The typical Kochikame plot involves Ryou-san coming up with a money-making scheme by inventing a new gadget or capitalizing on a fad, achieving great success, calling on Nakagawa's help as things turn sour, and finally losing it all as the fad runs out of steam or out of control. While the plots are gag-driven, much of the humor comes from the juxtaposition of mundane characters with the bizarrely incongruous (Nakagawa's wealth, Maria's appeal, everyone's lack of actual police work), most of which is never explained or rationalized in the slightest.

Kochikame had been the longest-running manga in the history of Weekly Shounen Jump and won the Guinness World Record for "Most volumes published for a single manga series".

The series had two chapters published in English in the educational publication Mangajin's issues #55 and #56 (May to June 1996).

If you can read this in Japanese and LOL, then you are Japanese!

What you find in this series, is almost every aspect of traditional and modern Japanese life depicted in one small police box next to a park in Tokyo.

Actually its a hell of a lot more then that, with everything from simple Japanese "つっこみ” and "ぼけ” to complex workings of Japanese society at both a political and social level.

The cast is huge but grounded on 3 main characters: Yrotsu, Reiko, and Nakagawa.

And really, anything more on this CLASSIC from a beginner reviewer like me would just be letters, so FIND IT AND read more
