Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: Tachibana Tamako (Maya) is a veteran at the Criminal Investigation unit of the Kyoto Prefectural Police. She?s known as a ?map maniac? and knows every inch of Kyoto as long as you can find it on a map. The police is using her talent as a 'human GPS' to make detailed investigation maps that are able to break every fake alibi. However, it also happens that Tamako doesn't appear at a crime scene, because she once again found a spot that hasn't yet been recorded on a map.
Great detective drama
Great acting and screenplay! At first I thought it was going to be about a crazy police officer obsessed with maps (read - loads of overacting by the lead), but there is more to the story and it is nice to see that the writers tried to come up with an original idea for the drama (yep, dissing all of those Dr.Jin, Hana Kimi, Hana yori Dango clones, yuck).
I also enjoy that it is set in Kyoto and you actually get to see Kyoto neighbourhoods, so it isn’t a drama solely focused on the detectives working the case. I think this drama is worth watching for anyone interested in finding more about Kyoto just as j-drama fanatics.
