  • Impressive, yet short-lived series...
    I was a bit skeptical at first about this series, but after watching the first episode, I was hooked and couldn't stop watching. From the characters to the story and even the music, I was impressed to the point that I was sorely disappointed when I reached and watched the last ep. I'm hoping BONES will do us all a solid and deliver a second (and maybe a third?) season of this thought-driven show.

  • 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 ...

  • I can't believe this was only one season!!!!!
    The characters are fantastic and the story is amazing. Inga and Yuuki are the perfect crime solving pair. The relationship between Inga and Yuuki is so unique, I don't even know if a I could adequately describe it. The OVA explains how they met and the season had a well-written ending,but I think there should be more. Guess I'll just have to pray the studio come back to continue this one one day ...

    The moonlight steeped in silentness
    Theoretically this is a mystery show but it's an stunningly incompetent and incoherent one. There are competing government agencies that supposedly interfere with each other but only appear to spout a few lines and vanish. There's a big-brother style government that's just one guy in a chair and some cameras. There's a Japan devastated by terrorist attack but except for some ruined buildings and ...

    This show is 'meh' at best
    You start off the show not really knowing anything about why the main character is in the situation he's end and by the end you figure out why. That's pretty much all that makes sense with this show. You start off thinking this is a show about solving murder mysteries and end up with a battle between two "gods" or something like that. Yeah, I'm kinda sorry I actually watched the entire thing.

    Stunning Show.......

    The graphic style was pleasant, interesting, mysterious, and provided a sense of realism as a whole. Graphic styles ...

  • Mysteries with Panda Boys?
    Looking around in my spare time I found this and deciding since it wasn't too long at all (only 11 episodes) I figured why not give it a quick go. Pleasingly enough Un-Go has one of my favorite anime genres, mystery, following a detective and his odd assistant. Sadly though the mystery was kind've so-so for me with some cases being interesting and others being meh; it wasn't really until about ...

    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. ...
