The Top Ten (Billion) Times Hotel Detective Doll Has A Good Think

Takao Saito: Doll, Hotel Detective, via CrunchyrollTakao Saito is most enduringly famous for his Golgo 13 series. Stoic man shooting bullets through endless swathes of human corruption. But what if, in 1984, he started a new series? What if it was about a woman? What if she were a … Hotel Detective?

Well, what if?

The series is newly translated (and available on Crunchyroll in three volumes), so you can find out for yourselves. But I can tell you now—turns out the answer is: she’d have a tendency to think really, really hard. What about? We don’t know! She’s hard to read. Maybe that’s her strength.

She’d think suspiciously:
