In a dystopian future, detective Shinjuurou Yuuki—known by some as the "Defeated Detective"—solves mysteries throughout Tokyo. Aided by his odd associate Inga, Shinjuurou's insight and ingenuity in cracking cases, particularly homicides, lead to numerous mysteries solved and culprits caught. However, his partner seems to have some other, more sinister intentions for the people they catch, and the truth of the assistant's identity and motivation is shrouded in secrecy.

Based on Sakaguchi Ango's novel, Meiji Kaika Ango Torimonocho.

Comforting lies or a bitter truth. Which is better?

The above dichotomy is perhaps one of the most enduring through all of fiction. Many stories that tackle it end up siding with the truth, only to end up cushioning the blow through all sorts of contrivances; making the bitterness of the truth not as bad as initially thought.

Enter UN-GO: an 11-episode anime series by Studio BONES which tackles this theme by pouring it in the format of a buddy-detective show, following cynical detective Shinjuurou Yuuki and his quirky assistant Inga as they tackle cases in a Japan that's recovering in the aftermath of a devastating ...

Mixed Feelings
Not your traditional mystery anime.

[contains some generalized spoilers, suggestive humor and language]

UN-GO is by no means a traditional “mystery anime”. If you view it only from that perspective, then UN-GO is relatively mediocre as a whole. What makes UN-GO a “good” anime is the hidden mystery behind all the concurrent “traditional” mysteries.

Now, what exactly defines a “traditional mystery” and what sets UN-GO apart from being one? Well a traditional mystery is “best” mediocrely defined as going from the crime scene to interrogating the suspects, to finding the verdict by the end of the episode, this is best comparable to anime like Gosick.

good day to all
While searching for a hidden treasure, I came across this anime and thought to myself, "This looks fascinating, even though it only has a 7."

The plot of the anime makes no sense whatsoever. There is no context for the major characters or the story's progression.

Yuuki was the only character who was enjoyable. Some episodes feel like filler that has nothing to do with the story or the anime itself. I wanted the entire anime was as mysterious and action-packed as the last two episodes.

I was really dissatisfied with the quality of my first Hidden Gem anime.
