Season 2! Taro Hanazawa has been on the police force for 20 years, but while all of the other recruits in his class have been promoted, Taro still works at the neighborhood koban (community police station). It’s not because he’s a bad cop; on the contrary, Taro is an excellent police officer. But Taro weighs nearly 250 pounds, which makes it difficult for him to chase down criminals, and even harder for his superiors to take him seriously. That is…until Chief of Investigation First Division Reiko Nishikori observes Taro’s keen police skills in action and taps him to join her squad. Will Taro be able to keep up with the other detectives? Or will his investigative skills leave the other detectives chasing after him?
