At the beginning of the 90s, a Japanese series about a samurai detective became a cult phenomenon. In Japan was called Ronin Suiri Tentai, in Australia it was renamed to Top Knot Detective. This is the story of this cultural phenomenon and its main character, Takashi Takamoto, who was always surrounded by controversy. This documentary, as unreal as life, is a hysterical geniality, original, passionate and irreverent. Ah, and you should stay till the end of the credits.
