Synopsis

Kogorou Akechi is the founder of a private investigation firm known as the Boy Detectives' Club. Together, this group takes on cases both great and small. One of their junior members, Kensuke Hanasaki, is out solving a case one day when he happens upon Yoshio Kobayashi, a mysterious amnesiac boy with an inability to die. After seeing his abilities in action, Kensuke offers Yoshio a deal: join the Boy Detectives' Club and help them solve cases, and in exchange he will find a way to help Yoshio die.

The apathetic Yoshio accepts this deal begrudgingly, unaware of how different his life will become. Although he does not have much use for people, he gradually begins to acknowledge the group as he spends more time with them while solving cases.

Trickster: Edogawa Ranpo "Shounen Tanteidan" yori follows Akechi and the rest of the Boy Detectives' Club as they solve the various cases they are given, all while combating a hidden threat from the shadows—"The Fiend with Twenty Faces."

Well about the anime Trickster

Don't know what to tell you the anime at the start looked promising but after few episodes it has become boring and stupid nothing interesting happened,it's not worth watching....
The start was really good I thought gonna be a good anime since Kobayashi appear an immortal guy,and he wanted too die I was excited ,the 1st 7 or 8 episodes were ok really good to be honest,but after that it lost everything the story droped,nothing interesting,just boring conversation and some stupid mission and so it goes to the end....
The end is absolute crap...

Trickster is right!, as in this anime tricked you into watching this borefest.

Well LA will be quite honest here...from the eyesore of Soul Busters, to the utter lull of Bloodivores...Trickster: Edogawa Ranpo "Shounen Tanteidan" yori was LA WORST anime of Fall 2016 and had rightfully gained that title. So want to know why?...let's dive into it shall we?

Trickster was actually an alright show, overall. It could've been a lot better, but it wasn't a bad show.

The story is about a bunch boys in the Boys Detective club solving cases they take up. Hanasaki meets Kobayashi in the first episode, who has a power that prevents him from dying, and it goes on from there into cases being solved, character turmoil, and bunch of random stuff.

The art isn't really special, but it at least captures the tone of the vents properly.

Their nothing special about the sound. I do like the second opening theme and ending theme. The first ones read more

Okay so first off the story line at first was not all that great so I thought about giving it a rating of 3 but then half way towards the end it got really good so I gave it a 7. Then the art was pretty good except for quite a few things so I gave it an 8. Next is the sound which was pretty darn good. The characters could have a little bit more work done, so they got a rating of 7. It was FAIR meaning it got a 6 in the enjoyment. And overall it got a rating of 9. So read more
