  • From Beginning to End.
    This anime brings a wholesome feel to it. Not something you see in most anime today. I like it, though the big con is it leaves a lot of the small details that the author didn't consider was important. Like, how did the "Boy" become her guardian. It's not going to be discussed in this season.


    I'm not aware if there will be another season. Nonetheless its worth watching.

    It missed its time tbh
    This show is something you watch one or two episodes a week, because to binge it is tedious. The underlying story isn't really that interesting or important 10 episodes in, main character is a cookie cutter copy of Bones from Bones, and tbh, she was the least likable character out of that cast too. Just because a character is knowledgeable or intelligent does not make them instantly likable. ...

  • Pleasantly dark and Beautifully gruesome
    I wasn't expecting much from this show (watched it since 'bones' was in the title), and I ended up really liking it, like significantly! As an avid death enthusiast and a person with a fascination with true crime, it took a different approach to death and how it is seen. Sakurako and Shoutaru's dynamic relationship made it even more enjoyable and gave the show a lighter note to make its darkness ...

  • Fantastic mystery anime
    For those mature minds that love a more serious and grounded story, Beautiful Bones is for you. It's about an osteologist (bone expert) named Sakurako and her assistant solving various cases, from criminal to civilian, using her knowledge about bones. The characters are well done and there is a variety and diversity of cases each with its own way of solving. Resulting into an entertaining journey ...

  • Sublime Storytelling
    This anime takes the maxim of "show don't tell" deeply to heart; it does a fantastic job of revealing characters through their words and deeds, not through exposition. Even though Shoutarou narrates things off and on, he's not given a bunch of overbearing information to bury us with (yes, that's a lame death/bone-related pun). He is discovering as we are, and that's what makes this story so fun ...

  • Forensics, mysteries, murders.
    Basically everything this anime is about it put in my title for this review.

    As someone who is interested in things like science and forensics... this anime was incredibly interesting and captivating for me. The MCs tend to get caught up in investigations that require a lot of forensic science... things that tend to involve death, usually murder.
    The art style is just the right amount of ...

  • Smart Show That Is Worth Watch
    8/10
    This show about a beautiful osteologist (someone who studies bones) is really smartly done. The characters are all interesting enough that the formula of "bones discovered, followed by an investigation" doesn't really get too old. Animation and sound are solid, if your looking for a non-fantastical anime, this one should be high up on your list.

  • I would definitely recommend this!
    I absolutely love this series. This is a definite must watch if you're into murder investigations!! The main characters are both very likable and both develop appropriately throughout the series. I highly recommend this series if you liked Erased or Death Note.

  • #143. Mysteries of the bone.
    Beautiful Bones -Sakurako's Investigation- is a true mystery anime, I say true cause most anime that I have seen involving mystery are usually also comedic or supernatural. This anime however is purely focused on finding answers to those difficult questions, through the use of osteology. Sakurako Kujou, while not really a officer or investigator, is the local osteologist with an eccentric ...

  • Good writing, kept my interest
    It's a pretty good intellectual Anime. No fan service at all, smart dialogue, has suspense - not easy to predict the ending.

    Animation is pretty good too, nice colors; not too much CGI

    I have watched only the first 2 episodes so far So I'll update review if necessary
