Daisuke Kanbe, a man of extraordinary wealth, is assigned to the Modern Crime Prevention Headquarters as a detective. It is there that he gets partnered with Haru Katou, a humane detective who values justice above all. The two are polar opposites, and their morals clash time and time again. Haru despises Daisuke for using monetary wealth to solve cases, as he believes that money isn't everything. The two will have to combine their efforts, however, to solve the mysteries that are coming their way.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Based on Yasutaka Tsutsui's novel, Fugou Keiji. The live action TV drama by Kyouko Fukada aired in 2006 with two seasons.

Just came off finishing this series and DAMN IT WAS GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Honestly this series was such a unique experience to watch and I loved it from start to finish. The series starts off episodic with the MCs solving individual crimes to help smooth us into the story then it gets to the main plotline later on. The immediate appeal is Daisuke and the whole theme of Balance Unlimited. I never get sick of seeing him throw around money to solve his problems with that smug smile that makes it hard to hate the guy.

Matter of fact Daisuke is now one of my top 3 favourite ...

Mixed Feelings
This anime had so much potential from first episodes. The whole idea of a millionaire detective pairing up with a detective, who doesn't like justice being made through money was really fresh to me, but unfortunately the story was rushed and nothing interesting came at the end. I was expecting more character development and engaging fight scenes, but they also were rushed, 11 episodes were clearly not enough to present an interesting plot to the viewers, because 2 or 3 episodes were filler type and the rest didn't succeed in telling the main story right.
There were things that I liked - like the opening ...

its was disappointing. The story was very intriguing at first because you get two people who have totally different values put together to work. But then the show just focused on this one case and you dont really get to see the two main characters dynamic with each other and it got really boring.

Amazing opening and ending song though. Also mamo-chan voiced Katou which was great.\

overall, I wished the anime focused more on the interactions of the two characters and how they work together. maybe the anime was for the novel readers but it wasn't what I thought it would like.
