From what I recall, this show replaces Space Brothers' time slot. Anyways, might watch. I'm always in for some mystery.

Mystery genre anime? Color me interested, there isn't enough of these kinds of shows that focus only on solving mysteries.

This sounds interesting. I'll definitely give the first few episodes a spin. I love detective shows.

Judging from some of the comments above, I'm guessing either people don't know this is a sequel series, or they don't care.

I watched a lot of Kindaichi when I was a kid and I loved it. I remember a certain episode involving a clown that scared me for weeks though (okay maybe til the next day). But I'd rather watch this show after I've watched the previous seasons in full. And I plan on doing so eventually, someday....

I've read some volumes of the manga and really enjoyed them. When I heard there was going to be an anime I got really excited!

I need something confirmed please since this is airing very soon!

Do I need to watch the prequel to understand this? The prequel is apparently 148 episodes and I'm not dedicating that sort of time into it.

The 'return' part worried me. So there's another of it 148 episodes long? Ek, means I probably cant watch. I'm a completionist

Yeah seriously, this airs like an hour on TV, less than 4 hours on CR, anyone know if I need to watch parts of the prequel?

I've seen 20 eps of the first season and there was almost no continuity. The characters should be reintroduced so I don't think it would be a problem.

I see, thanks for the response and I just finished watching the first episode of this. There doesn't seem to be a continuation of the previous season which seems to involve individual cases. I'm glad CR got this though for the taking this season.

Ah, this must of hurt like hell.

TV has plenty of mystery/ detective shows but it nice to see an anime based on this genre and stay true to form. Lots of intrigue already.I like it!
