Yako Katsuragi is an acclaimed high school detective, who, despite her young age, has solved many cases. In fact, there seems to be no case that she cannot solve, or any culprit that escapes justice. But within the walls of her detective agency lies the secret to her prolific crime-solving skills: the cases are actually solved by her assistant, Neuro Nougami.

However, to call Neuro an ordinary man would be incorrect. In reality, he is a demon, who came to the human world in search of the ultimate mystery, having already solved every mystery in the demon world. With Yako as his proxy, he feasts on the negative energy released by humans when they commit crimes. Thus, he promises to help Yako solve the mystery of her father's death. But to do so, he must avoid drawing too much attention to himself, which is why Yako plays the role of the detective. As Yako desperately searches for the truth of her father's death, the unlikely duo continues to solve case after case in order to satisfy Neuro's ravenous appetite.

Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro... perhaps one of the weirder animes I've seen. However, this anime hit my taste buds right on! Honestly, I'm a big fan of detective fictions, main characters that are seen as intelligent, and overall weird motifs and this anime is PERFECT for you if you agree with any of the above.

Overall, the story is enjoyable, and not one second was disappointing. The plot was nothing too intense, so those of you looking for drama might think this is faulty. The plot definitely pretty mild compared to other animes such as Death Note, or Code Geass, but the main idea for ...

Mixed Feelings
Overall Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro was enjoyable, however it wasn't what I was expecting.The tags being Comedy, Demons, and mystery along with the synopsis saying things like "As a demon, he must not make his presence noticed by the humans as it is the law in the human world" and " a demon who feeds on mysteries and puzzles, who comes to the human world to feast on the mysteries offered by humans who release negative energy from their planned crimes", we can expect a detective show with some demon shenanigans. That premise sounded interesting to me so I went in ...

Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro is equal to or even better than Case Closed. I was really thrilled when I read this, since I consider CC to be one of the best (if it isn't THE best) mystery anime out there. It's better than CC, they said. You'll love it, they said. Sadly this joke of a mystery anime failed to meet my expectations. Instead, it stumbled to it, all in its drunken glory, expecting me to accept and love this series.
If you're a fan of mystery and you're planning to watch this, then don't. As a mystery lover myself, the biggest mistake the anime ...
