On a different note, I'm glad that Hanabusa dude isn't any taller. A thin man who grabs control of people's weaknesses and convinces them to kill. Imagine for a second that he was just a little taller, maybe with a fancy black suit...
There's a much better version of this guy.

So the last episode was about their first case. Too bad the cases are bottom of the barrel in this show.

I think you may have missed my point. I was saying that if just a little taller, he would look creepily similar to another fictitious character that has become very well known and is similarly infamous for driving people to murder and/or suicide.

Episode 12:
So TROYCA ends this series with a flashback, huh? On the other hand, glad that both Shoutarou and Sakurako-san reunited.

Still, I wanted more of this as Hanabusa-san is on the loose. Maybe in the future (if Blu-ray sales are good), we'll have another season of this series!

I see I wasn't the only one who thought of Johan in comparison with Hanabusa, at least based on what little we've seen on him. Another one that comes to mind is Shogo Makishima from Psycho-Pass.

Still, it remains to be seen if Hanabusa lives up to other examples of the trope or just seems like a low-rent version- we haven't really seen enough of him to say much at this point...

Has anyone here read the source novels? Do they mention who or what Hanabusa's motives are?

@Sakurako's fiancÚ

- IIRC, he's been mentioned in the source novels. How involved he is what I don't know since my Japanese is not that good.

@novel

- Someone's translating it at reddit. It's slow though.

Last episode wasn't what I expected, but probably better than forcing a big showdown after so rather little buildup. Overall a pretty enjoiable series. Although it didn't really deliver much in terms of mystery it was advertised as.

Once I accepted that this was a character drama more than a series of mysteries, I enjoyed it much more.

The shows central them was death and the cause/effects of it... rather than being a true mystery show IMHO. Once you start looking at it from that angle, it really works well.

Giving it a solid B+. It's episodes pacing was a bit off at time and I suspect a two part structure is it's natural home, through solid art, characters and a deep exploration of death give it plenty of pluses.

Was able to get a listen to the show's OST. Finally, the OP/ED TV version songs in it...
