Mikako Tabe has another winner with "Naniwa shônen tanteidan". It's a fun family comedy/drama and another nice vehicle for Tabe who has proved over and over, that she is one of Japan's finest character actors. She has amazing versatility and her skills should only deepen as she grows older. I wish she could branch out into international films, but Japan might miss her too much. My one regret with this series, is that they didn't use Yuki Yagi, a fine little actress in her own right, all that much. One liners, here and there, were all they gave her. It seemed such a waste. But that aside, another triumph for Mikako Tabe and the rest of this fine cast.
