Storyline

18-year-old Aoi Wakatsuki works as a maid in a huge Kyoto mansion for the wealthy Sengoku family. What others are not aware of is that Aoi is actually working undercover to investigate the death of a former Sengoku maid. Her death was initially ruled a suicide with a suicide note left behind confessing she broke a priceless vase. Inspector Toshiaki Kaido isn't convinced the maid committed suicide, especially with the Sengoku family refusing to cooperate. Inspector Kaido then employs his own maid Aoi Wakatsuki to work for the Sengoku family and uncover the truth.

pleasant diversion
12 November 2009 | by gjhongSee all my reviews

First you need to know there was a manga called "Sukeban Deka" in the 1980s which means "Delinquent Girl Detective". The concept is delinquent girl Saki is forced by the police to act as an undercover policewoman in high school. The gimmick is she carries a special yo-yo as a weapon which doubles as her police badge. This was turned into a live-action TV show, an OVA anime plus some movies.

Today there is a novel called "Meido Deka" which means "Maid Detective". In it delinquent girl Aoi is rescued from a life on the streets by wealthy Inspector Kaido. He offers her work as a maid in his home along with a butler and a cook. In gratitude she also acts as an undercover cop in cases where a maid could infiltrate and investigate. Her gimmick is a modified sweeper. As you can imagine this show isn't meant to be taken too seriously.

The show is a pleasant diversion but nothing great. Our lead girl plays cute well enough but her smiles often seem forced. Plus she looks unconvincing as a street fighter.
