Can someone provide a brief overview of this series?
EDIT:
Nevermind, I looked at ep 1, and it looks good i guess
I'm always up for some mystery and action

I've been looking forward to this series since I saw the link appear on the fansub wiki... it looks like it could be a lot of fun.

I hope someone subs it. >_> Or that I can find a translator that would translate it and I'll sub it. >_>

The first episode was a bit average to me. I'll keep Neuro as my detective show as the cast there seems more interesting, but I'll continue watching this show.

One thing that bothered me was at first glance, the girl and twin boys looked like the characters from Shining Tears...

I was also surprised that they were elementary school students. It's getting hard to tell age recently.....

The doll fighting... was not all that great.

Bad guy: "This battle will never end (or something like that)"
Me: "Then don't fight..."

My younger sister passed by and saw it, you know what she said?...

Spoiler for Answer that cracked me up slightly for the absurdity:

I still find it hilarious that Horie Yui is voicing a Chinese assassin antagonist.

I thought this was going reasonably well, until Golden Shining Boy and Idiot Maid turned up. And, er, not sure I can take grown women blushing over some angelic kid. Though I did laugh that the twins were also blushing.

Aside from that the atmosphere was quite well done, a reasonable sense of mystery and intrigue, unfortunately the forced humour kind of ruined it. I wished they'd animated the fight with the three cosplay dolls a bit better. And having it make some sense might also have helped.

Actually I just sat there listening to Ed, realising I should really rewatch FullMetal Alchemist some day...

I thought this was going to be some kind of mystery exploroer story, but vampire puppet masters?
cant really decide if this is worth watching yet, need to see episode 2 and 3.

Haha... what can I say about this one?

A young detective voiced by Sawashiro Miyuki and loving red tea~. It seems to me that Shinku finally decided to be a detective herself after watching so many episodes of detective Kuku... (if you have watched Rozen Maiden, you know what I am talking about)~~~ and what a detective she has become!

Loved Romi Paku in this! The younger twin (whose name I still dont know) is my fav so far. Her voice fits him so well. (I also should rewatch FMA too).

So far Im liking this. Epi 2 had a bit more in it. Also Juinchi Suwabe as the butler...~insert fangirling~

Watched episode 1 yesterday. Could not escape the Mythical Detective Loki vibes. Am hoping further viewing will let Suteki Tantei Labyrinth distinguish itself from Loki. (I loved Loki but want Suteki to stand on its own rather than be a rip-off of Loki.)

Ahh...guess I'm not the only one getting Loki vibes, however since I did not really like Loki, this isn't good news for me. So yeah, I hope it gets better

Yep, was just gonna post the big-time Loki vibe from it's fellow DEEN product. I liked the first ep and I, also, like the younger twin best so far. Loki was a decent series though certainly not great, but the premise of this new one so far - right down to the beautiful blond boy living in the western mansion with the butler - is a little too dead-on. Hopefully it will prove to be a surface resemblance and find a different path in future eps.

I agree that Suteki is somewhat like Loki . . . but they're still different . . .like the main characters . . .. Loki >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Mayuki

xD Hehehe

I'm a sucker for detective shows, and this series wasn't bad, so am definitely watching more of this xD The ones I love most here are the TWINS!!!!!!!! *_* I'm also a huge sucker for twin boys xD hehe

Seen the first episode, made fangurl comments about it at my journal. xD I can't wait for the sub of the second episode

Ep 2 was a big improvement over ep 1, which was a bit hit and miss for me. It felt much more interesting and made things a bit clearer. Specifically about the maid...

Spoiler for ep 2 thoughts:
The OP is made of win. Great track, great visuals. One of the most intriguing of the season. I hope the series touches on some of those darker fantasy elements seen there.

Well the first episode took a whole lot of time to uhhh...Not say much of anything.

Well from what people say here an actual plot begins to form in episode 2 so I guess I wont give up on this just yet.
