this has been on the tip of my tongue for a week now, and its driving me CRAZY.

I cannot remember what Anime I am thinking of, but I remember bits and pieces of a particular story line that arched through several episodes. It is an Anime (I am almost 100% certain) that has a brief story line that involves the characters being invited to a Mansion on a small private island (that may or may not have a curse) to solve a murder mystery.

Can anyone tell me what Anime it is?

Here is what I remember:

-There is a murder mystery that occurs on an island. The main characters travel to this island and are provided with a place to stay and free meals

-One of the characters may or may not love food, and one of the clues that leads to the discovery actually involves him not eating a plate that was prepared for him

-There is a scene in which they are playing pool with the owner of the mansion.

-There is a scene where two (?) of the man characters run away during a storm, get lost together in a cave(I think), and here they discuss who they believe is the culprit.

-It turns out that the victim ended up falling on his own dagger, because when the main characters shoulder-slammed the door open, it pushed the victim forward while he had is dagger out.

-There is a scene where one of the main characters (female I think) is sick and stays in bed. The other characters have a rule (for some reason I cannot remember) in which nobody is allowed in or out of the room. I think there is a secret knock (or maybe not...lol) that they choose to let one of the characters back in.

-The person (an older man) who invited the main characters to the island is caught talking on the phone in a particular scene and this phone conversation makes us suspicious of him. I believe he was planning his escape from the island over the phone (ordering plane tickets, etc). I am not certain that this memory is correct, so if it doesn't make sense, it might not be part of this, or maybe I got this one completely wrong - sorry.





I will add more scenes as I can remember them. this is driving me MAD. I really appreciate anybody who even reads this .

Please help me figure out what Series this is that I am thinking of. I am fairly certain it is a show that I binge watched. However, there is a chance my memory is even worse than I think and it was a manga or something.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, definitely. Specifically the Remote Island Syndrome arc from season one.

It's either 'The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya' or 'Ghost Stories'. They both have a similar episode, I think.


I haven't watched them in forever, so I could be wrong.

If I recall, Detective Acady Q has a story arch like that, It's a great anime overall too.

Edit: Oh you found out what anime it is already, well anyway check out Detective Academy Q when you have the time anyway.
