The animation in this anime is beautiful. That was the first thing I saw and though while watching. I couldn’t help but be distracted by it. I actually took me away from the story because it was so nice. I think it has to do with the fact that so many animes are being made with a lower quality. That is nothing against the animators that is the time constraints and company wanting and needing money. This one episode of 24 minutes and beautiful animation most likely cost more then you’ll make this year. All we can really do is say thank you for making it so pretty.
This is a very generic story though. It is a little sad to see such a generic story with such pretty art. It’s just a take on Sherlock Homes really. Sakurako Kujou is just a Sherlock type of person too. She has no interest in any thing other then bones and murder. Yes, she has a fiance but she really doesn’t seem to mind that he’s not there most of the time. She even is willing to break the law in order to get some bone she wants. Ie, stealing the skull from the police station. Shoutarou Tatewaki is very much a Watson type of character, he get dragged around by Sakurako and tries to keep her in line as he does so. We don’t know really why they spend time together or how they met but it’s still the first episode so only time will tell one that one.
