This one opens with the Chief & Oshou discussing a few things over tea, mainly Bokuto Precinct's reputation (Which seems to rival that of Special Vehicles Division 2-But that's another show
) & the new officer that's joining the traffic section today. Even as Yoriko is dishing out the scoop on the new officer in the women's locker room, she & the others get an unexpected (To say the least!) introduction to Bokuto's newest traffic cop-Aoi Futaba, who comes to them from the Anti-Chikan unit (They investigate male molesters, mostly on commuter trains). Aoi was a decoy while with the unit & in order to be effective as one he-Yes, he
-essentially "Went native", even to the point of learning the tea ceremony, knitting, etc. in order to become in all appearances a woman (And a drop-dead attractive one who's even more feminine than the female officers to boot). Even as everyone tries to adjust to Bokuto's newest arrival a friend of Aoi's from high school, Reika Katsui comes to the station needing his help-Her brother is being shaken down by three thugs for his basketball shoes that Aoi gave her after high school graduation. By episode's end we get the first of what I call the "Standard reaction" when guys outside of the police learn the truth about Aoi or at least learn what he really
has on under his uniform skirt.
At any rate, Aoi is here to stay!
