  • Synopsis/Summary/Review: 

    Each episode's mystery is solved within that short time span, but unlike typical detective shows, this comedy features a slow-witted sleuth named Rokuro Kurama. While viewers will be able to identify the criminal right away, Kurama constantly comes up with incorrect theories, leading him to always accuse the wrong person. The show's name comes from its time slot (Saturday nights at 11:10pm), which runs a total of 33 minutes after commercial time is subtracted. --Tokyograph
