Well, let me first say this is my first review so bear with me!

I found this anime i this site and after looking all over the Internet and not finding it I spent 20 bucks and bought it.I found it to be a great buy! I really enjoyed the story and the main character.

It kept me wondering what really happened in the small town 15 years ago. Then just when I thought I figured it out something new would show up and keep me guessing.It had several "small pieces" you could pick up along the way and fit together.

Preliminary (13/25 eps)
BORING !!! Story gets dragged out after only a few episodes and there is very little action. The action consists of mainly still pictures with sound. Opening song is annoying as hell. Animation was good and sound was fine. I just lost interest because it was like watching Columbo, but instead of Peter Falk, it's David Schwimmer as Columbo. 26 ep collection can be found for less than $10.00. What does that tell you?
