Synopsis

Business is slow for the Ootsuji Detective Agency. Soutarou and his juvenile sidekick Saki will take any job that comes along, even one that sounds like a lot more risk than it’s worth. It’s festival season in the city but away from the public eye, a wave of mysterious disappearances has occurred. A newspaperman hires Soutarou to investigate, suggesting that answers might lie somewhere in the Dark, the notorious, anarchic maze that is the city’s physical, social, and moral underground. Soutarou subcontracts the gig to Saki, but soon enough regrets it when the kid also goes missing. Now Soutarou is obligated to venture into the Dark himself, and confront its dubious subterranean denizens, including the malicious Laughing Masks gang and the renegade police squad piloting the fearsome Demon 463 armored train!

I won't write home about how this is an underrated masterpiece and everyone should watch it and such, 'cause it isn't. This is almost intrinsecally niche, showcasing a hazy plot that doesn't even aim to be complete whatsoever. What I mean by this is, Kurayukaba is unapologeticaly unconventional, pathologically enigmatic and, even then, I completely felt for it, from beggining to end. And believe me, if you're a sucker for rich worlbuildings- specially for steampunk settings-, atmospheric and clever- even if sometimes confusing- storytelling or experimental art, then this is certainly worth your time.

The atmospheric setting of the narrative evokes a blend of metropolitan energy and industrial-era rusticity, with some small steampunk undertones for some vehicles. Set against the backdrop of the industrial revolution, the story unfolds in the labyrinthine tunnels of an underground railway system, teeming with vibrant communities and towns.

Centered around a detective grappling with a perplexing missing persons case, each crime scene is marked by enigmatic symbols, drawing him inexorably into the depths of the underground. Beginning his investigation by infiltrating the notorious Laughing Masks gang, the detective soon discovers that the true perpetrators lurk in the shadows, orchestrating events with sinister intent.
