Is no one bothered by the plausibility of a 14 years old girl being strong enough to strangle a grown up man, then dragging and sectioning his corpse with a saw? Because I'm pretty sure that requires some serious muscles .


I actually thought the strangling bit would be a reason the MC couldn't have done it. He's not particularly strong looking.

Though strangling an unconscious person shouldn't be too hard for a fourteen year old, on second thought. She could use her body weight and lean into the strangle considering she didn't have to also keep hold of a struggling victim.
And if she had most of the night, I don't see why she wouldn't be able to dismember him.


I think it's still very hard to do. You don't see many little, frail girls working as butchers, right? Flesh and bones aren't easy stuff to cut through. If she had an electric saw maybe, but a manual one? It'd be pretty hard I think.


Well, we honestly don't know if she's frail or the best in class at sports. You can't really tell by looking at her.
I could see an athletic fourteen year old girl being able to dismember him.

Here we have an idea for the next "cute girls doing cute things" show . The human dissection club .

I'd watch it.
Whether it be cute girl medical examiners or serial killers.

I'm officially convinced that everyone in this show is crazy. Especially Kobayashi. That kid will grow up to be the greatest serial killer since Jack the Ripper.

Another great episode, though I am a little disappointed the mystery was that simple. Though there certainly were enough clues in the first episode to draw the conclusion between the girl and the teacher, there was also the potential for a much more interesting and complex plot. Ultimately I don't mind as I still really enjoyed it but there was potential for this to be far more interesting. I would have liked it if Kobayashi was actually the murderer but he managed to use his immense intellect and sharp perception to leave false evidence and convince the police that it was someone else. It would have tied in great with the idea of it being all a game that he was playing against himself to see if he was capable of tricking everyone. The murder's in themselves had a lot of interesting correlations with our main character and at the end the girl empathised that the teacher and Kobayashi share a like-mind.

What....the....hell Rampo Kitan? You were all serious and shit in the first episode with only a very small dash of levity, but this episode? This episode you were basically a comedy. ._.

I mean I still enjoyed this week's episode, but it was such a drastic tonal shift from the first episode that I have absolutely no fucking clue what to expect going forward.

Can't believe I missed the first episode.... watching both right now...

Episode 1 thoughts
After a few seconds of the OP all I could ask myself is..... dafuq am I watching . /// The silhouette for backgrounds characters/until a character is introduced is pretty cool so far. /// BOY? Pffft. Pretty sure that's a trap. /// I see they snuck in the sneezing panda meme while talking about not giving murder details to the press. :P

Episode 2 thoughts
3 Minute Shocking... don't try this at home . I love the whole presentation when he/she is defending themselves or they're talking about clues/evidence. How it transitions into a courtroom/presentation of some sort. Kind of got weird when they talked about the "beautiful artwork" and "love". Wait.... the killer wanted to be turned into a chair? . At the end there was I seeing things, but it looked like the Hanabashi (the teacher) had markings all over her wrists? I noticed when she came into the room and was talking before they cut the chair open.

This series quickly went up my priority list for this season, but honestly.....

It is greatly implied that she's slit her wrists(multiple times it seems given the number of marks). Those markings are scars, which was the first thing Kobayashi noticed about her.

The glasses guy was the most annoying character of ep. 2 - there was no reason for him to keep freaking out.

I would be too if my best friend was showing signs he could be a serial killer in the future. Seriously, what normal 13 year old thinks this stuff is just rainbows and unicorns?

Anyways, I really enjoyed this weeks episode. I think the sudden comedic nature of some scenes actually fit quite well since I sure didn't suddenly expect it. It kinda shows that anything can go in this show and makes it that more fun to watch and less predictable. I think this'll be a fun ride to the end.

And Kobayashi's reasoning of the case pretty much confirms that the"Game of Laplace" in the title refers to Pierre Simon Laplace's Analytical Theory of Probabilities.

P.S.Laplace was a famous french mathematician who built the foundation of the current model of bayesian probability theory. The basis of his work is all about creating a hypothesis and assigning the probability to that possible outcome.

What Kobayashi did this episode(just like in first episode with assuming Akechi does not own the cellphone) is to construct a hypothesis based on data he has and then search for evidence to confirm it as most probable.

Hence This is Game of Laplace for him.

Episode 2 was a bit underwhelming. I expected more since the pilot kept me at the edge of my seat.

Gonna keep watching though. Mystery animes are a rare breed. Must watch 'em all.

Episode 2: The Human Chair (Part 2)

Kind of disappointed in how things were solved so quickly but I am really impressed in the way that he "solved" or speculated the theory of how it all went down.

These people are crazy though. Girl you are still young and when you grow up you want to be a chair? Smh. I mean how...why? I don't know she needs to visit a mental clinic.

The autopsy was sort of random and I did not expect it from this show, but found it mildly entertaining and also the theater antics they presented when he was explain the situation.

So new mystery next week? Then resolution next episode after? I wonder if I can call out who did the crime or what happened if I pay attention more. My imagination just needs to go wild. But enjoying what has been shown to me thus far.
