Loki, the Norse god of mischief, has been exiled to the human world for what was apparently a bad joke. Along with being exiled, he's forced to take the form of a child. He's told the only way he can get back to the world of the gods is if he can collect auras of evil that take over human hearts, and so to do this he runs a detective agency. Loki is soon joined by a human girl named Mayura who is a maniac for mysteries, and she soon helps out in her own way. However, soon other Norse gods begin to appear, and most have the intent to assassinate Loki for reasons unclear.

Well, I was only expecting to watch Special A at the time, but found this instead. Since it was the weekend then, I was able to watch 4..or 5 episodes of this, from around episode 4 I believe. Initially, I expected something like Detective Conan, but of course that was wrong. MaLoki is a show that focuses on Norse mythos, the main character obviously being one of the deities.

The show is good for laughs, I'll admit, but if you're looking for detective work here, the manga does a better job, though of course the manga's focus isn't on that so it's still a far read more

I decided to write a review to warn people about this dreadful anime it starts off with a decent enough concept but it quickly loses interest with pointless episodes that try to be humorous but just end up getting on my nerves now there are some epic scenes that were 10 star moments but 60% of this anime is the pink haired girl saying "mystery" and doing something stupid or running into obvious danger she also has to be one of the most dense characters i have ever encountered and 30% of this anime is pointless comedic humor... now the other 10% is the read more

The overall story is definitely good and to a point original. The idea of a god stuck on Earth forced to collect evil souls is a good one and the anime even gives you a small amount of information on Norse Mythology (the manga tells you more but what it doesn't tell you, you can look up).
I was mostly pleased with the fact that the anime didn't have the standard characters that comedy animes usually have; the lecherous pervert who somehow gets away with only a hit on the head, the klutzy girl/guy who trips over her/his own feet all the time, or the read more

Nicest thing I can say about Loki and most important thing to know about any anime, is that it's self contained has an ending and doesn't leave you hanging for more that will never come.

The audio is the other high point here. The music is usually better than the scenes that it accompanies and the voice actors in the dub really do an incredible job of trying to breathe some life into this mess. I do recommend the dub, I watched the dub with subs running simultaneously and the English voice dialog is a cut above the English subs.

And it's downhill from there.
