Kinda funny but it had rather annoying main character, cases were not so good and Fukada still can't act as expected. Still giving it 4/5 though so I guess it had some good things going :x...

I like this drama so much. It's funny, it has great actors. Wonderful. Kyoko Fukada is much better than in other drama. She perfectly fits in the role of the loving houswife. ^3^

The themesong performed by Perfume is also great. it fits as well.

It's so funny that
Fumi-kun didn't recognize his own wife. Well, he seems a little bit clumsy in this matter (;¬_¬)

Great thing

This drama is like a piece of candy: it looks good, it tastes good, you can't really stop at just one piece...but you regret consuming all those extra calories when it's over.

Although the cast is amazing and the plot was moderately entertaining, I don't feel like I came away from this drama with anything. In fact, it is mostly forgettable at best. And although I wouldn't call Sengyoushufu Tantei a "bad" drama I can't necessarily deem it "good" either; hence the "average" rating. What it all boils down to is that I sorta want all the time I spend watching it back. Please?

I finally understand him somehow.
"Gas station" memory was cute, rated higher than "wedding" lol.

@hidde- I started to like Fumi-kun after this one :)

Fumi-kun is so blind -___- But it's good that he broke up with his boss.

Yes, the preview of the next one is full of surprises.
Serina will reveal herself in front of the boss :O And Jinnai will get a kiss :O
Since Serina looks so sad in the preview, it seems that something bad will happen to Fumi, maybe she can't save him?

Yes, according to japanese wiki, it'll only get 9 episodes. Two episodes left! ;)

He still wasn't able to recognize her (but he looked at her as if he suspected something) ;(.
At least he decide to broke up with the boss.

Will Serine pull him off from all that mess?
Looks like she is going to save him.

Did you watched what was going to happen in the next one?

Was the number of episodes reduced from 12 to 9?
