Reviews from JDORAMA.com

1.  A comedy from start to finish [Rating: 9/10]
Kyoko was excellent in this drama, she played the role so well. I was totally into her super rich kid character and her innocence despite being in a field where things are anything but innocent. It's a laugh to see her solve the crimes that her other (male) colleagues, several years her senior, couldn't. I liked how those guys totally put her down as just some rich girl that has absolutely no sense as a police officer while at the same time they were no better. The humor is concentrated on Kyoko's character; how someone like her could become a cop and her way of solving the crimes is just hilarious.
Aside from superb acting from everyone, the story is quite interesting too. It's a whodunnit type of detective story that keeps you guessing but with a comedic twist throughout. This drama based its humor on Kyoko's character and never strayed from that. They didn't try to make it touching or deep; they focused on being humorous and it certainly was!

2.  they should replace the lead actress [Rating: 8/10]
Basically the drama is good but too bad..Fukakyon is annoying. She cannot act..(I'm just being objective here). I don't hate her nor do I like her.
It's a good thing that she was cast alongside with good actors and that save the dorama for being a failure

3.  Do you like Fukada Kyoko? [Rating: 4/10]
Fukada Kyoko plays the granddaughter of an ancient millionaire who apparently did awful things in the past to obtain his money. Now he wants to repent by having his untouched-by-evil granddaughter use up all his money in the cause of good. She's picked policing as her profession, and grandfather used his connections to install her in a police section that very much doesn't want her. Each story plays out with a criminal on a crime spree and the police are helpless. During the panicked meetings they flounder around for a plan until she raises her hand and politely says, "If you could allow me for just a moment…" She then suggests the most flagrant, money-wasting scheme anyone has heard of. The chief of police always along with her suggestion. The scheme doesn't always work, but Fukada always catches the criminal in the end.

This is my first drama in which Fukada Kyoko appears, but I'm willing to bet that this is the character she always plays -- a completely clueless but nice and enthusiastic dimwit. Okay, she did a competent job playing it, but I can understand why people would hate her performance. Every line she reads is played exactly the same.

The supporting actors just chew up the scenery. There's not a line that is not overacted in some way. I'm sure it was done on purpose, but it's darned annoying.

I can't say that I absolutely hated this drama, but it was a tough slog for me. There were charming aspects (I loved the opening credits for some reason among some other repeated devices), however, I don't think I ever want to see it again. I love comedy, but usually the comedies I like say something about the world -- they have a slightly subversive edge. This said less about the world than your standard Bugs Bunny cartoon.

I'm assuming that if you're a fan of Fukada Kyoko comedies...or maybe if you liked the kind of humor you find in Taihou Shichauzo, then you may like this. If you like anything more sophisticated, skip it.

Pretty bad.

4.  Interesting [Rating: 8/10]
I like it because it's funny. Kyoko always solved the cases with her grandpa's money and she's clever to find the real bad guys. However, no love story in this drama and the ending just so-so means there is no perfect ending, hope they will make the sequel because it's interesting to see a girl worked in the world that dominated by men.
