Tokyo DOGS was a decent cop drama. Its like most detective shows where each episode focuses on a case to solve while one big case or mystery (related to a main character) is on-going through the series. In this instance (Oguri Shun) one-half of the crime solving duo has pledged his life and career to finding his father’s killer and is sent from New York to Tokyo on a special investigation. There he teams with another detective (Mizushima Hiro). Together they are mismatched but effective.

Fuji TV “first true police drama”
Explosion scene shot in Brooklyn, NY:
This series has a good balance of action and comedy making it an enjoyable policing-drama. The storyline is suspenseful enough for you to keep watching but not over-the-top to make you lose interest. Plus its got a pretty popular cast.
