Funimation has aired it's first Summer Simulcast show which happens to be Ranpo Kitan.


My first impression: I wasn't a fan of the opening at the start but it picked up fast, overall I thought it was quite catchy. But seeing the starting I was quite confused with the butterfly but I decided not to question it at all.

After watching a few minutes of it I start to fall in love with how they decide to block off all the side characters using a gray shadow, which gives us viewers the ability to imagine what they looks like depending on their voice. I also love how they color in the characters piece by piece only allowing you to see important people. It makes me feel like I'm uncovering pieces of the puzzle.

I start notice that the Main Character is quite observant and it gives me the sense of mind that he will be useful making me a tad happy, but I was thrown off by the fact that the Main Character looks like a female, I feel cheated by this part. I noticed then that I could see a sense of Yaoi coming off of Hashiba which makes me feel a bit uncertain about the rest of the show.

But near the ending I soon to realize that the Main Character is quite amazing, he decides to pull of his situation as a game making me fall in love with personality.

Overall I seem to like the show.

If you have seen the first episode what were your first impressions of the show?
