  • Intriguing with a small dose of drama. Highly recommended!
    I had so much fun trying to solve these cases. I really enjoyed the whole 'vintage' vibe of the series, I also found the atmosphere of the bookstore very relaxing.
    A tribute to love. (of books!)
    The Dandelion Girl short story by Robert F. Young is a good one, I've actually read it

    Good, but not perfect
    Antiquarian Bookshop Biblia's Case Files is a lightweight mystery/detective drama that immediately brings Hyouka to the mind.

    Show resolves around solving mysteries tied to the books and their stories, but not stories in them, them but about them. Main protagonist Shioriko Shinokawa is an owner of title bookshop, so she, her sidekick Goura and family friend Shida are always in the ...

  • charming and as comfortable as your favorite old book
    Each episode, with the exception of one two-parter, is devoted to a tale that centers around a used book and the secrets contained within its pages.

    But wait, no, the story isn't about the books, it's about the characters who own, seek, cherish, know, and love these books.

    Or maybe it's about how intricately people's lives are intertwined, and how a simple book can impact the lives of many ...

  • a must watch for booklovers
    As a book lover, the fact that the characters were working in an antiquarian bookstore is what got my attention. The stories surrounding the characters and their books is what made me stay.
    Needless to say, I ended up looking for the books and authors mentioned in each episode.
    Give it a try, you will not regret it.

  • A Gem, bursting with love and care.
    This has all elements of a good drama and/or book. There is careful attention to detail in every one of these aspects. The camera work, direction, editing, and writing are immaculate yet tastefully subtle. The actors, young and old, are all very compelling. The incorporation of a comic relief is perfectly executed, not overbearing(as one usually is). The BGM is a most unexpected use of samplings ...

  • charming slice of life mix of logos and pathos
    smart, well done. episodic. several conversations in bookstore
    will wait to see if thhhhey can work in some level of lowest common denominator economic plausibility here but if not its ok. we don't need any hard edge money grubbing simply the books have a story to tell. so far its suprising and unexpected

    A cute mystery show worth watching
    This show is one of the few mysteries that I will watch again and again. The characters were fleshed out really well, and they developed as the show went on. They developed so much I actually wish for a second season.

    I wish to see more of Fujinami. This character was very annoying but interesting at times. A completely nosy person who just has to know everything. The reason I found this ...

    Like a warm cup of coffe
    This is the perfect show to watch while snuggling under a blanket with a warm cup of tea or coffee. To be perfectly honest there's nothing mind blowing about this show, but if every show was like that it would be pretty exhausting to watch television.

    The characters are endearing, the two leads have a perfectly adorable relationship, the cinematography is surprisingly good, and the ...

    You have to love it!
    it's about books. good books. but they are old. not too old. cool people love these books. and all of those books have a story. people laugh, people wine. all these feelings, they connect with those books. to find out those stories, that's the mystery. the solution are those feeling that people connect with those books. it's good. no. it's great.

    if you think "i hate those shitty doramas", ...

    A well crafted and beautiful show
    A show about people working in a book store and about books oh and one of the characters has mad detective skills, can't be that good can it.
    Oh yes it is, i though the same but once i started watching i was hooked.

    The characters are well crafted and well defined, they are fleshed out enough to know they premise but enough kept hidden to keep their mystery.

    The music fits well into the ...
