Synopsis

The time period is the 2030s. Before the mysterious detective Kogorou Akechi, the Boys' Detective Team is assembled. Their actions have led to the resolution of various small and large incidents. One day, team member Kensuke Hanasaki meets a mysterious boy named Yoshio Kobayashi. Kobayashi, who has an undying body because of an "unidentified fog," wishes his own death and refuses contact with others. Hanasaki takes an interest in Kobayashi and invites him to join the Boys' Detective Team. The encounter eventually leads them to the connection between the criminal nicknamed the "Fiend with Twenty Faces" and Kogorou Akechi. The fate of the two begins to move...

I went into this show with a lot of hope. There have been other recent anime influenced by the work of Edogawa Ranpo that have been pretty enjoyable, namely Rampo Kitan: Game of Laplace and my favorite dumb anime from the 90s Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo, so I was really pulling for this one to at least be fun. It didn't even have to be good, just in some small way enjoyable and then I would've been IN.

Then I watched the first episode of the show, and at the end I said to myself, "Well that was kinda boring and lackluster, but I bet read more

The only decent character in this anime is the MC, Kobayashi.
Who gets shit talked by everyone around him for being edgy.
_
In short. This anime is garbage. I thought the main focus of this anime would be developing the MC and solving his mystery.
BUT
It didnt fking happen. They said, Fk you, we just baited you with this cool MC into plain AF BL (gay) anime, with shit characters and non-existent story.
_
There are very few characters in this anime:
1) Undying edgy kid
And his crew -
2) the loli TRAP,
3) the moralfag cripple,
4) the cheerful outside and bitchy-whiny-crying-rich-spoiled-kid inside fag,
5) and the SENSEI, who read more

I didn't really come in watching this show with a lot of hope. I didn't except it to be much and it wasn't I simplie watched because I had nothing else to watch. I like the dark and action packed kind of anime, don't get be wrong I did start to get a feel of that at first and got a little excited, but soon I just felt like I was torturing myself in order to watch 1 episode, it just got boring and dull and it seemed like they didn't give a crap about the script anymore. They tried to make the anime funny read more

Wow did this show take a bad turn quickly. I actually really liked the premise and the characters weren't bad to begin with but around episode nine this show went into a different direction. Without trying to spoil anything, one of the main characters personality totally did a 180. This character was almost too difficult to watch and the hole time I expected things to get better but it all just led up to a horrible season finally where nothing was sorted out. Very dissapointing since I thought this series had some potential. If anyone does decide to watch this I suggestion ending read more
