Tomato, Girl Detective
Main article: Tomato, Girl Detective
Akai Tomato is 18 years old, she is rather pretty, and she is already a police inspector. She is assigned to the Yoikora Police Station. The problem is that she is not very competent. She arrives late on her first day, still wearing her pajamas. Shameless, she was about to change in front of her colleagues, who are all men, untile the Commissioner sends her to the dressing-room.
One of her colleagues, Slump, is responsible to show her the neighborhood. During their walk, Slump keeps rolling on the floor laughing at the stupidities of Tomato. She sings at the internal radio, and she wants to impose a fine on a civilian in order to pay a dress.
Slump tells her about a wanted criminal named Kenta Kuraaku. Soon, Akai Tomato meets the said man in the streets. Kenta takes hostages: first a baby who was doing a bike ride, then a cockroach he finds on the floor and ants. The young detective manages to make Kenta Kuraaku release them and catches him, winning the respect of her partners.
