*Warning: rating and review are only based on the first episode. Will be updated after finishing or dropping the anime.* First let me warn you that the rating will almost certainly go up or down. If I were rating purely personally I'd give it a 10 but I can't quite do that with only the first episode watched. I was left with too little understanding of anything going on to not lower to rating a bit. At this point the show could either be one of my personal favorites or a huge disappointment. We'll just have to see. I've been excited about this show since hearing about it at the same time I learned more about Edogawa Ranpo (because of Detective Conan of course) recently. So I knew the Boy's Detective team (I keep calling it Shonen Tantei in my head) as well as the Fiend with Twenty Faces were going to show up. After the credits rolled, that was still basically what I knew. The characters were all interesting and easy to recognize for the most part and the futuristic setting was quite exciting. But I spent most of the episode lost. Things happened, exciting things, but I kept getting more questions and almost no answers. Kobayashi Yoshio raised the biggest issues with his odd "protective" shield and his constant attempts to end his life. Hanasaki Kensuke was easily my favorite character (reminding me a great deal of Kudo Shinichi) and the best parts of the episode were his interactions with Yoshio. The animation was quite good and I liked all the voice actors. I'm looking foward to where this show is going this season but this is, so far, the most tenetive of my must watch shows for the fall.
