1. A lot darker than you think [Rating: 7/10]
When you watch the first few minutes, you'd think that its going to be a light funny drama, the usual detective series with the comedic sidekicks. But as you continue to watch, you realise that there's a darker side to this series. Abuse, drugs, and so on, are some of the themes used. Another interesting surprise is that you don't find out who the real killer is until the end. However, the lead role should have been given to another actor.

This drama was interesting, and it kept me interested until the end. However, it had the potential to be better.

The best 2008's dorama i've watched... I mean, i was pretty disappointed after watching Rookies, Gokusen 3 and specially Code Blue.
Shibatora is the best 08 dorama i've watched. Even better than Maou..... Nice actors.... a superb plot.... good funny scenes... and when u finish watching one episode it makes u want to watch the following one ASAP. Really good dorama..... thumb up.
BtW... it has one of the BEST show's opening EVER!!! And the ELT song is pretty nice as well.... OVERALL an excelent dorama... Thumbs up!!!

Very nice detective drama. Like Boss, but with a comical and child-friendly nature, well, but not that much. The episodic set up is good, it still delivers a cohesive plot and a very good story telling manner. Teppei is super kawaii!!! He will always be Japanese Harry Potter!!! All the characters are lovable. This is a must watch for everyone. It will never make you bore. Try it now~!

I was deceived by this series. This wasn't a comedy at all, it's more like of a mystery undercover human drama. Although there were funny scenes, it still didn't change the mood for me. But I must admit that I got curious about the Onigami episodes which started at the last part of ep1 to 4 and eventually included on the last episode.

Finally finished. This looked like it was gonna be a cutie comedy but it was actually a dark cop show. It just had the appearance of a comedy. It did have funny bits, but dealt with murder, prostitution, gangs, drugs, police corruption, etc. Weird to get used to but it was good.

A cute, entertaining drama. Very funny at times. I adore Koike Teppei~~ ESPECIALLY IN A MAID COSTUME OMG~~~ But to be totally honest, the plot and characters were kinda cheesy. I had a lot of fun watching this drama, though, overall. :3

Teppei is so cute in this drama and he does look like a 15 year old compare to the police image. Other than that the twist to this drama at the end is a good one.

Good story, everything is fine but the main character, I don't think Koike Teppei fits well the role. if it was given to another actor I would give a 9/10
8. Comments by simpletoad [Rating: 7/10]
refreshing concept . but towards the end , twists and turns in the story made it more and more 'wtf' .

Yay, I totally enjoyed watching it! and I liked the plot...(and Fujiki Naohito..)

Better than I expected. Ohgo was very good, the weakest point was Koike Teppei.
