Watched it for Morita, actually. It's quite childish and if you're into hardcore mystery, this isn't something you want to jump into. But it was good while it lasted.

The first episode had me crying of laughter after 10 minutes into it. Higashiyama-san is just that awesome! ^^

Not a huge story developement, but a nice series to watch and relax! Don`t miss it if you feel for light drama. ^^

Lots of very funny parts.. references to Kindaichi shounen (laughs). Lots of very yummy looking food! ^^ The characters are quite fun!

Glad there is going to be a second season of this too! The cast were well chosen for this drama and it turned out to be the gem of last winter.

After seeing ep 1, I am a li' dissapointed. The main casts ain't that great - as though something is missing. The plot is nice though, really emotionally and all, and who can resist all those delicious food.

This was one of the most pointless dramas I've ever seen. In fact, it bordered on being agonizingly slow. The story revolves around a detective agency called the Holmes Detective Agency. The main character is Kuitan - a detective who loves food and craves it almost every second of the day. There are three other people who work there who also help him solve cases. Usually the cases that come in to his company, are ones where food is involved. Kuitan solves these mysteries by (guess how?) eating more and more food.

This drama was really episodic and there wasn't anything to persuade me to continue watching after episode 6. I actually would have stopped earlier if not for the slight possibility that this show could improve. The actors and actresses in this drama were subpar, in fact even terrible especially the main lead. The only highlight that I found was the food in the drama. It looked so good, actually that could have been another negative - it's not a good drama to watch on an empty stomach. The cases in this series were overly simplistic and uninteresting. Anyway, I don't think I'd recommend this drama to anyone.

this drama is FULL of food !! Kuitan (Higashiyama Noriyuki) has all the interesting way he solve his case every episode ~ all the casts were great ~ Kyono Kotomi is great as "Momo-chan" .. the fierce character which is pretty different from her usual quiet-type of characters she acted .. lolx ~ enjoyed watching the whole drama !!!

Interesting in mixing food and crime investigation. More like a comedy. Great characters and chemistry inbetween.

Pretty good show with a mix of comedy and detective work (although it's no psychological thriller). The best part is seeing all that delicious food! I really like Higashiyama Noriyuki and Kyono Kotomi's characters! Haven't completed the series yet, but I look forward to watching more!
