This is a preview and it will be deleted when the series ends.

First, this is a sequel of the old series Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo (148 eps), and I have not seen the whole of original series, and seeing it is not a prerequisite, mainly because of its episodic nature. The first ep, gives a slight introduction of the characters, but some characters are introduced as if they were already known to the main characters, but simple common sense is enough to judge those characters.

This is an episodic mystery anime where the MC solves some cases in about some 4 episodes. There is not read more

Story: Episodic so there's no strong storyline. The arcs are fairly long which is good but the story in each arc is filled with deus ex machina, the kind of plot device your high school english teacher is supposed to teach you never to use if you want to be decent at writing any story. Since this is a solving mysteries detective anime, using such plot device cripples the story and immersion as in the very first arc (first 4 episodes) you are bombarded by "oh and suddenly there is a new clue here, and a new clue there" which actually have no real reasoning read more

Recommendations

Both have the same crime/mystery feel and it involves young guys solving them.
Kirito and Kindaichi are very charming and handsome. Awesome guys that would risk it all for their loved ones. They are usually cool and relaxed, but when things get serious, they get motivated. Also in common is the theme, weak and crying will do you no good and most likely get you killed.

Kirito - I will protect you with my sword!

Kindaichi - I swear it in the name of my grandfather! (to solve this case/protect you with my deep-thinking intellect)
