1. Major laughs with each episode! [Rating: 10/10]
I originally just watched this drama because of the cast, but I was really glad I decided to watch it. Each episode is filled with laughter (if you find perverted jokes funny). I love the way Ichihara overreacts to even the slightest stimulus, but he does a good job being serious at the same time. There is a scene with Ichihara and Takaoka which made me die with laughter, but in order to understand it, you have to watch Rookies (in which both actors had a part). I recommend this to anyone who wants to burst their bladder laughing =]

Saru Lock really is a stupid dorama.... yet it is very funny!!! Quite a nice comedy dorama. The casting is pretty good the actors really add something to the comedy, the plot is simple and plain but it works fine (i really dont expect a amazing plot from comedy genre). On the other hand all those sex related stuff during all the show gets really annoying sometimes... And the ending for this dorama probably would get the award of worst ending ever! It doesnt feel like an end at all. i mean... i watched 6,5 hours of Saru trying to get laid and talking 'bout his missing dad and in the end........... nothing (i was really disappointed). Nways... worth for some hours of laughing.

Doesn't get much funnier than a dorama with 2 very horny boys:). The whole concept of the dorama is quite weird - a virgin locksmith solving different cases in order to get laid. But it works perfectly and the dorama is all in all very entertaining. Good acting from the whole cast... especially Ichihara Hayato!

The main character always think awful things in his head OMG and quite weird personality he possessed.... The story is quite steady and full of onna ~.~" The interesting part just when he perform his skill to unlock something >_<"

I'm currently not finished but in fact I love the manga I also really enjoy the dorama though many facts changed. The cast is great and the characters are reeeeaaally strange XDD

This was pretty entertaining to me. The story is about a bunch of perverted guys that just have mischievous adventures. Its kinda random and funny.
