The Demon Neuro has a raging hunger for "enigmas." Being dissatisfied with his current regime in hell, he's come into the mortal realm in order to satiate his ever-growing appetite.

This is easily among my favourite manga, for the simple reason its so unique. The manga flips through Pseudo-Mystery genre, humour, almost-horror, Crime, action and pretty much everything else so much it should feel schizophrenic, but instead works perfectly. The most prominent genre is really Psychological. The capture of criminals is often less about discovering how they did the crime as much as it is their motivations for doing so.
Perhaps the best part of this manga is the characters however. From the main characters to even the very most minor, there is not one whom is completely undeveloped. Everyone feels very real and Human (or read more

After finishing the great anime adaptation, I found myself craving for more mysteries, more of the clever humor, and of course, more Neuro. I hesitated at first because of the artwork. In fact, I spent the first few chapters complaining about it. But before I knew it, I got completely sucked in and ended up reading most of this manga in a marathon.

-STORY- 10/10

The manga mostly consists of short cases. And although the criminal is usually made obvious to the reader, the process of deduction and explanation is still exciting. This is the kind of mystery series where the author focuses on the "How" and read more

Main conclusion: not brilliant, but certainly a good read.

A girl (Yako) whoes father was murdered comes across a deamon (yes, it is consequently spelled as deamon) aka Neuro that solves the 'riddle' of this unsolved case. Neuro feeds on riddles and he wants to eat riddles from the human world. He uses Yako to navigate through human society and makes Yako a famous detective. Her role within their detective agency is mainly to smile friendly and keep close contacts with the police.

The first 60 chapters are short stories. Of course there is a big villain (X), but he's in the background. The short stories are read more

Beware that there are some minor spoilers for the first chapter.

Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro:

The introduction of this story is pretty simple. Highschool girl's Yako's father is murdered and while she is mourning her dead father, suddenly a grotesque looking demon from hell/demon world appears out of nowhere. The demon calls himself Neuro, he eats mysteries or in other words murder mysteries and the evil emotions that drives people to murder, commit crimes. Surely, Neuro has bioshounen human form to infiltrate the human world and prevent other people for finding out his identity. Soon the reader learns that what drove Neuro towards Yako's home was read more
