2. Sci-Fi / Detective Dorama for the Pre-teens [Rating: 5/10]
As much as I love to see the acting of Shida Mirai, this show was just not for me.
I guess that this dorama is alright, it is well done, the story seems interesting, the special skills and personal stories of the main characters are revealed little by little, all in all it is ok.
But the audience has to be pre-teens, except maybe for the crime scenes that are very graphic.
Watch it if you're 14 (physically or mentally :-)

3. A QUITE GOOD DORAMA [Rating: 8/10]
I had read the manga, i think the dorama and the manga are two very different thing. Even some of the cases in dorama are same with in the manga, the characters here are very different, especially Ryuu, Megu, Kazuma, and Cerberus. I have to say that i have a same opinion about this live-action, this live action is so bad. But, as dorama it's quite good, and i like the plot. Afterall, you must once try watch this!

It's a fun mystery drama about a group of kids who each have their own special abilities that they can use to solve crimes. Because of their abilities, they are recruited into a young detective agency called Tantei Gakuen Q hence the name of the show. (The special that airs before this series shows the process of recruiting) It's a must watch if you plan on watching this series.

Acting is so-so and the plot for this show is episodic linked only by this mysterious character who seems to be behind everything using some kind of mind control. There are a lot of better mystery dramas aside from this one, but this one is lighthearted and it's a good way to pass the time.

I really like the last episode and the episode before the last. It's really an enjoyable drama especially after you have solved the case and found out how they did it. One thing i didn't like was the main actor. When he was younger and took on minor roles,he did a job but in this drama,his acting really looked fake and as if he's an amateur in acting. Sigh....i thought he would have done a better job though. Ryousuke on the other hand did an excellent job. No doubt although he's a young actor,he can act really well. I wouldn't be surprised if one day,he becomes as famous as his senpais (matsujun,yamapi..).

Great cast, and although the concept isn't too original, I thought this show did fairly well. The "finale" episode was not up to par at all with the rest of the series though, and one thing that kept nagging me was that it seemed like the Q Class were never really in a pinch. I mean, they're just kids for crying out loud (except for Kinta); there should have been a bit more conflict and troubles. In comparison to other tantei dramas, I think that's where this one falls flat; they had characters that were hardly Mary/Marty Sues, but the cases were all solved way too neatly, making that not so apparent.

Bad.. i don't know how to explain it. Even Shida mirai can't save this drama, the bond between the character are so fake, you can tell it by watch the first episode. Kyuu Tried to unite DDS student and make a solid team, but it feels so fake..hehhh, this is the main factor i don't like a too much children involved in the drama. I watch ryunosuke in bloody monday and yamada in 1 pound no fukuin, they did well in that series but not in this drama. About this drama, only episode 4, 5 and 6 that impressed me. Really dissapointed.

I grew really excited when I first started watching this because I recognized most of the "child" actors. Overall, the show is interesting with humor and mystery mixed in very well. The characters were very likeable, especially "Ryuu." Each case was extremely fascinating and not one of those crappy detective shows where the answers are right in front of the characters while they bumble around, obliviously ignoring the obvious. The drama was fun and addicting to watch. A plus was watching for "budding talent."

So-So... although some episodes were really nice (with a superb plot and stuff) some was just rubbish. The same thing goes for the casting some young actors r really good but some sux bad. Speaking of wich i dunno 'bout the manga or the anime but watching a dorama with some brats looking for serial murders and doing all those detective stuff is really annoying. "Tantei Gakuen Q" is those doramas that r good if u dont have anything better to do (or watch...)

I've been watching this drama all over again and I'm never fed up watching it! The plot is good (despite the fact some people said that it's not as good as the anime), interesting and thrilling sometimes, all the characters are really cute too.
And I love how Yamada Ryosuke and Shida Mirai played their roles in this drama, so cute! Kaname Jun really suits being a big brother of the detective group!

I really like this series! I'm planning to buy it when I returned back to the states since at the moment, I'm in Japan. Anwyays, it's totally awesome! I really like the thinking and the cases that are thrown at to the four of them. Definitely worth to watch! Espcially, Kyuu, Meg and Ryuu are so cute together!
9. Comments by strawberrynkiwi [Rating: 8/10]
8.5! It was refreshing to watch young potential actors/actresses, especially Yamada Ryousuke and Shida Mirai. I am definitely too old to be fantasizing over Yamada, but he is the cutest boy ever. I see a lot of potential in him. Mystery was never my thing, but it was definitely enjoyable. Great acting, great plot.

Only watched the first episode. All I can say is, I really don't like watching a drama full of little people =P (especially little people who don't act that well *ahem* the lead *ahem*) Even the fact that it's a detective story can't save it from getting a 1.
11. Comments by sword_of_heaven [Rating: 7/10]
Very nice to watch as a stand alone feature, as the actors are good, and stories are reasonably good as well. However, if you have read the manga and/or seen the anime, you will make comparisons and you will be a little let down.

This is a detective adventure with kids for kids and younger teens, based on a hugely popular manga. The young actors are absolutly charming, and the music lovely - this is a nine but for kids :-).

WONDERFUL! This drama is pick of the crop! I love the mysteries even if they were easy to solve, but I really enjoy the interaction and the innosence of the schow! Everything is well put together.

It was okay... no high expectations from the drama. the characters weren't exactly the same as the manga which placed a lot of mysteries. in other words, it was much more better with the manga...
15. Comments by cutesawada [Rating: 7/10]
cuuuuuuuuute. I liked the anime too. I was kind of disappointed in some characters but pleasantly surprised by others. It's a good watch if you're bored or want to *solve* a mystery.

I love detective shows, so of course i love this one! I really love the idea of having kids my age to be the detectives and go through somewhat real life situations, and friendships.
17. Comments by butterLiLy [Rating: 7/10]
To my surprise, I actually enjoyed it! Just like it's SP...although the cheesy moments were there but its not that much of a cringe-worthy. And I see great future on those kids.

this is a really good series... Yamada is so cute in this series i love him. the story of the series is not bad. it is different from other dramas i have seen.

I think if I was so 10 years younger I could enjoy it :) However I did nit understad the role of Jun Kaname in this dorama. He did not fit in at all.

Nice mystery, Ryunosuke is getting older though, sadly....It was hard to figure out the cases, but the story was a little bit bland sometimes.

Probably would have loved it at age 12 or so. Kinda dumb, but not horrible and the kids are cute. I also loved both theme songs.

I hated it, felt slow almost every episode, the kids were too emo, and plot completely unoriginal. Just felt really stale.
