Mr Hori - A real policeman. Is it his destiny that he encountered Pankichi...?
Mr Hori is a young, enthusiastic policeman who is newly stationed at the town where Pankichi-ken is situated.
It was like a "falling in love at first sight" when he saw Pankichi for the first time... just, it was not really a "love", but an "insatiable appetite for finding out the truth".
So, he starts his own investigation to find out who is Pankichi, and how come he is running a Chinese restaurant in the town, not knowing his "insatiable appetite for finding out the truth" will soon be replaced by an "insatiable appetite for dumplings".
