Comments by gaijinmark [Rating: 7/10] Greedy people trying to cheat someone out of their rightful inheritance. But "Tantei" plays it partially for laughs so you know Ichika is never really going to come to harm. The payoff is at the end of every episode seeing how Chikumagawa foils the plot. In a way, every episode is the same. Good acting, but predictable. For a serious version of the same scenario watch "Nyokei Kazoku".
