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.

Underrated Gem

Fugou Keiji: Balance:Unlimited is an entertaining Anime, the writing is really good and the story narration is on point, there are a lot of funny moments in this Anime which never fail to make you smile, then it immediately changes the mood into a more serious tone when it needs to. So the balance between comedy and seriousness is perfect.

The art style is ok and it looks good, the music is also good (including OP & ED). Also the characters are likeable.

If you're a fan of mystery genre like me, and want some comedy added to it, watch it, it's definitely worth it! not ...

The policeman by passion Katou was demoted due to an incident, but he catches the eye of a super-rich man who just spontaneously felt like fighting crime! So while Kato tries to knock some common sense into him, his new partner Kambe investigates as he pleases and perhaps blows up a bridge or two, because after all he has an infinite amount of money in his account...

I think you can tell from this brief description that the anime has its own charm, which ...

The only appeals I found in this anime are watching someone spend money without thinking about the cost and the futuristic gadgets.

My first impression was "It is weird for Husk to be able to do illegal stuff with money" (especially as it happens a lot) but I gave a chance to the anime and after all, why not.

Unfortunately, there is little to no character development for the main and supporting characters so it's difficult to follow the story, which is okay at first. The two main characters get along after a skip, but it's hard to believe they made up so quickly in one travel ...
