A fashionable wardrobe is never a priority in detective dramas, so if the crimes involved are not intriguing or if the lead detective has no charisma, the show doesn't sell.

In this case, I can't watch Deka Wanko on a black and white screen. Her lolita wardrobe and room setting are a feast to my eyes. After all, lolita fashion is peculiar. Having Wanko to run with platform shoes is unbelievable because we know even Lady Gaga topples over hers. But she needs those shoes to look taller than her 5 foot 2".

I cannot recall what criminal cases were involved or who her monotanously-dressed colleagues were. But I do remember her main rival is a german shepherd. How funny can it get when she sniffs like her rival, and gets called by her colleagues the same way you would call your dog's name.

Tabe Mikako is the only actress I have seen play a detective who solves cases by sniffing things like a dog - while still remaining cute... There isn't much more that can be said really; there is nothing else that really stands out in this drama, it's certainly not a stand out crime drama, and it's not even particularly good as a comedy, but at the same time there is also nothing done wrong. It is a stand out light hearted, cute drama. Nothing that you will remember years later, but simple fun while you watch.

What I liked best were the characters. They definitely were great on their own, which was why I actually liked the low-budget pre-special special so very much! They defeinitely have some lovely runnign gags and I liked the whole metadrama stuff. As for the cases and the whole sniffing - well... not so much. But then I'm not a police/ detective genre fan anyway, so I liked the drama for its characters and was fine with that. :3 Funny and easygoing amusement.

I watched this only because I had a lot of time at hand this season because of a broken foot. Ironically enough Deka Wanko also injures her foot in an early episode, so I could a actually identify myself with this silly show. Tabe Mikako's features are a bit too strong to be really cute but that added another a layer of irony for me and her costumes are fun to watch.

Going in thought it would be a zany and silly series but for the most part wasn't, actually it's a fairly solid police drama and a good one at that. No real big stars but really an A list of B-stars who all did a good job, quite an enjoyable watch.

This got tedious real soon, Sano Shiro and Sawamura Ikki are wasted in this.

Has many funny moments though the sniffing gets old after awhile.
