While Etsuro Kawamura (Oshio Manabu) is a rookie cop that still in training for 3 moths and also type of cop that does everything by the book. Even with that he holds higher position than Shinnosuke even while him still in traning.

For unknown reason Kawamura chose Shinnosuke to his partner while he train in 3 moth. Shinnosuke is forced to this after he makes cop operation to catch a entire gang failed or he will be fired if he refuse it. Can this two people with complete different personality become parter?

MY Comment: I like this drama because it likes American type of cop drama or movie. And also because I am fan of Sorimachi Takashi.But this comedy type police good because I really don like intense drama. Fan of Sorimachi Takashi have to watch this…
