About Un-Go DVD
This Un-Go complete collection contains episodes 1-11 plus the prequel episode 0.
Some call him the "Last Great Detective." Others call him the "Defeated Detective." What's certain is that he's Shinjurou Yuuki, a young man with a passion for mysteries and a talent for solving them that has made him the target of dark forces now stirring within the sinister underworld of a near future Tokyo.
That could prove lethal, given that not even the other "good guys," including the police, are exactly on Shinjouro's side. Fortunately Yuuki's not completely on his own, and with the aid of his uniquely talented associate Inga, he's ready to cut a swath through the veils of secrecy that have been laid before him.

Ratings & Reviews
Super stylish detective series
by JASON -
"Un-Go" is sort of like Sherlock with a supernatural twist: it's an adaptation of an early 20th century series of detective novels set instead in the near future, starring a detective skilled at deduction named Shinjûrou whose assistant, Inga, can transform from a weird kid into a buxom woman and aid Shinjûrou by asking one (and only one) question that the suspect is compelled to answer. The series is stylish and the mysteries are compelling, and at only 11 episodes, it doesn't overstay its welcome (even though its premise would support a thousand episodes).
The Last Great Detective
by ChibiJirachi -
Set in an apocalyptic Japan, Shinjuurou with the help of his assistant/boss Inga uncover the truths of their world. For anyone who needs to satisfy their mystery craving, I think this series is a good contender for that. I especially love the opening and ending theme. This release includes the OVA which explains how Shinjuurou and Inga met, fun shorts, and a talk with the writer that inspired the episodes of Un-Go.
