I don't think I've ever read any of Ranpo's stories, but I probably should since I like horror. This anime looks interesting, are there any collections of his stories translated in English?

PV looks good, even though I can't quite figure out what tone this series is going for. Actually really looking forward to this, one of my more anticipated titles this summer.

It looks like a pretty good mystery/horror anime and when I saw the guy with the bag on his head and the weird girl with the stuffed animal, it seems to suggest some dark humor as well. I'm certainly looking forward to this one.

Hmm. going to consider this...the PV makes this seems slightly interesting, but I can't figure out the vibe. Especially with the MC, he just seems very cutesy almost shota like in mannerism.

The first episode has just been released.

Episode 1

Kobayashi has been framed for murdering his homeroom teacher with that hacksaw in his hands, so now he is trying to clear his name by finding the real killer. At least for him, his boredom has been snapped and he finds this detective work fun even though he is in a lot of danger. So he contacts Akechi, who contacts the authorities to arrest him. It's off to an interesting beginning there with the whole murder mystery stuff. Kobayashi looks convincingly like a girl especially with that pink dress shirt, but he is a dude. I just like the use of shadow figures seeing that the teacher was introduced that way. Anyway, Akechi is a pretty interesting character there as something feels off about him. And the music in this show is pretty good.

I made that same mistake as well, and the teacher really is something of an enigma.

Episode 1

Decent start so far. I'm not sure I like the main guy much. I mean, he looks like a trap (even their new teacher mentions this) yet I think he is a mysterious character.

The culprit that killed their teacher seriously has a sick and twisted mind though. I mean...


Anyways, nice start so far. A lot of mysteries going on. Let the games begin!

Edit: Oh yeah, about the shadow thing. I think the show is really trying to play around with identity as a gimmick.
