This was one of the most pointless dramas I've ever seen. In fact, it bordered on being agonizingly slow. The story revolves around a detective agency called the Holmes Detective Agency. The main character is Kuitan - a detective who loves food and craves it almost every second of the day. There are three other people who work there who also help him solve cases. Usually the cases that come in to his company, are ones where food is involved. Kuitan solves these mysteries by (guess how?) eating more and more food.
This drama was really episodic and there wasn't anything to persuade me to continue watching after episode 6. I actually would have stopped earlier if not for the slight possibility that this show could improve. The actors and actresses in this drama were subpar, in fact even terrible especially the main lead. The only highlight that I found was the food in the drama. It looked so good, actually that could have been another negative - it's not a good drama to watch on an empty stomach. The cases in this series were overly simplistic and uninteresting. Anyway, I don't think I'd recommend this drama to anyone.

The first episode had me crying of laughter after 10 minutes into it. Higashiyama-san is just that awesome! ^^
Not a huge story developement, but a nice series to watch and relax! Don`t miss it if you feel for light drama. ^^
Lots of very funny parts.. references to Kindaichi shounen (laughs). Lots of very yummy looking food! ^^ The characters are quite fun!
Glad there is going to be a second season of this too! The cast were well chosen for this drama and it turned out to be the gem of last winter.

hmmm kind of overated, too much theatrical scene, and that Gluttony detective sometimes makes me lose my appetite. I know the food in the show is looks good, but when i saw someone eat a loooooooot of them like that, makes me feels sick. Gluttony isnt like that, that character is just too much. Also Morita Go ~_~, he's pain on my eyes. Only 1 thing that saves this drama, Food ~_~.
Soundtrack : Kesshou [B'Z]: 10 (aw aw, an awesome song)

This has many of the same problems for me as Jikou Keisatsu. Maybe I just don't like these kinds of detective drama series. It's amusing for the first 4 or so episodes, but gets repetitive fast. I only made it all the way through because I'm a Morita Go fan and wanted to see more of him. Probably a pass unless you're a huge fan of one of the actors, are really into detective drama series, or have lots of time to waste

No no no! One of the most pointless drama ever made. It was impossible to finish this one. I can't believe they made a sequel. It's supposed to be a comedy but it's not funny at all, just plain stupid. Lame criminal cases, ultraboring cast & bad acting. Well, if you like Vivaldi's "Four seasons" you'll enjoy the music. But that's about it. Pathetic drama. 1-

this drama is FULL of food !! Kuitan (Higashiyama Noriyuki) has all the interesting way he solve his case every episode ~ all the casts were great ~ Kyono Kotomi is great as "Momo-chan" .. the fierce character which is pretty different from her usual quiet-type of characters she acted .. lolx ~ enjoyed watching the whole drama !!!

Kuitan is my guilty pleasure. Love food dramas and the over-the-top plots each week, and Kuitan's drama-mama flourishes and investigative methods kept me glued to the TV (or my computer) and actually made me anticipate the next episode. This drama was never boring and the Holmes Agency gang is totally quirky in their own rights.

I don't think this drama could have been any more perfect!
Superbly cast, and played with lots of fun and good-humour.
It's not often something has me laughing out loud, but Kuitan did.
I never wanted this drama to end...unfortunately, like all dramas, it had to. :-(
But the thought of another series... :-)

I've only watched the first 3 episodes so far so I can't rate it properly yet. It seems like a decent enough series it's been pretty interesting so far. Not a series I'm going to go off and rave about, but something nice and easy to sit back and watch. I love that he never stops eating XD classic!

The plot's something different from the usual detective doramas. It gets better when the story develops. When you thought all Kuitan thinks of is only food, he surprises you with his analysis of each case he & his failed detective agency gets hold of. A light and entertaining watch.

Pretty good show with a mix of comedy and detective work (although it's no psychological thriller). The best part is seeing all that delicious food! I really like Higashiyama Noriyuki and Kyono Kotomi's characters! Haven't completed the series yet, but I look forward to watching more!

I loved this dorama, althought it could be boring sometimes, and they were just focusing so much on food! It was really funny and entertaining, and I just fell in love with The Kuitan :D I tried watching season 2 but I found it a bit disappointing. Maybe I'll give it a try soon.

I love detective shows but this one was kind of lame. Lead char is quite lame the other chars are irritating but you get used to it. SHow is about a detective agency getting a new boss and this boss loves eating, also thats how he solves his crimes. (Summer 06)

Foods are delicious and the acting is good too. The problem is that its kinda dragging in the middle of the series and I cant help myself from clicking the fast forward button. Twas funny anyway especially whenever Kuitan does the swishing of his chopstick.

Very funny with this sempai of all johnnys, though the mysteries weren't too creative and some parts seemed over done. I did like the kids though, quite cute looking like Conan but being called Kindaichi (watch the animes to understand the joke.)

After seeing ep 1, I am a li' dissapointed. The main casts ain't that great - as though something is missing. The plot is nice though, really emotionally and all, and who can resist all those delicious food.

Kuitan is termed as Food Detective and Higashiyama san played the character of Kuitan with Go as his side-kick. It's watchable drama for entertainment other than that, it's more focus on the food so... ^^

What a fun detective drama that centered around food! There was an awesome bunch of characters, but my favorite was IGARASHI!!!, the bumbling sidekick of Momo-chan, the hard-as-nails female cop.

Yay Kuitan! This was a really fun and lighthearted drama. I think the first few episodes were the best. I love Kuitan's voracious appetite and funny quirks. Can't wait to see Kuitan 2.

Unique and funny story about food detective. That xiao Kindaichi makes the story more interesting. Go Morita is not bad. Watching this dorama makes me hungry from the beginning to end.
|21. ||Comments by Akiiness [Rating: 7/10]|
Watched it for Morita, actually. It's quite childish and if you're into hardcore mystery, this isn't something you want to jump into. But it was good while it lasted.

Story kind of ordinary. I loved the info about the food tho. If you're not into that, you can skip it.
I think I gained 50 pounds by just watching him eat. ^_^;

A pretty good series of episodic mysteries and a decent cast. I found myself pretty engrossed by the end but it's not something I would watch again, probably.
|24. ||Comments by K.T.Tran [Rating: 9/10]|
9/10 seems right for this drama. Food is good. Acting is good....but still odd that all the cases are food related. It could've been more exciting or so...
|25. ||Comments by Sleepingstar [Rating: 6/10]|
While it was pretty stupid, silly and lame comedy with some over the topness, I still started to actually somewhat like it as it went on. IGARASHIIII!!
|26. ||Comments by shortmei [Rating: 7/10]|
Food. I liked it despite the drama not having a lot of substance in the storyline. May be predictable, but still very enjoyable.
|27. ||Comments by MrNiceGuy [Rating: 9/10]|
Those style of movies are nice. Food detective...haha. I want to become a special food dective like this guys! Itadaikimasu!
|28. ||Comments by akitsu [Rating: 6/10]|
One can not expect action or logic challenging plots. It was very calm and slow but somewhat sweet and touching. I liked it.
|29. ||Comments by butterLiLy [Rating: 7/10]|
Never ever watched this when your tummy's empty or on diet... at least prepare some food so you could eat while watching ;P

The first episode was hilarious, but as the drama kept going on, it got more and more childish. I was kind of dissapointed.
