Komikado Kensuke is a lawyer, but not your stereotypical one. He's obstinate and possesses a wicked tongue. He's sarcastic, moody, and a spendthrift. Furthermore, he's exceedingly fond of money, fame, and women, which naturally has earned him a terrible reputation within legal circles. Despite this, he's never lost a lawsuit yet. Winning is everything to him and he possesses a genius talent for bargaining tactics which lead him to victory in every case. Any greenhorn by the book lawyer, he looks upon with disdain. Under his motto, 'Justice lies in the victor', he will use any means he chooses to achieve exactly that.

Both feature lawyers and court sessions in a comical way.
Both center around a skilled yet rather rude person who faces intellectual challenges and uncovers mysteries together with a female who works under him.

pretty good, but the last episode felt a bit had funny moments though and the characters were well made and executed

Really enjoyed this drama! It has been a long time since a drama got me so hooked on continue watching and made me laugh so much. If you enjoy law dramas and some investigation work together with comedy, this is something for you. Some characters were really annoying (for example the guys of the other law office that were involved in every case they had) and some cases were not that interesting, but over all I enjoyed it a lot. Can't wait to watch the second season!
(By the way, as a big fan of the Ace Attorney video games, I absolutely loved how this drama somehow reminded me on the games as some cases and characters were so crazy that I sometimes felt like I would watch a drama of Ace Attorney^^ Really loved that! And especially the truth behind Saori was quite... over the top ;))

Didn't really enjoy it, pretty bored, ending is just -___- not funny at all. Maybe because i'm not interested in law drama?

Btw, Komikado sensei somehow remind me of Moriyama sensei from doctors.

I would give 5* for Masato's acting. The drama itself was good. But the last ep especially the last part was rushed- just a hot mess.

I watched this for Taguchi. His role is pretty minor. He gets at least 3-5 minutes of screen time; from episode 4 - 11, it buoys around 5-10 minutes.

This drama's very episodic and predictable; has barely any kind of character development. It didn't keep me engaged and anticipating the next episode. However, this drama was fun. The cases were sometimes boring but made interesting with comedic character interaction. The cast was well chosen, even Aragaki. My only regret is we don't find out much about Hattori-san!
