  • Slightly off doctor + a couple of smarty pants = SAUCE
    Great stuff!! It starts out much like an episode of Bing Bang Theory (which made me cringe) but I'm glad I got passed that. From there, get ready for a quaint little mystery.

    The story focuses on a genius doctor who is confined to a room for a crime she was accused of 15 years prior. The protagonists, university professor Sohei Saikawa and assistant Moe Nishinosono, have set out to pick her ...

  • Wish there was More Episodes and a 2nd Season
    I love this series and I wish that there was a Second Season. After finishing the series and I am still left with some questions about some parts that happened. I will reread and finish the manga; if I have missed anything. I prefer this version from the Live Action that was okay. I want more of Sohei Saikawa and Moe Nishinosono. I wonder if there is any news about a second season or anything.

  • crime X steins gate (?), awsm fo sure (!)
    Well, my humble advice:

    just start watching it.

    (it is mostly about smart people having smart thoughts but a complicated way to interact... mh. doesn't sound quiet right but maybe close enough. The story gets more and more interesting with every episode and once you realize how awesome this show / the plot / the complex character development - in that very short time - is... it is sadly ...

  • Keeps my interest so far
    I'm surprised by the low average reviews, especially given how so many mindless Anime in crunchyroll get 4.5+ reviews. The art style is pretty good, the plot is interesting, no much fan service (I say that as a goof thing), the dialogue is solid. I recommend this

  • Well produced but lacking believability
    Perfect insider has great designs, excellent production and the mystery at the core is interesting. It is a unique and well paced take on a classic closed room mystery, but the characters lack believably. The main characters were often acting on motivations that seemed unrealistic or confused, this was the single biggest issue I had with the show. There were a couple times I was wondering how a ...

  • Thought provoking and fresh anime!
    The reason why I really liked this anime is because it didn't fall into the usual traps into which "smart" shows tend to fall. That being said, the ending, while being satisfactory, was a little bit strange.

    Additionally, the style was relative unique, and the pacing in the series felt like it was well thought out. In other words, after having watched it, you neither felt that it had dragged ...

    Some solid creepy ...
    So the creep factor is there on a horror level (I consider this good) for the first part of it and on another level entirely (I consider this to be neutral to negative) for the rest.

  • If you dont get it..
    ..then it's not for you!
    I thought this was a very brilliant anime.
    I'm not sure how other people found it confusing. It's a very complex storyline, but I'm amazed at how they fit it into 10 episodes.Highly recommend if you're looking for something different.

  • Unique characters makes series
    Very enjoyable with very unique main characters. I would agree with others that the "mystery" aspect of the story slowed down, but I don't think that was the point of the series. The characters were so different it was much more enjoyable to learn about what motivated them than the next step in the case.

  • Took me way to long to watch this
    SO the concept was really interesting. And even though it wasn't my favorite art style, I appreciated that it was different from the other anime's that I have watched in the past. But as I stated in the title of this review, I really couldn't get into watching it. It was much to slow at some points and the characters just clashed in an awkward way. I had started watching it months ago but it would ...
