About Beautiful Bones Sakurako's Investigation Blu-ray

Beautiful Bones - Sakurako's Investigation - contains episodes 1-12 of the anime directed by Makoto Katō.

Shotaro Tatewaki knows that Sakurako Kujo isn't a normal person. After all, most young women have multiple interests revolving around things like work, fashion, and sports, but Sakurako is fixated on just one thing: bones.

While she already has a huge collection of them, mostly animal, she's always trying to gather more, especially those of the human variety. This can be quite a problem for Shotaro: especially since he and Sakurako have a positively unnatural aptitude for discovering dead bodies together.

Fortunately, Sakurako is a naturally brilliant detective who unearths the mystery of what happened to the owners of those bones, but it's up to Shotaro to make apologies for Sakurako's odd quirks and tendency to make off with the evidence.

It's a grave business that can leave him literally bone-tired, but for the wheels of justice to turn, there are always more skeletons to be bared and new secrets to be exhumed in BEAUTIFUL BONES -SAKURAKO'S INVESTIGATION-.

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.



Beautiful Bones is an anime about people who care about each other. The deductions all come from a bone specialist point of view. There's no fan service, no romantic teasing that doesn't go anywhere, just deduction and a good story all the way through. Unlike Sentai Filmworks' other detective anime Perfect Insider where the case is inherently unsolvable to the layman due to reliance on knowledge of coding, Perfect Insider feeds you the bits and pieces you need to get that deductive rush from their complex cases without making it overwhelming. Beautiful Bones is one of those rare anime that makes me feel like I really learned something. Visually it's an outstanding anime without a trace of 3DCGI for the complex bits like bones. It opens up in Japan's wet-cold season that very few anime ever try to do. I can easily recommend this anime to anyone.
