One stormy night, a young woman is shot to death on a cliff; her body is found floating in the waters below the next morning. She was last seen with a man who is now being sought not only for her death, but also for the death of a yakuza at a local bar. Meanwhile, the man’s estranged wife has seen the police fliers and hires Goro, a private investigator, to find her husband first. Alongside another member of law enforcement with his own motives for finding the man, Goro sets forth on a trail of tragedy and intrigue to find the real reason behind these murders...
More of a Drama than anything else. The culprit is known from the beginning. You are simply following his tracks and trying to uncover a tragic event that made him spin out of control. The plot is pretty good, but predictable. The characters are somewhat cool and relatable for such a short anime/movie. ****Spoiler**** It had a sad ending in which it seemed like they tried to glorify suicide. I didn’t like that. It wasn’t bad, but it also wasn’t good. Definitely not a deep detective/mystery at all. Just an average semi-drama movie. 5/10.
Story The story is about a private investigator who is hired by a woman to find her missing husband who had dissapeared after the death of his daughter. Said missing husband is also the suspect of two murders. There are several twists and turns as well as plenty of "feels". The story is pretty well paced (especially considering that it's only 51 minutes long), and the ending is quite satisfying. Animation The animation is pretty dated. To be fair, this OVA came out in the early 90's, but those who are used to more modern animation may be turned off by it. Still, it's not the worst animation I've seen and does it's job. Sound While the music isn't bad per-se, it's fairly forgettable. It does it's job, but nothing more. Characters While it's impossible for every single character to get development in such a short time, the ones who do are developed quite well. The most developed character is probably the missing husband. Overall While the dated animation may turn some people off, those who prefer a good story over flashy animation should check out this hidden gem.
