On Wet Crow's Feather Island, a tiny speck in the Sea of Japan, lives Akagami Iria, the exiled daughter of a powerful family. Born into great wealth, she was a princess of the highest pedigree–until she was cut off by the leader of the Akagami Foundation. For the last five years, she's lived on Feather Island with her maids. But she hasn't been alone. She has invited the best minds Japan has to offer to come and stay with her.

Absolutely excellent anime. Likely the most underrated I've watched, and I watch quite a bit. If you don't mind heavy dialogue, then this is the perfect murder mystery for you. Shaft nails the visuals as always. The plot twists are intense, and the last two episodes are mind-blowing. A slow burn that ends with a house fire. If you're looking for something similar to monogatari, you found it. If you're searching for that amazing anime nobody else has seen, your search is over. 10 out of 10, it sticks with you.
A woman confined to an island invites geniuses to visit and spend time with her, but this time there is a murderer amongst them. Not a good mystery show, there is mystery sure, but the audience is not given enough information to solve it (perhaps someone who has read/watched mystery stories before could) and the show is more like Monogatari series with 100% less combat and the same amount of dialogue, as a bonus Akio Watanabe designed the characters. Thoughts Story is a simple murder mystery, but actually is not as it is revealed in the last episode Animation is good and reminds one of Monogatari series Sound is good Audience is not told much about the characters, aside from why they were brought to the island
Satisfying Conclusion?✔️Emotional?❌Actual Romance?❌Actual Comedy?❌Fanservice/Nudity?❌What is this anime?Murder mystery show. Rich girl invites geniuses from around the world to stay at her mansion, and one of them is murdered. The story follows one of the geniuses and her assistant in solving the case.Did I enjoy it?I'm not much of a mystery nut. If I was this would have a likely higher score. I foreshadowed some things right, and some things wrong. Some of the ways the murder was solved didn't make much sense or were unreasonable (the second locked room explanation). I was expecting a bigger "bang" for the big reveal, but it ended up with "Oh ok, this is what happened. Now to get on with life". Then it comes with an extra episode which explains even more of what happened on the island. While everything was very clever and interesting with some plot twists, it was slightly boring and lacked any pizzazz in the special moments. Another annoyance in the writing (that may just be me) was that much of what the characters say is never as-is. You have to interpret a lot of what some people say. Which is OK but normal people don't talk like that. If you love mystery though, go for it. It just wasn't for me.
