Narumi Fujishima isn't your typical high school student. He's never really fit in and has become increasingly more isolated from his fellow classmates. But he's not alone, and when Ayaka, the sole member of the Gardening Club, introduces him to the reclusive girl who lives above the ramen shop, Narumi enters a whole new secret world. Alice is a NEET, someone who is Not Employed, being Educated or in Training, but as Narumi quickly discovers, that doesn't mean that she does nothing all day.

In between tending to her small army of stuffed bears, Alice is an expert hacker and a very exclusive private detective. To his surprise, Narumi finds himself drafted as one of the strange-but-elite team of associates that Alice has assembled from her NEET acquaintances. Together they'll battle gangs, thieves, murderers, and drug lords. And in the middle of it all, Narumi will find his life changing forever!

One of the most annoying things about the anime industry is the seemingly ingrained belief that bandwagons, when jumped upon, have the mystical ability to carry studios into money. It's a sad fact that every season will undoubtedly see the release of one or more shows that clearly attempt to piggyback on the success of something that has gone before. Thankfully following trends isn't necessarily a bad thing, and every so often a series comes along that can be considered a superior example of its genre.

Unfortunately that also means that the majority of titles that do jump on the bandwagon are mediocre at best.

Kamisama no Memochou is more than just a detective anime featuring not-really-NEETs and a loli mastermind. It's an anime that really takes the time and effort to create a realistic yet fantastic world and populate it with some of the most endearing characters in all of anime. The plots of each mystery is engrossing and exciting; the characters are not at all static, growing and changing as the anime moves forward.

When it comes to good detective animes, this is about as close to perfection as you'll get.

First of all, I don't write reviews. I just watch the anime, take note of it, put a score on it, and remember it if was good. The fact that I'm writing this is quite important.

Now I gave this a 10.

Story: 10
I had just finished watching "The Mentalist", a television show about crime and mystery, with comedy in between. So landing on Kamisama no Memochou was great for me. I was able to enjoy the story because, like "The Mentalist" the story was well thought out. The story starts and follows the general mystery solving format that makes it good. First, recognition of read more

Overall [9/10]
This was.... amazing. Throw away the typical geniuses (although the characters are in their own way) and place people who decide to find something better in the world in a different ways.
Plot [8/10]
The plot may seem a bit of a lackluster at first but before you know it, you're stuck in their loop, unable to tear your eyes away from the screen. Watch the protagonist go from someone who barely interacted with anyone and threw around fake smiles to one of immeasurable power and find his own worth, neither exaggerated nor underestimated. Narumi was heartbreakingly human.
Character [9/10]
Alice; the speaker of the dead. While uncovering, read more

Anime: Gosick
According to MAL, Gosick ended on the very day Kamisama started airing. HMMM. There must've been some kind of loli detective craze over in Japan, at the time. (Either that or the anime people were running low on material to sell to those looking for 'daughters', at the time, and opted for the not-so-popular aging detective genre. Idk.)

These two are built on the same foundations: In both there's an all-knowing reclusive loli, solving every case with their intellect/deus ex machina powers. They recruit Mr. Plain Average to be their masochistic doormats; mostly only existing to go from A-to-B on command and have things  read more

Anime: Durarara!!
Both of these Anime are done in simular styles as each other and they start off being told from the same persepective, the point of view of the male character. There is a mystery element to both and the characters in both series have their own qwirks.

Anime: Hyouka
Kamisama no Memochou has a saying that the dead live on only through the work of a detective or the work of a writer. Hyouka... despite not having as dark of mysteries as Kamisama no Memochou runs along this train of thought to start off with. Both have similar art styles on top of this.

Anime: Death Note
*This is a three way reccomendation, as this (likely threw coincidence) has taken popular elements out of Durarara and Deathnote, added a few modern cliche character types and tried to turn it into something new*
*Kamisama almost meets Durarara!! and Deathnote in the middle; whether or not it is of equal or even half good quailty is still yet to be seen*

Kamisama and Deathnote:
- Starts with young, passive highschool boys who come across as intelligent
- A 'high power' who goes by one name and acts threw technology
- Creepy smart child who still harbours innocents playing the high-up boss (Alice  read more

Anime: Dantalian no Shoka
Cute little bossy smart loli girl wrapped up in mysteries alongside a level headed, not-too-clued-up male (typcal tsundere victum) who has just stumbled into the situation and attained the status sidekick.

Both girls appear to be gothic loli's.
