Best Japanese Shows to Watch on Rakuten Viki: Dangerless Detectives

Photo Credit: (

Dangerless Detectives is one of the newest shows available on Rakuten Viki, as it was produced in September of 2020 (and only recently added to Viki).

Dangerless Detectives is one of the funniest Japanese shows I have watched so far, although it is a really dumb and slapstick type of humor. The show is about 2 detectives who are trying to work their way up (one wants to become a police commissioner, while the other one wants to transfer to a corporate job) the ladder without ever putting themselves in danger. The two detectives come up with plots or stories to get themselves put into the easiest stakeouts, which leaves them with time to do extracurricular activities while on the job (eating at good restaurants, going to the sauna, hanging out with girls, etc.).

One of the reasons Dangerless Detectives was such a funny show is that even though the two detectives do the least work possible, they have such good luck that they always end up solving the crime or catching the criminal without even intending to. The two detectives lead a charmed life, which is hilarious compared to the other two detectives in the show, who are constantly saddled with bad luck (they never get credit for catching the criminals) even though they put in the most work.

Dangerless Detectives is only 8 episodes of 25 minutes, so it is a really quick show to get through. If you are looking for some good laughs and don’t have too high of expectations heading into the show, I think you will be pleasantly surprised by Dangerless Detectives (if it suits your sense of humor).

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.

NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.

I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
