For most people, finding a dead body on their vacation would mean the vacation is over. However, for Souhei Saikawa, a professor of architecture, and his student Moe Nishinosono, a math prodigy, it's a different kind of challenge.
Genius programmer Shiki Magata, one of Souhei's idols, is inexplicably murdered inside the sealed research lab she disappeared to after being found innocent of her parents' murder. As Souhei and Moe take the first steps into a deadly new world, they must untangle the complex web of events and clues leading up to the murder.

Ratings & Reviews
A show that tries too hard without succeeding at anything
A scene near the beginning perfectly sums up the show: a character is primping in a mirror, carefully putting on just the right combination of quirky I-just-threw-this-on pieces to make an outfit and trying to make her hair look -just- disheveled enough.
Each character is trying very hard to be intellectual or eccentric or edgy but all of it comes off like a teenager trying their best to look like they don't care - and this is the hook for the show, it takes the entire first episode to itself and is often the focus.
Plot-wise it's less mystery and more cheesy B horror territory that doesn't make its badness fun; in the course of trying too hard to be edgy and shock you its plot ends up weaving an utterly insane course of events that only look nuttier when you follow the logic in its entirety and realize someone thought this was awfully clever.
Interesting Mystery series with high production values
A well animated mystery series that will keep you engaged until the very end. Originally watched it on crunchyroll and decided to purchase it when it was later released on blu-ray. Well worth the investment.
