ケイ × ヤクーあぶない相棒ー
Three years ago, a video of a female public security investigator being kidnapped and assaulted was uploaded to the internet. Her name was Rion Nakaba, and the video caused a huge uproar- but it was instantly deleted. This incident was called the “Joker Case” within the Public Safety Bureau, and for some reason, the investigation was quickly terminated and Rion was deemed to have been killed in the line of duty.
Ichiro Kunishita, a junior public safety investigator who looked up to Rion, was not satisfied with this decision, and continues to advocate for the “Joker Case” to be reinvestigated. However, his boss Chief Taguchi orders him to take on a completely different case. Ichiro is requested to conduct a private investigation on Shiro Hanabusa, the young leader of the Minegami Clan crime syndicate. It seems that Shiro had quickly risen through the ranks of the Minegami Clan and has become the lover of several politicians. For the investigation, Ichiro approaches Shiro at a hotel bar. Shiro is wary of Ichiro's presence and the situation is touch-and-go, but it seems Shiro thinks of Rion as a sister. In order to find Rion, Shiro says he became the leader of an organized crime syndicate, and confirms that he has been prostituting himself to politicians in order to obtain information.
Ichiro proposes they team up for Rion’s sake. They pretend to obey Chief Taguchi's orders and begin living together, posing as lovers. Using the diary left behind by Rion as a clue, they discover that before she disappeared, Rion was investigating the terrorist bombing incident that occurred 20 years prior, which also took the lives of Ichiro's parents. They discover that Taguchi was also involved in that investigation. Is Taguchi an ally, or a foe? When Ichiro questions Taguchi if he is hiding information about Rion's disappearance, Taguchi invites him to his apartment. What awaits him there is a reunion with Rion. They pretend to obey Chief Taguchi's orders and begin living together, posing as lovers.
Rion's life had been threatened throughout the investigation, and it was Chief Taguchi's ploy to claim that she had been killed in action, when in reality she had been in hiding. Though Ichiro was elated with their reunion, it was short-lived. As suspected, Rion was further investigating the terrorist incident, and she said that her life was under threat because she had uncovered the truth behind the bombing. Ichiro and Shiro join up with Rion and Taguchi to investigate the bombing. Ichiro is strongly motivated to avenge his parents. As Shiro finds out more about Ichiro's loneliness, he begins to develop a strong emotional bond with him. However, it is confirmed that that the perpetrator of the bombing is also Shiro's benefactor, and this causes him to become intensely conflicted.
To keep the incident a secret, the people suspected of being involved in it are being erased one by one. It turns out that the prime minister and other big-shot politicians are heavily involved behind the scenes, and Ichiro and Shiro find themselves in grave danger in the thick of a massive conspiracy.

Cops get schooled by robbers?!
The crime closest to our everyday life might just be theft. In the Metropolitan Police Department, it is handled by the Investigations 3rd Unit.
Creating a brand new concept within detective dramas, "Cops & Robbers" features novice police detective Tsutomu Madarame and legendary thief Kemuri Garasu (Smoky Crow) as forbidden buddies that tackle a vast array of difficult cases.
The Investigations 3rd Unit is dedicated to solving theft cases like burglary, shoplifting, and snatching. In television dramas, these crimes have been overshadowed by murders and kidnappings, which are handled by the Investigations 1st Unit. But in reality, theft accounts for over 70% of police cases and is the crime that hits closest to home for the average citizen. Because it is carried out with numerous tactics, the 3rd Unit is said to require the highest investigative skills.
Unlike "Lupin the Third" and "Cat's Eye", which are told from the thief's viewpoint, "Cops & Robbers" takes the rare approach of depicting the story though the eyes of the detectives. Released in January 2018 as a manga, its transformation into a live-action drama is unusually quick!
Each case comes to a satisfying solution and leads to an increased awareness of crimes, making this a racy detective drama that is universally entertaining, regardless of age and gender!
In the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department, there is a secret team that takes care of certain crimes that could not be handled by police official. Their duty is to investigate the tricky cases and seek the truths that cannot be dealt openly.
This is a suspenseful socially aware drama that depicts three issues, which are kidnapping, disappearance and murder in a profound manner. The common theme throughout this drama is “Revenge, if it is right or wrong”.
There are two men playing as leading principles, Muto and Kaburaki. A girl who had been so special for both of these men was killed. For Muto, the girl was his younger sister whom he loved like his daughter after the death of their parents in their youth. The other man, Kaburaki, who had been a lonely man with no family , for him, the girl was the only one he had ever loved in his life.
In the “Season 1,” it focuses on Muto who suffers conflicting feelings, wishing to make a revenge for his sister, yet chooses not to go for revenge and tries to track down the crime pledging that no such victims shall be claimed again.
In the “Season 2 “, the main character changes into Kaburaki who is getting trapped with his desire to go for revenge that goes over the line. There is also another key person, Tamaki, the commander of this special mission who is cold-blooded. He is a kind of man who would do whatever in order to break the case.
The drama develops peculiar and absorbing cases such as kidnapping and murder with the three men as main roles of the story. It depicts in-depths the question of “ Is revenge justifiable or not” through the point of totally different types of men.
Muto and Kaburaki, who are tied with deep mutual attachment, struggle, suffer, get enraged and undergo emotional turmoils with the different answers they finally found against “revenge.” Eventually, tragedy awaits them..

In actuality, Maki didn’t have the confidence to use her own image, so she had used Elly’s face as her online icon. Thus when Daniel saw Elly, he immediately jumped to the conclusion that she was the woman he longed to meet. Through the most unusual circumstances, the paths of five people become entangled as they scurry around the city of Hong Kong to reach their goals.
This is the ultimate topsy-turvy out-of-control buddy cop duo that breaks all rules and conventions! After 30 years in a coma, a hot-blooded rough-around-the-edges predatory cop suddenly awakens and begins to run the life of his digital native “herbivore” buddy. Together they shatter the lethargy that has enveloped these modern times!
It was 1985 when hotshot cop Kosuke Kyogoku, an unconventional guy whose passion helped him solve numerous cases, suffered an accident and fell into a coma as he pursued the vicious criminal Kagura.
In June of 2015, after 30 long years, Kyogoku suddenly wakes up to a world that has moved on without him. What he last knew as a 22-year-old body is now 52. Everything around him has changed, almost as if he had time-traveled. His beloved wife is remarried and living a new life with his daughter.
As fate would have it, Kyogoku is paired with Ryota Mochizuki, a timid digital geek neophyte cop with whom he will have to pursue the same old heinous criminal Kagura from 30 years ago. Although they start off like oil and water, the two eventually begin to trust each other. With their formidable teamwork, they annihilate Kagura and his crime ring, putting an end to a decades-long animosity.
An entire year has passed since their tremendous feat. Kyogoku and Ryota have continued to solve many more atrocious crimes. Ryota, who was once an "herbivore man" with no courage and confidence, has undergone a drastic transformation as a result of working with Kyogoku. Just like his buddy, Ryota is now a bold and aggressive cop.
With an investigative style that ignores all of society's rules and conventions, the two at times have caused problems. Their remarkable crime clearance rate and significant contributions to society, however, have silenced detractors.
"There's a bizarre duo of a man who always wears a varsity jacket and a slender-but-macho guy in the Central Police Department." That's the rumor spreading not only among fellow cops, but also in the underworld.
After their recent rebirth, the legendary buddy cop combo enters a new chapter. Follow them as they begin their wild ride in the fall of 2016.
