  • There Are Mysteries Everywhere
    I've been so lucky - stumbling on all these fantastic mystery series. I now look back and wonder how I could have gone without the mystery genre for so much time.

    Characters are great in this show as they are very twisted and deep - it takes the series to even get some of the straight. The music is on par, and the animation is decent. The mysteries are well set up and while it is more of a ...

  • As far as the anime goes
    Un-Go (An-Go) is a very interesting murder mystery anime. The characters are quiet developed (although I found the protag a little to deadpan most of the time), the artwrok is beautiful and the soundtrack is amazing. Furthermore, these mysteries are quiet hard to follow and there are so many faints that just when you think you know what happens its like nope wrong. The other caviot are these ...

  • Definitely worth a watch
    I found this on a list of good mystery anime, and it certainly lived up to that promise. The art style is lovely, the stories well-written and intriguing, and it all comes together to make a great series. This last sentence is to take me to the required character count.

  • Better than I expected
    I walked into this with the expectation of a fairly generic detective show, and I am pleased to say that my expectations were greatly surpassed. I really enjoy stories that leave some ambiguity, and the directorial style definitely adds to this. I found it engrossing and can't recommend it enough.

  • Not bad, but lacking
    To me, this series often felt like it was lacking something. Part of that may be that the episodes are disjointed stories with a very little overarching plot to connect them (at least until the last story line). While the mysteries to me were pretty hit and miss, the characters are all strong enough to carry the stories.

    The most interesting part of the series is the characters and how they ...

  • Pleasant and Undemanding
    I have read that most anime are used as introductions to manga series. Certainly that is true of Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club. It would seem, though I have not seen the title among my manga sources, that this may be true here. The last episode really appeared to be a lead-in to something.

    Un-Go follows The Last Great Detective (usually called The Defeated Detective in the ...

  • A hidden MASTERPIECE
    Honestly I just found this anime today and I watched the whole thing. The first episode caught my eye because of the amazing animation and perfect voice acting. Its one of the only animes I have found that kind of made me smile within the first 5mins because I could tell it was a masterpiece that had been unnoticed by so many. You wouldn't think an anime with only 11 episodes could satisfy the ...

    Books may be better.
    I can see why some might like the ideas behind this anime, but to put it clearly, there aren't many that pertain to an actual main plot. It's good to know before you watch this that it's based off of a number of short stories that have no significant connection and there is no main focus behind that. There is no main character background story, etc. If you're okay with that, and you really like ...

  • Always a sucker for a mystery series!
    I always make sure to research a series that has caught my attention before I actually watch it, just to make sure it will be interesting. And when I read that this was a mystery series, I couldn't help myself from watching it. In the end, I'm glad that I watched it all.

    Plot - 8/10
    Now, what I like the most about the plot to this series is that is connected through all 11 episodes of the ...

    UN-GO anywhere! Sorry for the bad pun
    The first scene you get from the series is pretty standard as far as the serious anime types go. Guy lying on the ground, just returns to consciousness and is lying in the middle of some kind of ruin. The first thing he gets to see is a woman sitting on the ground not far from him and then he’s distraught. The next scene is expected to be a flashback or explanation of how he got in that ...
