    Interesting, well written, good characters.
    I'm writing this at the time of episode 5's release.

    I wasn't at all sure about this anime after watching the first one. The first episode dumped a ton of information on you, and looking back at it from episode 5, I understand it much better (this seems to happen to me pretty frequently).

    A few things:
    Inga is definitely NOT a little boy. Inga may possibly be a woman, but I think it ...

    the mystery of un-go
    storyline: i usually find myself sorely dissapointed when i watch mystery shows, or read mystery novels(like sherlock holmes for example. in the book i read i knew who did it in the middle of the begining). i watched un-go almost completely on whim. the first episode intrigued me so much i kept coming back for more. in this series the writers always seem to be thinking of different ways to trick ...

    Why I enjoy the anime Un-Go
    Before Un-Go, I had never watched a detective anime ever (unless you count the few times Gintama gets serious, which I don't) and had only watched a couple of supernatural shows. However, the description for Un-Go looked interesting, so I decided to try it out. This is what I found:

    Storyline: Though I'm not sure of the over-arching storyline of Un-Go, from what I have seen, it proves to be ...

    The BEST Anime Ever.
    Okay so I wasn't too sure about this one, but I first saw it at an anime convention in a screening room, so I didn't really have time to form an opinion on it. A girl I met told me it was worth watching, so I gave it a shot.
    Long story short: I was glad that I did.
    Because not only does the fact that it's a mystery-murder show draw you in, but the fact that the characters are a mystery ...

    Found a Gem of a Show!
    This is my review after what has to be the 5-6th re-marathon. That tells you something upfront.

    This anime is anyone who loves detective stories, loves intellectual storylines, and loves good OP and EP. The setting is realistically AU, with intrigue, and plot twists centered around morals and finding the truth. The music is amazingly well set to the story, the artwork has a rustic charm and is ...

    An Intellectual Anime and Well Written Mystery
    It is rare, but they do exist. The premise of this story is that an outstanding detective has an assistant who forces someone to answer one question. She can only ask once however. It is strongly recommended you follow the episodes in order, though a couple of the arcs stand alone by themselves.

    The largest criticism of this anime is that it seems rushed. It seems like they could have ...

    Thought provoking, not cliche!
    I'll admit that the sound isn't too great and it's not the most visually enticing. And Un-Go did have one thing I really hate - creating suspense through purposeful lack of information. HOWEVER! The way the backstories are presented, the depth of the characters, and the exploration of the abstract in a concrete world was well, well done. It has just the right amount of absurdity and sincerity. ...

    Can't get over how good the music is.
    I picked up watching his anime by accident, almost. Just browsing through the catalog and the name stood out. I watched one episode and was hooked.

    I feel in love with the characters almost immediately and the music really kept me coming back. The sub stories were all engaging and entertaining, and I like that they almost make you feel like you would do the same thing if you were in the ...
