    I need to know what these two words say. In about a week I'll have something to show for it.

    If someone can help out, I'd appreciate it.

    The best translation I can think of is Mr. Detective, maybe a little cheesy but well.

    刑事(keiji) means detective. By adding kun my brain suffers =P

    I'm not going to pretend I know much or anything at all about Japanese, but doesn't "kun" mean "friend" or so?

    -kun is used as an honorific suffix usually for boys but can be used for other males with lower or equal status.

    I think he's called -kun because his father was also a detective (who died on duty wewt) and he solves his cases with a smile, friendship and effort (being um traditional aspects of a boy?). I dunno, it's a 70s show.

    If you're thinking 2 words btw, you might be mistaking ??? as another, but it also says 'keiji'. It's just furigana to help people like me read the kanji.

    Ah, I see. Thank you both very much. And yea, it's a 70's cop show. The intro is pretty damn cool, never seen the full show though. It was on a Sentai TV show trailer compilation DVD.
