Ah "Hello Hedgehog: Domain of Murder", this is an OVA that almost know one knows about, in the U.S. and in Japan. I wouldn't even know about it if it weren't for ANN's recent Buried Treasure article. I read that review of it, and it seemed interesting so I bought the DVD. I am quite happy that I did, because this is quite an undicovered gem. It's no masterpeice, but it's a very good series.



This OVA is based off of the popular seinen manga "Hello Hedgehog". Sadly the OVA did not become too popular, but lucky enough for us, Central Park Media licensed it for read more

Domain of Murder is a simple old school detective story, and it was pretty fun to watch. Its just a single episode based on a random case from the manga it was adapted from.

story: The story is about a private detective working for a firm taking on a case to find a disturbed killer. This story about the killer has a twist I have never seen in an anime before or anything else in matter of fact. It makes you think would we have done the same thing if we were in his shoes or what would we have done different. it might have not read more

"Hello Hedgehog: Domain of Murder" is an oldie detective short-film, being an adapted story from the manga. Although it's old, the art style is proportioned well and still looks good - taking on a look similar to Naoki Urasawa's art. The animation is also good and rarely wavers in quality control, while there is moments of stuttering due to not enough frames at times. The sound work is good to the ambiance and the soundtrack is also fair, with older music styles at times. A dub was created for this, surprisingly, and it's even more surprising how good it is. I went the dub route read more

The art and sound remind me of a Japan I never saw, but one the 匂い (nioi/perfume) of which I have sensed from dear friends. It's an older drawing style reminiscent of Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo and Master Keaton, backed by a kind of "cocktail hour" jazz, which sweeps me away to a simpler, more beautiful time in the world, and particularly in Japan.

We have seen many of these characters before in melodramatic police shows, but somehow Inspector Yamagishi's remarkable seiyuu and character design managed to bring me to the brink of tears more than once, as though meeting his "type" for the read more
