An Intriguing Mix of Sherlock Holmes, CSI, PBS Mystery, and Criminal Minds

by -

A good series if you like detective shows that are a combination of Sherlock Holmes, CSI, PBS Mystery, and Criminal Minds. The main character is a beautiful, but brainy 20-something woman named Sakurako who loves puzzling out the stories behind the bones (human and animal) that she finds. Sakurako also delves into the impact of a crime on the psychological state of a victim's friends, relatives, and even attacker, so the series can be a little "talky" at times.

Visually, this series is stunning, with amazing amounts of color in almost all the scenes. The series is set in the northern island of Hokkaido, so there are lots of great nature shots.

I usually don't enjoy subtitled shows, but this was a good diversion from the dubs that I usually watch.

Holmes and Watson... and Moriarity, Part 1


This series may fool you a bit (or fool you a lot). To begin with this is the story of a high school Watson, Shotaro Tatewaki, somewhat afraid of, somewhat in awe of (and somewhat in love with) a manic, beautiful, bone loving genius and borderline nut job of an osteologist Holmes, Kujo Sakurako, who despite allegedly having a fiance, doesn't seem to care much for most people (while they are alive) and whose feelings regarding Shotaro are heavily mixed with those she still has towards her younger brother Soutarou who died long ago (and obviously messed her up quite a bit). They spend this (apparently) first season basically finding a human body almost every episode, sometimes murder victims, sometimes not, but always with a mystery to be solved, and towards the end evidence accumulates of something (or someone) behind it all, their Moriarity.
