When we catch you!

Wait, you'll see

We got you

No need to resist

What's this?

You got me there

You think it's a game?

Ah! Here is

your money

You don't think

we're even with this

Don't hit me in the face

I want to become a model

Let go of me

Stand up



You're late

What were you doing?

I had to take a leak

You take bathroom breaks

on your free time


You're OK?

I'm fine



Thanks to all of you

Thank you very much

Mr. Mayor thank you

for the beautiful speech

really beautiful

My lavish bribes

didn't go to waste

We, the Kirishima Group

celebrating in Sapporo

Have met our 20th

anniversary with success

and this we entirely

owe to you

We need to congratulate

a wonderful person

Maki, the singer

Thank you

We're happy...

Maki, here

there is a piano

maybe you'd

do us the honor

I usually don't

do this but...

for my beloved Toshio

I love you too, Maki


The only one you love

is the woman sitting there


The white wine too

So easy to drink

soon I'll get drunk

Mr. Matsuo from

Hokkaido Nippo

So many of them?

They came out well

...and the data?

It's all here

a bit dirty but...

Thanks, you're

a life saver

It's not gone on

the Internet right?

The $3,000 you pay

will guaranty its safety

Could you make it sure

before I pay you?

Mr. Matsuo, haven't

we deserved our 3,000?

Ah, you're probably right

To me it's fine like this

A famous journalist married

with kids, a gay relationship

Do not say that

It's OK

Here is your receipt

I deducted the tax

Very kind of you

Should you need me again

please call this bar

I'm mostly there evenings

See you, take it easy

You're alright by me

Your part time fee



There was another SD card

Just discard it, your

journalist won't know

You're right

I'm sorry, suddenly

I don't feel so good

No problem

Even I have had

enough for today

I'm free now

Oh no!

I think I forgot

my cell

I'll get it for you

Maybe it's in

the ladies room

I'll be waiting

in the car

See you

Help me!

Let me go!

Stop this

Let her go

Help me!

Let her go

At the snow fair

they all turn mad

Why can't you be a typical

Susukino boy sometimes

I'm back home

good evening

Shall we resume

our game


A gimlet please

Bourbon soda

...and snacks please

Whose turn?


Takada, let me teach you

the mysteries of Othello

head & tail

black & white

So easily switched

as people are

Population 1,900,000

Sapporo, Susukino, the most

northern major city in Asia

This is my city

I work as a "private eye"

Yes, I'm a detective

Phone Call to the Bar

You're late, imbecile

This cover smells


I had it at the

animal shelter

It belongs to a cow!

They didn't mention

if it's for human use

You should know

without being told

You take it from a

cowshed you could guess

That watch

isn't working

Tell me now

Why am I in

such predicament

You really don't care

It all started with a call

I received last night


This is Kyoko Kondo

Kyoko Kondo?

Kyoko Kondo?

Little Kyoko, it's

been a long time

What do you do now?

just come over

Excuse me who

am I talking to?

I'm Mrs. Kondo who

paid you $1,000

You don't check

your account?

I haven't check today

Is a job request?

I'd have another

reason to pay you?

I hope you're

the right person

Who told you

about me?

You told me

you forgot?

Where did I?

If you don't remember

I'll keep it secret

My internal alarm

sent me a warning

Better not get

involved with her

If I don't know you

I don't move


Where do I send

the money back?
