Spoiler for Not really spoilers, but hiding for those who absolutely do not want to read anything about the story beforehand:


I'm a super, duper mystery lover (though not as much for horror)! The manga adaptation of this title by KIYOHARA Hiro is a decent read. I wonder how this 677 pages novel adaptation would be animated =).

Is this a mystery novel in the 'whodunit' sense or the 'OOOOOH MYSTERIOUS ATMOSPHERE WITH MAYBE A DEATH OR TWO" sense?

If it's the latter I don't care.

Thanks for asking, I should've used "detective mystery writer" instead of just "mystery writer"; and afaik, the orthodox school is same as whodunit (think Ellery Queen). As for the story itself, I've only read the manga which hasn't progressed very far yet so .

Refer to post 68

YES. GOD YES.

I never get to see these anymore, just 'crime novels' and shows like Yakumo that only pretend to be real mysteries.

It might be because their recent track record (Tatami Galaxy aside) is not very flattering. Still, they've done a great job on similar adaptations in the past (I'm thinking of Mouryou no Hako), so I wouldn't mind if they got this one. They just need to pick the right director.

Looks madly interesting. Maybe I should check the manga. Mystery shows with an actual mystery to solve rather than a simply mysterious setting is rare these days.

And if it's NoitaminA, looks like 11-13 episodes max.

I'm looking forward to this, it being mystery is just more frosting on the cake.

There is even enough material to adapt?
So far 12 episodes wouldn't be enough.

I was wondering who was the studio. Not familiar with Mourou no Hako but it seems they did a good enough job.
