    No bones about it, this anime has some meat in the story.
    This is a good mature show with undertones of educational reference when dealing with bones or crimes. The character development, and story are impressive. The art is very good, with cut scenes that are exceptional for special moments. Even though this show will deal regularly with death and mystery, it explores the deeper meaning of life itself with concern and respect.

    Bones. Therein lies the Story...
    Sakurako's Investigation has quickly made an impression on Me...No, I'm not saying it's flawless. However, and this is key...Once You realize that even the bits YOU'D at first would have Personally changed or omitted...Once You realize that there is so much to the Show; the Mystery(s)...THAT'S when I quickly began hailing this as My Personal "Anime of the Season". And for good measure. Sakurako is ...

    Intriguing anthro-forensic drama
    As of episode 1.

    I supremely enjoyed the first episode. Wonderful visuals, interesting characters, and real actual plots. I've been waiting for a series that includes a high school age kid that isn't involved with high school drama. The two main characters balance each other well and enhance the show. I'll be happy if the show takes either direction of the episodic style or a linear plot ...

    A good but different kind of anime
    This anime is different from any other kind of anime I have seen before. It is a mature, more intellectual anime. The anime centers around a female character that is a osteologist and her assistant/caretaker. Her specialty gives her insights into forensic science. She is also a handful to deal with which is where the male character comes in. He watches over her and tries to keep her personality in ...

    A beautiful Sherlock Holmes style mystery
    This show is a gorgeous and well thought out mystery show with themes that put in on par with things like Sherlock Holmes. The art and animation are both fabulous and really help make things pop throughout the show. This is especially true with how deep and contrasting the color schemes are. As well, the characters and story clearly have a huge amount of thought put into them. You don't see a lot ...

    Usually Great, but Sometimes Slow
    Beautiful Bones follows the investigative duo of Sakurako and Shourtaro, a modern day Holmes and Watson. Like their predecessors, Shoutaro helps Sakurako function in day-to-day life while Sakurako solves murder cases using brilliant insight and, thanks to her position as an outsider, gives poignant wisdom you wouldn't hear from anyone else.

    Best 2015 Fall Release
    I am very disappointed with the new 2015 Fall releases but this anime will not disappoint you! I think this is one of the best series for the season. It's intense and mysterious. It makes you go OMG. I would recommend this series to anyone ^___^

    It's not really completed yet so my opinion may change by the end of the series.

    An anime with forensic science
    As this review is based on just the first episode, I'll say the series is off to a promising start. The main character,Sakurako, is an expert on bones and the science in the show seems plausible for a CSI type anime. I like the potential for the character development and the plot lines of this anime. The art style is quite pleasant as well.

    Brilliantly Executed!
    My review is of the entire series.

    Beautiful Bones is for lack of better quick comparison a crime scene investigation show. But neither the protagonists are actually in that line of work. Well at least the one isn't directly. The pacing is fantastic. The difference in scenarios is varied and holds the viewer's interest. And the animation is absolutely stunning. The only down side is how quickly ...
