"Miss Love Tantei" (Missラブ探偵, lit. Miss Love Detective) is the 6th single of W, released on September 7, 2005.

Background and release[]

"Miss Love Tantei" was composed by Los Angeles producers Joey Carbone and Steven Lee, the first time a songwriting team other than W's main producer, Tsunku, had written an original song for them.[1]

The single was released on September 7, 2005 under the Zetima label. "Friendship" was included as a B-side. A video single, referred as a "Single V", was released on September 14, 2005.[2]

Music video[]

The music video was directed by Hideo Kawatani and produced by Tetsushi Suehiro.[3] The music video stars Tsuji and Kago as a multitude of characters, including Cara and Mel, their characters from their 2005 musical, Mysterious Girl Detectives Cara & Mel: The Case of the Stolen Dangerous Violin, as they solve the mystery behind a stolen jewel.


Both the CD and DVD singles debuted at #13 in the Oricon Weekly Singles and DVD Charts and charted for 4 weeks.[4][2]

CD Journal praised the change in songwriting direction, calling "Miss Love Tantei" a "danceable track", as well as the rap interlude and the first press edition photo card "cute."[5]
