From Tokyopop: Kurumi Ayaki is a recently-retired police officer with a record of excellence on the force and the guts and guile to back it up. In order to earn some extra money for her upcoming wedding, she has to return to the force... and is "rewarded" with an assignment to an elite unit who solves crimes that have been classified as unsolvable. Partnered with a mysterious young genius who is unable to feel emotions, or even to leave his room, she acts as his eyes and ears to piece together clues even as her own personal life falls apart around her.

I started reading this back in 2006 and sadly, I haven't the money to finish reading it just yet. I think that, since I was so new to manga at the time, Remote seemed amazing. Even now, I have to admit that I do really enjoy the series. It is true that the drawings aren't pretty. The only well done characters are the two many characters, something that I take to be the artist's choice and purposely done.
No, it's probably not the best mystery around and I probably only rated it a 10 because it was a favorite of mine a few years ago, but I think it's still a good manga, but my opinion might change when I'm done reading it.
Story: Average. Art: Very bad
In this manga the illustrator and the writer are different people so I'll start by commenting the first thing you'll see when opening the manga: its art. I'll give you two words: it sucks. Yes, the art in the manga looks more like the first attempt of someone learning to draw manga. It's really bad. As for the story, well I did find the detective/mystery tales quite amusing. They are nothing out of the ordinary but they are decent. If you are into mystery and detective stories and don't mind the ugly drawings I think you will enjoy it.
quite good read
well, i haven't read many mystery books in manga form, but i think this series is pretty good. the interaction between ayaki and himuro is interesting, and i like how the author develops the characters.
on the other hand, the mysteries do seem pretty typical.... and shingo gets quite annnoying after a while. but what the heck, i'm reading this purely to see the development of himuro and ayaki's relationship =D

Erm... if you want better detective series, either read Kindaichi, Tantei Gakuen Q or something else. This series assumes so much, it's laughable. At least the mangaka improved significantly in Tantei Gakuen Q, in establishing sound assumptions and well thought-out scenarios. (Edit: But at least the cases in the next few volumes are much better than the ones in the volume 1 which was really shaky in its' premise and assumptions.)
Edit: And this series is supposed to be violent? I'm sorry but the blood and gore are really tame, as compared to some "crime/detective manga".

Ah, its not the best manga that ive read by i did enjoy it. It kinda reminded me of death note. I feel sorry for shingo. I can see him being in the next murder suspect in one of her cases. I think ill try out some more mysteries. Dang that chick is a bitch, and not even in a good way.
CRAP! CRAP! CRAP!
sorry... the first manga I manage to give up after skimming through 3 volumes. I was hoping there could be something good. But crap! Mystery? This is crap compared to detective conan and death note.
Total and utter garbage.
"God, what an angle to shoot!"
Manga-Sketchbook not so proudly present :
Where ugly art and pointless fanservice combine
Uh! I can say that, in all the ten volumes Remote released, the advertisement of M-S group is the most interesting thing.
Dont believe me? Read on for yourself. I double dog dare you!
