  • 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

  • Enjoyable to the last.
    This is a great anime with wonderful visual effects, excellent story telling and characters that are unique and engaging. The female lead is a genius and process of which she solves the cases are visually stunning. Of all the amine I've watched recently I think this is one that deserves a full length movie the most.

  • Beautiful Bones, Beautiful Anime
    This was a refreshing anime to watch. It was dark, creepy, and very well done. Sakurako was an interesting new character type for me. She wasn't good. She wasn't evil. She was balanced. She always see the world as it is. No-nonsense. I don't think we've seen all she has to offer yet. I really hope they release a season 2, because I would love to see even more of her character development.

  • Murder She Wrote, but with taxidermy?
    I really enjoyed this murder mystery series, and I thought a lot of the episodes were really well thought out. I think the disconnected genius detective trope is done as well as it can be, and I learned a lot about bones and bone sculptures. Absolutely I'd be game if they move forward with the story to a second season, as maybe what this Sherlock needs is a Moriarity to push against to really ...

  • uplifting show, yet sad
    i really liked how it shows how sad it is to lose someone, but also the beuty of their time with us and how we should appreciate more those who are with us, since we dont know how much more time we have with them. I wont say it is a master piece and probably in a month or two i will forget about it, but when i remember this show i will remember it kindly as the heartwarming show it is
