Official Website

From 10.00 p.m., Fridays, 11 September – 16 October 2020


Kanzaki Ryuichi is a career detective who has been assigned to Ikebukuro Police Precinct’s Violent Crimes Unit. On his first day at work, Kuroki Kenji, the senior detective who is supposed to be his partner, is absent without notice. Kanzaki is ordered by Suenaga Koichi, who heads the unit, to track Kuroki down. Kanzaki finds Kuroki’s bloodstained notebook next to tyre marks that indicate someone had slammed on the car brakes. In addition, he gets a phone call from Kuroki who is concealing his whereabouts from the Violent Crimes Unit. Kuroki says he got caught up in a kidnapping … … Kanzaki is compassionate and earnest but gets too meddlesome sometimes. His strong belief that people have more good qualities than bad ones becomes an advantage in overcoming difficulties. On the other hand, Kuroki tops the precinct’s arrest rate because he has the best instincts and perceptiveness. His suspicion of people is his weapon in deciphering cases. There are times when he takes an unprecedented approach in the investigation that breaks the rules, and also gets Kanzaki involved in dangerous investigations. The two of them tackle the brutal crimes that occur in the streets of Ikebukuro together. But they have completely opposite personalities, values and investigation methods which leads to conflicts each time there is an investigation. However, they have a secret. They are step brothers with different mothers.
