Housekishou Richard-shi no Nazo Kantei is a very good anime. What I thought from the first look was going to be a shounen-ai type of anime turned out to be nothing like that. The anime has a great story and great characters and you should definitely watch it.

Housekishou is an episodic SOL anime about the adventures of 2 men, Richard and his friend Seigi. Each episode has a new character with each of them having a new story to tell. Stories about love, gratitude and betrayal. You discover each of them and see our characters grow as they meet different people and how even the slightest things like a compliment could hurt a person deeply. We then start discovering the history of Richard and why he started working in that business in a very sad yet well-written story. The story really is one of the best things in this anime.

The characters are great. We have Seigi who just like his name suggests is an ally of justice. From the very start he is an honest and straightforward guy but his problem is that he doesn't understand how his words affect others. His development and him growing as a character that understands and shows more of himself as he gains more confidence is great to watch.

We have Richard who is hates how his life was influenced by his looks. His ideology and the way he hates it when people like him just because of his good are just good to see. It's nice to see that he is more than that, he isn't the cliche beauty character and he tries to become a better character who is more than just a guy that uses his good looks to sell his Jewels.

The side characters are great with each of them having their own characteristics and the great stories they bring.

The art, sounds, voice acting, animation and the overall directing are great.

Overall I would give the anime an 8/10. Was a very entertaining watch and I want to see more of it.
Would recommend it to anyone who likes episodic SOL anime like me.
