Kohei Kuryu, played by Kimura Takuya, is a former juvenile delinquent that drops out of junior high and goes on to earn a high school equivalency diploma. After passing the law board exams, Kuryu becomes a prosecutor. Not your typical prosecutor, which is quickly seen through the clothes that he wears, Kuryu possesses quick instincts and a kind of cleverness that only someone raised on the streets could have.

Matsu Takako plays the role of public prosecutor Maiko Amamiya. The shrewd Amamiya, who has her eyes set on passing the exam to become a deputy prosecutor, tries her best to be noticed by her boss. Kuryu, on the other hand, after earning a reputation for doing top-notch work is transferred to Amamiya’s division, and finally opens his eyes to the possibility of promotion. Unfortunately, his unprecedented work behavior abruptly brings things to a halt.

Although earning a reputation as a bad apple, the influence from Kuryu’s strong pursuit of justice slowly begins to change things around him. This drama is filled with it all; love, laughs and lots of emotion. -Fuji TV
A quirky and often outrageous comedy. Besides the various criminal cases Kuryu solves without fear or fervor, this drama is also memorable for Kuryu’s addiction to the cheesy mail-order program “Luigi’s Online Shop” and its products, such as different models of exercise equipment. After work, the prosecutors frequent a bar called “St. George’s Tavern”; its laconic owner is seemingly able to produce any type of food or drink ordered, with a cheery “Aru yo!” (”yes, we have it”)
