Although 23 year old Yamada Naoko is a "super" magician, she is continously fired and constantly hounded by her landlady for the rent being late. After being fired once again, her boss shows her an ad of a physics professor, a non-believer of all things magical, offering money to anyone who can prove to him that magic is real. Desperately needing the money, Naoko accepts the challenge, which is how she comes to meet Professor Ueda. Falling prey to her simple magic tricks, Ueda is impressed, and enlists Naoko to help him uncover the tricks behind a local cult. Their hilarious antics, along with those of police officer Yabe, leads them onto further mysteries, all with tricks needing to be solved in sort of an "X-Files" meets "Scooby-Doo"...

Noticed there wasn't a thread for this great series, Sad it was a classic! There were 3 seasons of it, with the same cast, it was not hugely popular, but had more of a cult following. I'm watching the series again, on season 2, Yukie Love and Hiroshi have such great chemistry, you start watching them and the show the really does fly by! If you ever get the chance to see this great show, you won't be disappointed, I highly recommend it, thought it deserved it's own thread! No

Um when you say there's three versions, did you mean to say there's three seasons? Or are there three other versions out there (kind of like how Hana Yori Dango has other versions made in other countries)

I've only watched season one and like it. I hate how there's no good qualities of that season out there. I really did enjoy Nakama Yukie in this series

I need to get around to watching season 2 and 3 though.

You're right, I changed versions to seasons, there's also 3 full length movies that were released in theatres, surprising considering how it wasn't a huge hit. Season 2 I think is better, Smile doesn't seem as silly at times, really need to find season 3 and yeah, Yukie is good at most things she's in. Love

I've seen the first two seasons of this and really enjoyed it. Yukie is a really fun actress to watch, and she pairs really well Abe Hiroshi. I love it how she always pulls out a deck of cards to try to prove her logic. I just wish the quality of the video was a bit better.

Third time watching season 2, only up to episode 8, trying to stretch it out, hate to see it end. Sad My DVD is good quality, though I have some that aren't, was going to do another order soon for dramas, I'm always interested in new places to shop, the ones I order from are cheap, but are out of Trick 3!
