'''''Kochikame''''' (short for ''[[LongTitle Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Koen Mae Hashutsujo]]'', which translates to ''This Is the Police Station in Front of Kameari Park in Katsushika Ward'') is a comedy manga in [[Magazine/ShonenJump Weekly Shonen Jump]] written by Osamu Akimoto. The main character is Kankichi Ryotsu, a lazy, street-wise cop with {{salaryman}} tendencies, like playing Pachinko, betting at the horses or trying his luck at custom get-rich-quick schemes. Some times, he even does police work.

* ClingyJealousGirl: Ai loves Ryotsu and he is extremely vocal about it. Considering he was also a [[{{Badass}} Muay Thai champion]] his jealousy usually leads to WaifFu. And yes, if you just scroll down bit, you'll see than the masculine pronouns are mostly correct.

* LongRunners: Actually, the words "long runner" ''completely'' fail to express how mind-bogglingly LONG this series is. At 1597 chapters (so far), it is the single longest-running manga ever made.

* RealityEnsues: One episode of the anime has Ryotsu [[ItMakesSenseInContext grow giant enough to jump into the upper atmosphere and punch a meteor in half]], but at that size he's also large enough that his landing is an impact just as catastrophic.
