SynopsisAt first glance Ryuzaki Ikuo, a detective in the Shinjuku Police Department's 2nd detective unit, & Danno Tatsuya, a high ranking member of the Matsuo Yakuza clan have nothing in common. However they both are working themselves up the ladder in their respective careers for one reason which deals with a murder case that happened 15 years earlier of which both men were witnesses to.
I went into this series having no idea what I was getting into... let me tell you what a surprise I got.
The bulk of the story is about 2 people, Ikuo Ryuzaki and Danno Tatsuya which 15 years ago they saw their precious teacher killed, but to add to that a certain detective with a golden watch (you just hope it's a got to be a Rolex) covered the whole thing up.
So what do you normally do in a situation like this, that's right Ikuo joins the police force to become a detective while Danno joins the Yakuza. Sounds similar to "The Departed" which ripped off "Infernal Affairs", but with a twist.
Now the beauty about this is that both Ikuo and Danno work together with their main goal to find out who the detective is with the golden watch. You can bet that if one can't get the information that's needed for a case, then the other can easily acquire it.
The series may start out with this bumbling detective Ikuo but once you see his true colours and the relationship he has with Danno, that's where the series shines. The series has it funny moments to lighten the mood when needed but it can be quite serious too, since you know Ikuo is dealing with criminals and murders.
The art work is fantastic with a more humane look then the over the top anime designs out there. It's certainly not the best out there but certainly pile drivers most series out there.
Now the series is still on-going and there are currently 28 chapters that have been translated as I write this review. The story has really picked up since we've had a good look into Danno's past in the latest arc.
My final score is 8/10, an interesting look into a mostly corrupt police system. It mainly focuses on the main characters and not much about the world itself, still early days and the story certainly looks like it will develop more as it goes. read more
