Just as the title suggests, at the end everything is nonesnse, for this series will shatter your every concept or belief of what the 'truth' within it, is. The first episodes are what you could call simple murder mistery and quite frankly a little bit boring. Not much is revealed about the characters and the mistery is solved in a pleasing, yet mundane way. Then, it is revealed that it was all nonesense, little details mattered more than the narrator thought, thus they revealed a whole new truth. An series that will mess with your concepts of truth and reality. "Where do the lies end and where does the truth begin?" - not a question you could easily answer in this case. A boring story at first and a mind-blowing, reality-bending masterpiece by the end.
Absolutely excellent anime. Likely the most underrated anime I've ever watched, and I watch quite a bit. If you don't mind heavy dialogue, then this is the perfect murder mystery for you. It's based on a novel, after all. Shaft nails the visuals as always. The plot twists are intense, and the last two episodes are killer. 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. It sticks with you. I'm not quite sure why this anime was so poorly received by fans, but to be fair I hadn't read the novels before watching.
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.
