If you're a mystery maniac or just looking for an entertaining series to watch, you can't go wrong with this one. Although the age of the characters belies the depth of each case, its a good plot for anyone who once and still wishes to be like sherlock holmes, nancy drew, etc. Imagine a school that actually develops one's deduction skills at a very young age. The graphics could use a bit more improvement, but nevertheless the cases are varied -- ranging from light to crimes that leaves you feeling regret and pity for the characters involved. There are plenty of funny scenes, and suspense read more

This crime anime may seem somewhat childish at first, but eventually a true appreciation for the intricate plots both episodically and arcing emerges along with a respect for each character. There are emotional angst-y parts nicely balanced with adorable comedy and character interactions. Fun to watch alone, but even more fun to watch with another friend or two to guess "who done it" for each mystery plot ; ) For an anime with murders as the most common crime there is very little bloody violence, so good for younger and older crowds.
