1. Kindaichi series is the best dorama i have ever wa [Rating: 10/10]
Kindaichi series is great and fun to watch. I simply love Rie Tomosaka with Tsuyoshi Domoto as Miyuki and Kindaichi. The two of them have great chemistry and were cute in the show. This dorama have both serious and playful scenes. Everytime a story ends kindaichi will be back in school with miyuki, saki and makabe. They juz convinced me tat they are really friends and students from that high school. The murder files make u interested to watched from the beginning to the end to find out who the real murderer is. I can watch Kindaichi over and over again and i am still trying to find the VCD of Kindaichi 2. This dorama is awesome and the plot, the cast everything is superb. I must say tat this is the best dorama i have ever seen! Recommended to all!

2. 10? of course!! [Rating: 10/10]
Kindaichi 1 & 2 are the BEST!!!

this is the drama that got me into jdorama watching. before this, i used to think that jdoramas are all very boring, draggy and slow! but now im a crazy j-fan!

i have the Kindaichi selection vcd, and i already 'ordered' 1 & 2 after i cant find them in my country. i am still watching the series until this day! i read the manga and collected them all, watch the cartoon, and the movie, i even know how to sing the theme song without lyrics. plus i even can 'act out' the story by script for some of the episodes.

so now, think of someone kindaichi-crazier than me! no one?!

3. The best drama of Kindaichi [Rating: 10/10]
Looks like Young Kindaichi on Matsumoto Jun can't compete with Kindaici tsuyoshi. haha..Dohmoto Tsuyoshi make it 100% better than new Kindaichi. And I think no one can't replace him as Kindaici. Same as Tomosaka Rie as Miyuki. Before I watch this drama, my friends say that "no other couple can replace this Kindaichi and Miyuki" and now I totally agree with her. Suzuki Anne and Matsumoto Jun is good too, but I don't think theirchemistry is better as Rie and Tsuyoshi.

4. The Best Japanese series I have watched! [Rating: 10/10]
This is my first Japanese series and it is definitely the best! Recommended to everyone. The plot and storyline is very good. Each episode has a mystery and it is solved at the very end. Sometimes the mystery is split into two episodes. It's so good because you never know who the killer is! It leaves you watching it from the start to the end and once you start you get addicted to it!

5. This actually was my second dorama I've ever watch [Rating: 10/10]
This was one of my favourites, the cases were smart and the acting was amazing. Dohmoto Tsuyoshi acting was great, but at times seems like a know it all. But that has to do with the character that he is portraying. It's true what some member say, after watching this you want to watch it again and again.

I just love this show, i watch it over and over and over again and never seem to get sick of it. The cases are very interesting and Tsuyoshi and Rie really acts well in it. If you want to watch a drama with suspence and to have a good laugh, then don't miss this.

An excellent piece of work. As a non-reader of the Kindaichi manga series, I was immediately hooked to the series due to the mood of the episodes. Each episode is pretty grim and dark (except for the constant bickering between Kindaichi and Miyuki which lightens up the mood). Often, you would want to get involved in the investigations and solve the cases yourself. The only reason why I couldn't rate it a 10 was that I felt that each case should have consisted of more episodes to add more detail to the investigations. Highly recommended.
2. Comments by DDT [Rating: 10/10]
Part two got me hooked so I went and hunted down part 1 and was lucky to find it. Title theme is a great tune.

Comments are the same as part 2:

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. Highly recommended.
3. Comments by princess [Rating: 8/10]
This is the most orginal version of Kindaichi, which makes it good and interesting as it's the FIRST Kindaichi drama.
I thought it was a good drama overall but there were some bits that I COMPLETELY freaked out. I think there's an episode where you can see Yosuke Kobuzka when he was young in it. LOL
For sometime, I thought I was watching a scary drama because some cases where just.. WOAH! o____O
But I recommend you to watch it if you like detective stuff. It's all fun. =)
4. Comments by nagaioyasumi [Rating: 9/10]
Wah! Excellent! Tsu-chan looked so kawaii, I'm beginning to understand why he has so many fans. Each case was fresh and suspenseful, the twists and turns a bundle of surprise. Tsu was very convincing as the young Hajime, I don't think anyone could dispute that he was absolutely perfect for the role: I guess that means Jun has a lot to live up to in Kindaichi2 ne?! Hehe~ no worries, I'm still looking forward to watching Jun's sequel.
5. Comments by FierceStriker [Rating: 8/10]
Even though the mysteries could be predictable (just think of the least likely person at the beginning of the movie, or the nicest one), the story line is setup nicely and all the actors are great. Although the policeman is a bit strange looking... This original Kindaichi series is definitely better than the new Kindaichi 3, the original Kindaichi himself is the best too, what were they thinking with the casting of the new one?
6. Comments by tsuyoshi7nhwi [Rating: 10/10]
Sorry, I'm biased--I LOVED the Kindaichi manga, so, naturally, I loved the show. I think this series, with Doumoto Tsuyoshi of KinKi Kids, is way better than the version with the guy from Arashi. Sorry, no one can play goofy and cool quite as well as Tsuyoshi! Plus, the mysteries were right out of the manga, so I could relate to them (unfortunately, knowing the story beforehand also ruined some of the endings).
7. Comments by marzyu [Rating: 7/10]
Tsuyoshi looked realli young in this one but, still cute *^^* This drama is a mix of mystery and love at da same time! Rie didn't know how to confess her love for him and when she getz jealous when he'z around other girlz, it'z soooooo cute! I think the second one is better tho . . . I think this is becuz since they are older. They actually look right to date . . . They were too young in this one *sigh*
8. Comments by rikastar [Rating: 9/10]
I love whodunnit shows like this... in fact after watching this I went to read all the manga volumes I could get my hands on. The stories are really strong so you can't go wrong. Tsuyoshi suits the role of Kindaichi perfectly too. And the classic lines of Kindaichi... so corny but fun to say along with.
9. Comments by Jessicasoon [Rating: 7/10]
it's good! i like mysteries. but i must say i really prefer part 3. their stories are more wide spreaded. this is a little limited with the same type of stuff happening all the time. and also. they keep using horribly ugly masks. the pattern's pretty much the same, horrible mask, few ppl killed.
10. Comments by Wisteria [Rating: 10/10]
Ah, my very first J-dorama, totally fell in love with it, and I found Kinki Kids from this. 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.
11. Comments by Eyrien* [Rating: 7/10]
Classic detective fun. I like watching this when I only am interesting in watching something short. It's very easy not to watch this whole series at one time. Dohmoto Tsuyoshi does a good job of portraying the at school typical hormonal boy/detective genius.
12. Comments by ryce [Rating: 10/10]
This show & Trick are my all-time favourite mystery jdoramas. The mysteries are thought-provoking and Tsuyoshi is quite comical at times... and everytime he solves a mystery... he has to repeat that phrase about his grandfather's reputation.
13. Comments by Hoshi [Rating: 10/10]
Frankly speaking, I watched Part 3 before Parts 1 and 2... but I must say, even though this series is really old already, I like this better than Part 3!! Domoto Tsuyoshi really bring the character of Hajime through very well. Good stuff. :)
14. Comments by yolande [Rating: 5/10]
tsuyoshi is adorable in this dorama. in fact, he is so adorable that i watched the dorama just to watch him. but a little empty plot wise. and it gets a little dry after a while. the last story is the only one i thought was really good.
15. Comments by Helena [Rating: 8/10]
i like this series, very entertaining, although e leading actress doesnt really know how 2 act, bt e story is quite gd, nt so complicated also nt 2 silly, as 4 me e most important thing is e superb performance fr e leading actor
16. Comments by jdfan [Rating: 8/10]
This is an aged dorama I recently watched. It was a good detective type drama with multiple short stories involved the young Dohmoto and Tomosaka. When compared with their latest works, the leads are much better now!
17. Comments by jica [Rating: 10/10]
Sooooo good. No handsome Kindaichi, but he's good (don't remember his name). I liked the cases, cause they made you scared and you get this dark feeling... A must see! The best Kindaichi drama of them all.

Tsuyoshi's perfect as Hajime-chan ... i couldn't find anyone to be so perfect in that character ! Tsuyoshi's [Hajime-chan] & Tomosaka Rie's [Miyuki] is perfect .. heez .. great drama !
19. Comments by db9paka [Rating: 3/10]
I know a lot of people liked this show, but it just didn't make sense to me that Tsuyoshi is even 'big' in Japan. Kinki Kids is even worse. No offence but I didn't really like this show.

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. =)

I've always like mystery solving....I liked the way how every mystery was solved at the end....although some was very unexpected and surprising...it was a good watch

Tsuyoshi is THE perfect Kindaichi Hajime. I've seen some of the anime and watched Kame and Matsujun's portrayals before Tsuyoshi's, so there's no doubt in my mind.

I love it I love it I love it!!! My Kindaichi comes to life. Never got tired of 'the killer is among us' line that he spouted out at nearly every episode.

Based on the manga series. A great show filled with suspense. Comical at moments, and also the unfolding teenage romance between Kindaichi and Miyuki.

Kindaichi took Japan by storm.. there was meant only to be one series. But due to the overwhelming response, not only the second part was filmed but also various other movies and aside, bangumi (variety shows). This alone goes to show why it definitely deserves a vote - so much so that Singaporeans who don't know Doumoto Tsuyoshi by his name, term him casually as 'Hajime-chan' or 'Kindaichi' (Jin1 Tian2 Yi1).
2. Wisteria
Ah, my very first J-dorama, totally fell in love with it, and I found Kinki Kids from this. 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.
