“Seven Detectives 2,” premiers Thursday, July 18 at 8 p.m.; and repeats Friday, July 19 at 1 p.m.
Division 12 of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department is ridiculed as the “banishment room” where hardened detectives who cannot be fired are sent. No matter how glorious your past may have been, once you are sent there, you can forget about ever returning to the limelight again. The detectives in Division 12, however, are actually all excellent detectives, they just have their own idiosyncrasies and are tough to handle. No matter how their individual characters may clash with one another though, they still work as a team to resolve all the tough cases assigned to them.
