I watched first episode like all the new releases on CR and Hulu and this show has already gone to top of my list with animation style and setting along with nice beginnings of a story its amazing when a studio puts thought behind a production the end result is nice, not a cookie cutter piece of shit with CGI sprinkled in it. Happy for this show might save fall season for me.

Okay, watched the episode, the boy was annoying and the him and Sakurako have no chemistry. No well disguised sexually tense wordplay, no thinly veiled insults or attempts at dominance, etc. I think it's because the boy is fairly dumb compared to Sakurako and mild mannered to boot. Normally such a juxtaposition would cause them to be foils, but neither him nor Sakurako to an extent are likable characters to me, so we only see the clash, and not the features of both characters.

I expect to see major characterization be done to do this series justice. That's my hope for the series. Other than that I liked it.

Episode 1

Duuuude, Detective Conan/Science Beeyotch in this bitch!!

I love a series like this. You know, the mystery with that good dash of science mixed into it! As a Criminal Justice major, I felt like I could relate to this episode, so I truly enjoyed it all the way through! We get introduced to our two characters, Sakurako and Shoutarou who make for and interesting duo since it feels like Shoutarou seems to be the level-headed one. They end up looking for bone remains at a beach, but end up to a crime scene and from there is where things get good. Sakurako basically figures out it was a double murder and how it could have been done, which I found great because I love me some mystery solving. The art and animation looked great as well, so I believe this could be the gem of this season. I am looking forward to the next episode!

Hey, that was good!
Liked it and characters just quirky enough to be interesting. Nothing wrong with a good mystery. Underline good.

ep 1

the guy is really annoying

sakurako pretty much had to carry the whole episode by herself

I hope the romance doesn't ever develop, that it stays one sided, and that they only focus on the mysteries they encounter

Meh. This series is a lot like a lot of Japanese live action mystery shows with quirky investigator types except that it's beautifully animated. The character designs and personalities seem bland and even Sakurako's misanthropy strikes me as very one-note. I'm giving this series another episode for the mere fact that she's at least fully dressed.

It reminded me of Dog & Scissors. Without the dog,.....or the scissors.

Seems interesting though.

This is my kind of series (focused on story & intelligence instead of service)! And I agree with the idea that its in the vein of something like Bones, though the coloring makes me think of Dusk Maiden of Amnesia. Definitely going to be keeping up with episodes.

Love Sakurako, even with her bone obsession.

Really good first episode, and Sakurako is just plain cool. Great character. My only complaint is actually with the music. it just felt out of place to the point where it was actually distracting. I'll definitely be coming back for more next week.

Episode 1: The Princess Who Loves Bones

That was very aesthetically pleasing. The animation and lighting effects were beautiful and the backgrounds and scenery were well produced as well.

I like Sakurako, she is too adorable with her bones. "This is mine!!!!" Ugh that was too cute. Love seeing a mature looking woman let out her childish side every once in a while.

Wonder how their relationship will progress. Maybe not in a romantic way because she does have a fiancee but maybe just building a chemistry and understanding towards another. But for that girl in the beginning I approve.

This series has a realistic type of feel as there is no ecchi or boob shots. The girls are properly dressed, even in the school, and it looks like its gonna be a fun ride. Looking forward to the next episode.

What an OST.

Nice start, this looks so promising.

Episode 1

Okayish start.

Basically the anime version of Bones.

Sakurako is a pretty unique/eccentric character definitely more so than our bland male MC.

One of the three anime I most anticipated this season so hope this doesn't disappoint/improves.
