Based on a series of light novels written by Tanaka Yoshiki and illustrated by Kakinouchi Narumi.

The story revolves around Ryouko Yakushiji, a 27-year-old multilingual investigator that graduated from Tokyo University's elite Department of Law, and the bizarre cases she faces while working for the Tokyo Metropolitan Police. Yakushiji not only has to deal with supernatural beings in her line of work, but also her rival Yukiko Muromachi, another equally talented and beautiful police investigator.

Yakushiji Ryoko no Kaiki Jikenbo (or Ryoko Yakushiji's Strange Case Files to give it it's full name), is another of those odd shows that I always seem to end up reviewing. The anime is based on a series of manga and light novels written by Tanaka Yoshiki, who also wrote the much acclaimed Legend of Galactic Heroes series. The manga was illustrated by Kakinouchi Narumi, who also created the manga series Vampire Princess Miyu, and has worked as an animator, character designer and director, amongst her other roles, on such notable series as Kimagure Orange Road, Superdimensional Fortress Macross (and the movie "Do You Remember ...

I think this anime is one of the best anime that I have seen. I thought that Ryoko's case filies was a cliche anime and was a waste of time. From the start of the series, it seems like detective conan turned into a girl but I was wrong. The main character, Ryoko, is one of the most hilarious and coolest character I have ever come across. It wouldn't be a waste of time to watch it. I hope this series will have a second season!!!

A mystery anime starring Yakushiji Ryouko a rich lawyer and her assistant.The two of them face some very mysterious cases on daily basis and with her strong attitude plus her assistant's help also they manage to solve every single one of them.

I like how though the storyline is simple,it manages to keep you watching it through the effort they put to solve these unnatural cases.Lively art plus realistic are some of the great parts of this anime.It also shows you how two totally different characters,a sparkling beautiful and powerful woman and a calm shy but strong man,can understand each and help each other flawlessly.
