First, we determined Mai’s height based on her approximated age. Since we arrived at 20 years old, Mai’s height could be 5 feet and 2 inches.

According to the Hatena Blog website, the average height of a 20-year-old woman is 5 feet and 2 inches. 

Now, we will use Mai’s approximated height to determine the other characters’ heights.

When Mai is standing next to Seiko, she is only at eye level with the chief officer. With that, we estimated that Seiko’s height is 5 feet and 5 inches.

Lastly, when Mai and Takeshi stand beside each other, Mai appears to be half a head shorter than him; hence, we estimated that he is 5 feet and 7 inches tall.

For Mai’s age, since she is a rookie police, we estimated that she is 20 years old. Based on her backstory, she enrolled at the police academy after graduating high school.

We have read on the K12 Academic website that most students in Japan graduate from high school at the age of 18.

Then, the police academy takes two years to finish, as stated by Elizabeth Reubenfield of The Asian Wall Street Journal.

If we add the numbers above, it will result in Mai bearing age of 20.

Moving on to Seiko, since she is Mai’s chief, she could be in her mid-20s.

Lastly, Takeshi is Mai’s senior, so we estimated that he is in his early 20s.
