Gosick Review

This review is wayy over due. But I'm getting to it now.
The year is 1924, the place, Sauville, a small European country neatly tucked beside the Alps...

Kazuya Kujo has been studying abroad at the prestigious Saint Marguerite Academy, where urban legends and horror stories are all the rage. Most Kazuya ignores but the story of the Queen Berry, a mysterious ghost ship, really gets to him. Of course, his brainy friend Victorique is much more intrigued by true stories, and she uses her unrivaled logic to solve mysteries even the town's famous detective can't. Ironically, it is Victorique's inquisitive nature that leads the duo to board a ship that matches the Queen Berry's description to a tee, a ship that might just hold the key to solving a sinister mystery..


Gosick starts off as a new mystery every episode. I only seems like that thought when in get to the later episodes they all come together. Which comes together amazingly.
Also Victorique way of solving these mysteries is amazing. She doesn't just pull a answer out her ass like some other crime solving animes he killed her because the flower and magic beans. Also when you watch the later episodes it feels almost like Victorique is teaching you how to think. (I remember a couple of times when I was able to figure out the trick be hide one the mysteries)
Also there's no lack of romance between Victorique and Kujo. For those that enjoy this pairing will love the ending ;D I wont spoil it for you.
I have no complaints about the animation either, very clean and backgrounds are nicely drawn.
Any fan of Umineko will enjoy Gosick.

here's the op:
