Both dramas tell a story of a revenge for a beloved one's deaths. Both the police and a criminal underground are involved too. Also, in both Ikuta Touma plays one of the main characters.
Both are crime solving dramas with an intriguing story, featuring well renowned actors.

Interesting story.
The ending is quite depressing when you realize that these are two kids that have never really grown up after they had their mother figure killed, and that eventually they would follow her death in suicide. Even when the ending scene shows them happily eating at the table, it's depressing to think that they never survived past that trauma.

I'm surprised there were people who found it slow in the beginning, for me I LOVED the first episode. I watched it over and over several times XD I even started reading the manga cos I just couldn't wait for the next episode... that was a mistake. The manga was different and I didn't love it but all I could think of was the few things it did do better than the drama and I lost interest in the drama part way through. But now two years later I came back to finish it and to me the first episode was probably still the highlight, it went a bit downhill after. The ending was fitting but it wasn't the ending I wanted to see. Oh well it was still OK.

It gets good too late.

(Ps: I would love a spin-off with the three "old" detectives)

Great story and super entertaining, but WOW the overacting is a thing to behold (especially Chouno, I mean, DUDE, come on, really?). Still, when all's said and done, I don't regret a single minute of the time spent watching this drama. It was a lot of fun, and definitely a must-see for any Ikuta Toma or Oguri Shun fans.

I started watching this bec of my HanaKimi OTP.... Toma and Shun Oguri.... but I got bored because the show seems to be all over the place (for me) so I stopped. Then after few months I started watching again...oh boy I'm glad I did! it has a really good story. sad ending but that ending fits better than a happy one.

@aquariia is right. it was good but not masterpiece type. if only they made it more engaging for the viewers.

I find it a bit of slow at the beginning but it's getting better and better. Solid story with satisfying ending. Great characters and overall very good drama but not a masterpiece.

Oguri Shun and Ikuta Toma can't really get away from the "Mizuki" character huh /lol/

But jokes aside, this is one bloody amazing jdrama.
I'm glad it ended the way it did, the resolve at the end was just... wow.

5/5 from me, jst bc it hit some sorta discord upon completion.
IMO the characterisation of both Toma and Shun's characters were brilliant and like others say, it did contain quite a solid and satisfactory story.
