Synopsis

Layton receives a letter from the famed opera singer, Jenis Quatlane, inviting them to see her newest performance. She also asks Layton, Luke and Remi for assistance in a mystery, saying her friend Melina died one year ago, but returned later as a seven year old girl saying she had found the secret of eternal life, and she also knew all the secrets that only the true Melina could know. Naturally, the case fascinates Layton and his apprentice, so they head to the Crown Petone opera house, but Remi stays in London, searching for some girls that went missing in there.

The opera was about a lost kingdom, The Kingdom of Immortals; once, there was a beautiful queen that loved music. She was beloved by everyone in the kingdom. But one day, the queen became very ill. The people of the kingdom toiled to find a cure, but medicine couldn’t help. The queen finally passed away, and right after, the cure was completed: A potion for immortality. The people of the kingdom deeply lamented for the death of their queen. In order to the meet reincarnated queen again, they decided to become immortal, using the just-completed immortality nostrum. Abrosia's Kingdom is still somewhere in this world, waiting for its queen to return, and then, she will sing forever.

After the spectacle finishes, a masked men appears, and proposes something to the audience: "Let's play a game"- he says- "The winner, will have eternal life. The losers, will have to die." It's up to Layton and Luke to enter in the game, and discover the secret of Eternal Life.

Game adaptations seem to be a bit of a tricky subject for most anime studios for some reason. There are numerous examples of a perfectly good game being turned into mediocre show for no other reason than to cash in on the game's popularity. Part of the problem stems from the mistaken belief that fans of a particular game will spend their hard earned cash on a sub par representation of it, and while there are people who will buy the anime adaptation, the resulting income barely justifies the cost of making the show in the first place.

Not all adaptations are bad though. While many read more

There seems to be some great misconception among the general viewership that a work of film needs to be bursting at the seams with blood and sex to be “mature”. More people will see a film that wears an R rating like a badge of honour on a weathered veteran than will see Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva and films like it, and it’s their loss.

‘Eternal Diva’ is the first in a planned series of anime films based on the Professor Layton series of puzzle games. Though the games aren’t for everyone, the movie takes place years before the games’ timeline (with the exception read more

Recommendations

Similar style and music. Main characters of both look similar as well because they both wear large top hats.
Both Layton like Victorique are characters based on the greatest creation of Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes. They are people very clever and deductive. They keep quiet because they know that their wisdom will solve all enigmas.
In Gosick, the chapters that are dedicated to Alchemist are most noticeable where the resemblance between these two animes.
Layton Kyouju to Eien no Utahime is a film in the style of the 70's, It focuses on the story and not add useless and misplaced details; while Gosick is tailored for this time, that is, has several features very 'commercial', such as romantic situations, stereotyped characters and moments repeated in many series.
Because Gosick is a series, you have more time employed to carry the plot and give more moments of mysteries, although some details misplaced.
Both animations are somewhat emotional but the end of Gosick is more developed.
Why Layton Kyouju to Eien Utahime is more similar to Gosick that Dantalian no Shoka ? Because Dantalian no Shoka is more fantastic
