Tomato, Girl Detective

Akai Tomato in Tomato, Girl Detective

Akai Tomato is 18 years old, she is rather pretty, and she is already a police inspector. She is assigned to the Yoikora Police Station. The problem is that she is not very competent. She arrives late on her first day, still wearing her pajamas. Shameless, she was about to change in front of her colleagues, all men, until the Commissioner sends her to the dressing-room.

One of her colleagues, Slump, is responsible to show her the neighborhood. During their walk, Slump keeps rolling on the floor laughing at the stupidities of Tomato. She sings on the internal radio, and she wants to impose a fine on a civilian in order to pay for a dress.
