he usually does something interesing instead of just saying "He did it!" Plus I loved Tomosaka's and Tsuyoshi's arguments because they are quite hilarious. After you watch the cases, there isn't much replay value, but the hilarious bits in the beginning and end (sometimes in th middle) of each episode are fun to wath over and over.

3. The best [Rating: 10/10]
Out of all the doramas that Tsuyoshi has starred in i love this on the best. I watch it over and over again and this is also the dorama that made me interested in Tsuyoshi. I highly recommend this dorama to anyone as the stories in there are really good and unpredictable. Tsuyoshi looks really cool in it and Rie looks good too. I always enjoy the little humor parts and also the romantic bits.

This is one of the best mystery episodes i've ever seen. Some pplz say that dohmoto looks weenie in the episode but i reckon he looks cute.But i think you should watch the first one first to get the rest of this episode.

What can I say? A delightful sequel to the highly rated Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo based off of the manga. Dohmoto Tsuyoshi shines as Kindaichi, the grandson of the famous detective. Because of his reputation, police officers and other detectives oftentimes look for him for help. I really enjoyed the fact that even though this was a drama, you could tell that it was based off of a manga and I really liked how faithfully Tsuyoshi tried to portray Kindaichi's personality as best as he could.

Each of the series of stories was interesting and how Kindaichi is able to reveal the murderer or what had actually taken place is always surprising, though sometimes very twisted. Some of the scenarios were even pretty scary. Out of all the mystery dramas that I've seen thus far, Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo definitely has to be one of the best.

Way too predicatable. A guy and a girl decide to go on some sort of trip and end up tangled in a murder mystery case. 2 people die. The guy vows to solve the mystery. The police man thinks he knows the who the killer is. The guy says he is wrong and magically discovers a detail. He confronts the killer. The killer confesses why he did it. Everyone is happy. The girl tries to tell the guy she likes him but he's too busy flirting with another girl. The end.

Painful to watch. Luckily Rie Tomasaka and a Kinki Kid was in it, or I'd gave this 0.

This was the first Japanese drama that got me hooked. Great chemistry between the cast members and Tsuyoshi and Rie are a great duo/pair. A good balance of humour and suspense. Stories/Files are semi-predictable but wonderful to watch and figure out. I used to hate watching "whodunit" shows especially w/ supernatural legends but this is a great show that got me in and I just loved every episode. Title song for part 2 is cool. Highly recommended.

Altho this one is better than da first one, I gave them the same rating becuz only some episodes were good! I remember there were about 3 episode dat lagged and I couldn't stand watching it so I left it out! So this equalz to the first one . . . but in my opinion the rest of the stories were better than da first one! You'll have to watch both to get the story! Hope this helped!

Kindaichi returns!! I think my vcd set doesn't really show the entire series, because they included the movie at the back. But still, I always like the fact that Miyuki is taller than Kindaichi!! :D I thought the stories are better in this series as well. And Miyuki's dress sense kinda improves too :P
6. Comments by ben_soh23 [Rating: 8/10]
pretty much like this drama due to the pairing of dohmoto tsuyoshi and tomosakai rei... like the manga, this show was full of suspense and make u wanna find out what happens and who's the killer.... but to me the manga was more entertaining..... but dohmoto tsuyoshi do look a bit like kindaichi...haha
7. Comments by rockysfr [Rating: 9/10]
An excellent continuation of the first season. The second series consists of more 2-parters, which would definitely satisfy the viewer cum sleuths. With the exact same casts as the first season coupled with the same elements of mystery, horror and suspense, this series truly lives up to its name.
8. Comments by princess [Rating: 10/10]
I love this. Tsuyoshi is so cute. Whenever he is trying to chat with the girls, he always get caught by Miyuki. Personally think this is best kindaichi drama.... ^^ no other ones can beat it even if there are more Kindaichi dramas coming up. =P
9. Comments by Wisteria [Rating: 10/10]
One of my first J- doramas, highly recommended. Tsuyoshi is very good as Kindaichi bringing out the the comedic and seriousness of the character, Rie fits the part of Miyuki well and there's a definite chemistry between the two characters.
10. Comments by sayurikurata [Rating: 10/10]
My comments are the same for the 1st part. ^^ The mysteries are great! The murderer always seems to be the one you would never suspect. I definitely recommend this series to those who love mysteries and cases like me ^_^
11. Comments by amethyst [Rating: 9/10]
Follow up from part 1. Also adapted from the manga. As great as the first one, but now the stories tend to last 2 episodes instead of 1. But the new theme song by Tsuyoshi sounds terrible.
12. Comments by snell [Rating: 10/10]
If u love detective stories, this one should be the one to catch. Although after watching 3 seasons of this series, certain parts become predictable, still enjoyed it tremedously. =)
13. Comments by montanaky [Rating: 10/10]
the best kindaichi series ever! my fave comic, n tsuyoshi's acting's great.. basically part one n two's the same, so i'll jus say the same for both, highly highly recommended!!!

A continuation of jikenbo 1, more cases, a bit more crazy than the first season. However, I think the "Shanghai Mermaid" case was horrible. The original is still the best.
15. Comments by Jessicasoon [Rating: 7/10]
it's about the same as part1. filmed continuously together at the same time i guess. to me, i still prefer part 3 alot. oh well, there's ken miyake in part 2. hehe. bonus.
16. Comments by rikastar [Rating: 8/10]
This one is basically an extension of the 1st series so it's still pretty good. Of course, the 1st one has left a stronger impression in my mind but I still love this. :)

See how young kindaichi solve every cases. I always like the part which he would point at the murderer and tell how he solve the whole case. Very enjoyable.
18. Comments by nagaioyasumi [Rating: 9/10]
Very good! We see more violent, more mature cases here, obviously the director has up-ed the tomato sauce meter! ^^ Loved the two-second Koichi appearance!

i watched it so long ago la... but i remembered that i liked it because tsuyoshi was damn cute there and the story plots and mysteries were nice.

the theme song is good.. and whatever it is domoto tsuyoshi is THE kindaichi who can pull it off.. matsujun though cute is a little un-kindaichi

same as the first one .. it's great to see Tsuyoshi and Tomosaka Rie as [hajime-chan] & [miyuki] ... perfect !!!

The story goes a bit too slow, but other than that, I love the plot(s), and of course Tsuyoshi-kun as Kindaichi! ^^

One of my first J- doramas, highly recommended. Tsuyoshi is very good as Kindaichi bringing out the the comedic and seriousness of the character, Rie fits the part of Miyuki well and there's a definite chemistry between the two characters. And the cases are excellent, some really keeps you guessing till the end.
