Gourmet Detective Goro Akechi
美食探偵 明智五郎

Gourmet Detective Goro Akechi
If you were to die tomorrow, what would be your last meal? A handsome gourmet detective gets to the heart of a serial killer in this poisonously romantic suspense drama!

Detective Goro Akechi has a passion for fine dining. Good-looking but incredibly quirky, he solves food-related crimes by using, well, food. He treats Ichigo Kobayashi like his assistant and drags her into all sorts of cases, even though she's perfectly happy just running her food truck.

The thorn in Goro's flesh is the beautiful and self-proclaimed "Maria Magdalena," who upon meeting him transforms into a killer. Their relationship is at the same time "detective vs murderer" and "opposites attract."

Indulge your senses in savvy investigations, dangerous romance, and exquisite cuisine in this ultimate gourmet entertainment!
