Kurumi Ayaki is a recently-retired police officer with a record of excellence on the force and the guts and guile to back it up. In order to earn some extra money for her upcoming wedding, she has to return to the force ... and is 'rewarded' with an assignment to an elite unit whose charge it is to solve those crimes that have been classified as unsolvable.

Partnered with a mysterious young genius who is unable to feel emotions, or even to leave his room, she acts as his eyes and ears to piece together clues even as her own personal life falls apart around her.

Remote was a very good read but the ending leaves one wondering about what happen and what could happen.Some enjoy the whole come up with your own ending but at times i just want them to tell me. Never the less just like every other good manga out there that has a good story line but at some point the author give up or something and comes up with a bad ending. But I still recommend this manga to any one who likes the whole police cases and romance put together. And it was fun trying to put the pieces together for some cases. I read more

In the beginning, the premise sounds pretty solid. For the most part, the mysteries are engaging. I always wanted to find out the who in the who-dun-it, and found that I could follow most of the clues presented. I also liked that it followed the story of a woman about to be married rather than a teen looking for a boyfriend, which was a refreshing change of pace.

I rated this so low however because the characters detract so much from it. They all seem one note: Kouzaburo is brooding and angry, the fiancee is a dolt with nookie on the mind, the police officers are read more

Oh my god the art is sooo bad. Like, seriously. The amount of fanservice pointlessly shoehorned into this is incredibly laughable as well. The first case was fairly entertaining, and most of the ones after that were at least fun to read, but the clear problem with this series' approach to whodunit is that the author doesn't give the reader the tools to solve the mystery. Instead we have to rely on the male lead (you know, the low-rent "L" character) to feed us clues. Except for most of it he keeps his cards close to his chest.

I dunno. I say just go read Death read more

I did not like this manga, but I will tell you what its about. A shut in genius detective who never leaves his room, and needs someone to work the ground following his instructions over the cellphone. It doesn't matter how incompetent a police officer the person is either as they promote a meter maid who is completely useless as a cop.

The ecchi element is nice though. Lots of fan service and since its a seinen there is nudity and people don't just get cut, they lose arms and get torn in half sometimes.

I tried, I read more
