The profession of private detective fell out of favor long ago, and yet, that's how the young man, Shinjurou Yuuki identifies himself. With his superior deductive powers, Shinjurou solves various challenging cases. Meanwhile, Inga, an attractive young lad, serves as Shinjurou's “buddy”. But contrary to his cute looks, he's a sharp, arrogant rogue. Why Inga sticks with Shinjurou is as yet unknown. The setting of the story is a postwar, future Tokyo that still bears the scars of war. Ruling the land is Media King Rinroku Kaishou, who through politics and industry has the communications infrastructure under his thumb. Kaishou has used a clear head and the massive amount of information at his fingertips to lead to the solution of a great number of cases. But there's an underside to Kaishou's brilliant deduction work, which is that Shinjurou Yuuki, "the Last Great Detective", is the one who actually uncovered "the truth" in those cases. However, the public doesn't know this and thus refers to Shinjurou as the "Defeated Detective". Still, Shinjurou, together with Inga, can't help but search for the truth.
A story boldly adapted from Ango Sakaguchi’s Ango Torimonochou (Ango Detective Stories)! Character designs by pako and Yun Kouga!
Director Seiji Mizushima, writer Shou Aikawa and anime studio BONES, the team behind megahit Fullmetal Alchemist, have reunited to create another major work, UN-GO. While following the spirit of Ango Sakaguchi’s Meiji Kaika Ango Torimonochou, which was set in the Meiji era, this adaptation boldly shifts the setting to the near future. With a style that can only be done with anime, a brand-new detective is brought forth. Also worthy of note are the character designs, helmed by illustrators pako (Scared Rider Xechs) and Yun Kouga (Mobile Suit Gundam 00). On the visual side, the designs by these two infuse the work with a fresh charm.
