Since the death of his parents, Shinpei Ajiro had lived with the Kofune family and their two daughters—Mio and Ushio. Although he then left his home island to continue his education in Tokyo, Shinpei returns after Ushio tragically drowns during the attempted rescue of a little girl. During the funeral, his best friend informs him about bruises found around Ushio's neck, casting doubt over the cause of her death.

Suspecting a murder has taken place, Shinpei reevaluates recent events, but strange incidents only continue to transpire. Disappearing people and other unexplainable occurrences lead Mio to recall an old folktale referring to entities called "Shadows," which may not be entirely fantasy. Supposedly, an encounter with one's Shadow foretells the person's impending demise.

Facing the dark side of Hitogashima Island, Shinpei stands against his grim fate to fulfill Ushio's final will—to protect Mio.

Preliminary (5/25 eps)
Alright, I want to start off this review by saying that I started this show because it was being touted as "the dark horse" of the season. I will also say that the very first episode has what it takes to grab your attention. The problems, however, start quite literally after that point. Our Main Protagonist is an idiot. Idiot, might actually be an understatement here. To explain I do have to add spoilers and there's no way I can avoid it. I can try to be a bit vague here and there but, generally speaking, it's still spoilers. That out of the way, you ...

this is how mystery anime should be done.


i really like how it gives you enough clues to keep pace with the developments in the plot, but not enough to make it predictable. tension is skillfully maintained. the show-don't-tell aspect is subtle and well done.
pleasant to look at, and character designs are quite unique. animation is really smooth. TINY SPOILER: i also like how the shadows have red on their bodies so viewers can differentiate between the real people and shadows, i know it has been done before, but the red makes it extra creepy.

the soundtrack is what i like the most. it's ...

The straight-up "here's your foreshadowing" on a mystery show of the season.

I'm not criticizing the cliches, but it is a friendly set-up for anyone who likes mystery. There's a certain charm to each mystery author's writing style, and I couldn't oppose the one used in this show either. How the show so far is neatly executed is what I personally prefer. There are no excessive "innovative" twists, no lore dumping right on the get-go, and no overblown fanservice. To be fair, the last part might be subjective or poorly aged later on.

An aspect that I like would be how the story is told from ...
