Kimi Hannin Janai yo ne? キミ犯人じゃないよね? Ep2 Screen Shots

Aren't You a Criminal?
Morita Sakura played by Kanjiya Shihori (Hana Yori Dango 2, H2) begins the episode telling the viewer a little about herself, a neophyte novelist and job hopper she goes on to relate her encounter with the rookie detective Udagawa Kyosei played by Kaname Jun (Himitsu no Hanazono, Tantei Gakuen Q) in the previous episode and her involvement in the case. Then this week’s case is revealed as a restaurant owner is stabbed in the kitchen, the killer carefully spreading pasta over the body. Then the scene shifts to Shihori’s editor’s office. Her editor isn’t happy with the latest manuscript, Shihori’s written a mystery and nobody dies, she tells her she wanted to write a mystery where no one dies. But the editor tells her if you don’t kill at least three people there is no way the story will be sold, then holds the story over the waste basket asking Shihori what to do. At the murder scene a cop holds back spectators as Udagawa jumps a chain but winds up tripping and lands on his back. The school girls, and housewives who’d thought he was so cool, begin laughing, while the beat cop comes over and salutes and thanks him for the hard work. Inside the senior detectives observe the scene and think that it might have occurred after a fight and possibly a robbery.

I’ve been watching Kaname Jun recently in Kamen Rider Agito, where he also plays a cop and he has the same friendly, clumsy nature that’s just is made for comedy. There’s some cheap physical comedy like him tripping and the crowd laughing but there’s also stuff like when he slides into the crime scene strikes a pose and declares he’d arrived and they way he falls in love in each episode. Shihori is another great source of laughs and while she not shown working as many jobs as the last episode, she still manages to hit the jobs crucial to the case. I just loved her expression when her editor turned her back her when discussing her latest story. I’d recommended this to fans of comedic mysteries like Kuitan or Mop Girl.

I enjoyed watching both of the seasons of Kuitan and if it's similar, i believe i'll enjoy this just as much. I'll comment after i watch it.
