* ByTheBookCop --> CowboyCop: Sano, starts out by following the rules of Bushido strictly and always honoring the shogun's wishes. He starts moving into Cowboy Cop when he befriends Dr. Ito and uses his forbidden Western knowledge to find clues. As the series goes on and those behind the shogun start making things more difficult for Sano to investigate directly, he has to flout his orders to find the truth, usually finding a loophole or way to sneak around and remain in his master's good graces while he carefully stirs up trouble to find answers.
