Kazuya Kujou is a foreign student at Saint Marguerite Academy, a luxurious boarding school in the Southern European country of Sauville. Originally from Japan, his jet-black hair and dark brown eyes cause his peers to shun him and give him the nickname "Black Reaper," based on a popular urban legend about the traveler who brings death in the spring.

On a day like any other, Kujou visits the school's extravagant library in search of ghost stories. However, his focus soon changes as he becomes curious about a golden strand of hair on the stairs. The steps lead him to a large garden and a beautiful doll-like girl known as Victorique de Blois, whose complex and imaginative foresight allows her to predict their futures, now intertwined.

With more mysteries quickly developing—including the appearance of a ghost ship and an alchemist with the power of transmutation—Victorique and Kujou, bound by fate and their unique skills, have no choice but to rely on each other.

The 11th episode of Gosick was originally scheduled for broadcast on March 19, but had to be postponed to April 2 due to emergency broadcast related to the devastating March 11 earthquake and tsunami. The anime again met some trouble when Bandai Entertainment stopped releasing new DVDs, cancelling the series’ scheduled US DVD/Blu-ray release.

    Set in the early 1900s, Gosick tells a grand tale of war and betrayal alongside love presented as a beautifully written spectacle that unfolds over a mere 24 episodes. Initially, I hesitated to watch it as historical and mystery anime are usually not my preference. However, from the get-go, I was pulled in by its endearing cast, gripping story and stellar art style. In fact, the episodes flowed so well into the next and had me so invested that I inadvertently began binging the show without realising it.

    Starting with the story, it is at first structured into arcs which each involve a singular ...

“Gosick” is what happens when You play a mystery game on easy mode with auto-resolve turned on.

Kazuya Kujou - a transfer student from the far east stumbles upon a mysterious girl. Called by some the golden ferie of the library, she's petite, has a sweet tooth, is unpleasant and able to solve any and all mysteries with little information. From that day on Kujou gets dragged into being her “assistant” in solving cases the police are ill equipped to handle. Most of them having some strange relevance to ghost stories and urban legends of the region. Sometimes proving that the ghost stories are far less ...

Wow this actually has a high rating for some reason.

I rewatched Gosick recently and boy was it bad.

Firstly the characters. Do people actually like little girls kicking boys that they like? He would ask her a simple question and she would kick him or hit him. And kujo would actually forgive her and BRING HER SWEETS. If it were the other way around, with him hitting her, everyone would be pissed. Kujo is the reason why this relationship even exists. Yeah he's a boring character with not much to offer, but you have to admit, he's sweet and treats her right. Victorique, on the other ...
