Things need a chance to cool down after what as a red hot challenge last time out and there's nothing cooler than noir. Arino will take on the role of the chain smoking Detective Saburou Jinguuji as he tries to solve of a case of murder most foul in neon lit Shinjuku.
When he's not walking the beat Arino takes a casual stroll to a recreation center called Chiba: Daikeien. Arino shoots some 3s, has yet another rematch with his arch nemesis and swings for the fences in this laid back TamaGe.
