Ratings & Reviews
Un-Go is a good show. The story and art work is great. The story can be dark and times and some of it can make some people uncomfortable, but besides a few scenes if you like a more mature detective show you should give this a try.

Shinjūrō Yūki is a detective living in a future Japan that suffers from the ravages of a war that ended some years before. He is known as the "Defeated Detective" due to the fact that credit for every case he solves ends up going to Rinroku Kaishō. Despite that, Shinjuro and his very strange assistant, Inga, continue to solve crimes and expose the darkness of their world.
This series is based on the work of Ango Sakaguchi, stories that took place in post WWII era. I don't know why the setting was changed to a futuristic one, but it turned out quite well. At first I wasn't really sure if I liked the series - the first few episodes are stand alone stories with strong elements of the darkness in a human heart. But around episode 4 or 5, things start to get interesting.
Worth the watch :)

Ungo is an interesting retelling of the mystery writings of Ango Sakaguchi in a alternate/future reality with some dystopian elements. The series starts a little slow but builds and builds upon each episode. It's a show with a unique style and story that will draw you in. The only real flaw I felt it was too short. If you like mysteries, I believe you'll enjoy this. I know I did.
