    • Synopsis
    • Police Corporal Kankichi Ryotsu of the Kameari Park Police Box, Katsushika Ward, Tokyo, is the best-intentioned guy you'd ever want to meet, but nothing he does ever goes right and he causes nothing but trouble. His fellow-officers at the police box, Reiko Catherine Akimoto and Kenichi Nagakawa, are constantly at their wits' end with him, while his superior, Sergeant Ohara, is always wondering where the next lightning bolt is going to strike. One day Ryotsu runs into Momoko, a girl he used to like way back in primary school. His heart leaps. Suddenly the Police Commissioner's daughter is kidnapped, and Ryotsu learns that Momoko has been caught up in the case. For her sake, he sets to work solving it. But things he never expected start to happen, and he finds himself driven into a corner. Can he solve the case and save Momoko? And what will become of this bittersweet love story if he does? Ryotsu, an inveterate trouble-maker with the best intentions in the world, brings laughter and tears to the screen this summer in a comic but moving entertainment.
