    Made it through the first season, but bailed during the second
    Puzzles can kill people. At least, then can when created by the "wrong" hands so to speak. That's basically the principle at work here. The show is shounen style, with puzzles and "genius" solvers and givers as the protagonists and antagonists. There are many flaws with the story line, and it's never very smart. I think it skews to the younger crowd, which isn't bad because there's also very ...

  • Enjoyable anime with some turns
    When I started this anime, it was about 2 years ago, I binge watched many of the episodes until I just started getting bored. I ended up dropping it in my "queue" and forgetting about it. Looking back at some anime that I never finished, i decided to give it a chance again because I remember I enjoyed it enough to binge watch it and start puzzles myself. I finished the rest within a couple days. ...

  • One of my new top ten animes
    While this anime has a lot of mixed reviews, I personally enjoyed it quite a bit. It is complex but not so much that you have to re-watch anything. There are a few episodes that I think could have been executed better. Without going into details, this anime is pretty solid in my book and has a very fitting ending

  • Missed Opportunity, but Good
    (TL;DR Review is on the bottom)

    Personally, I haven't watched the 3rd season yet so please don't judge me on that. But judging from the first 2 seasons, I feel like it's a bit too repetitive, yet entertaining enough to keep watching.

    The plot follows as the main character of the series solving deadly puzzles with an ancient artifact messing or helping him out.

    I mean, I really did enjoy ...

  • Are you a Phi Brain?
    This series was definitely interesting but I admit that season 2 is where you might lose people as far as interest goes. 1st and 3rd Season are definitely the best and the characters are enjoyable (you're bound to have at least a couple of favorites that you like). The plot was excellent; the only thing is that you really have to get all the way to the middle of the 3rd season for things to start ...

  • Interesting start . . . hmmmmmm
    I think I was prepared for this to not be good, just from the title. But was surprised to find it extremely interesting. It makes you think about the world a little different. And the characters are different. I guess I have watched so many animes that I find a lot of them the same. This has to be the only one I ever seen about puzzles. Way to go.

  • Really enjoyable and cool
    Many of the puzzles were really cool and unique. The angles of where the puzzles would go and the character's relation to them made this easy to watch and extremely intriguing. In addition, the story line is fabulous, and the characters have a nice balance that sometimes surprise you with who they really are.

  • Different and Enjoyable
    Personally, I loved it through and through. It would not be a lie saying that it was one of the best on my list. ONE of the best. Sure, like every anime, there are some weak episodes, but the story line was amazing and the style of it was just awesome.

    Some people don't really like the style of the anime, specifically the eyes or saying it is not the best looking anime. I actually thought that ...

  • Twists and Turns Without The Mess
    I get lost easily, and Phi Brain reminded me of that. I could never quite tell what was going to happen, and I'd get lost trying to solve puzzles alongside the characters, only to fail because they're too good at it! The show has pulled my emotions every which way and has alluring, colorful characters. I really love this one- can't wait for the next season!
