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.

There were things that I liked - like the opening ...

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

This is my first review on MyAnimeList, and what a good choice for my first show to review. I am here to review The Millionaire Detective- Balance: UNLIMITED: This show felt like a breath of fresh air. This show had me looking forward to a new episode every single week. Let's get into specifics.

Story: 7
The story of this show is pretty good. Some might say it's nothing to write home about but I believe that the story was good for the narrative the creators wanted to pull off. The first few episodes are sort of in an episodic nature, with just a case-of-the-day sort of ...
