Gosick

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...



Episode 1 was rather enjoyable. :3 I'll be following this one! Animation was also top notch, as per usual of BONES. :D
Also, if I ever find someone who cosplays well as that Grivel guy, I'll be satisfied with life. His hairstyle is gleaminly intense; especially with the curl at the tip. xD

Did not like the way they animated Kujo but looks like something I can follow this season. (I like reading the light novels though)

I'll be following this one. I laughed so hard when Victorica first spoke. I only know her voice as Mina from "Dance in the Vampire Bund", and both characters are lolis with similar looks and personalities :asd:

Spoiler :

But then again, this happens in anime all the time.

felt like I was being pluck -- like a chicken;
there should be rules of engagement for teachers!

Not following this'a one, nor Cardfight!! Vanguard.

Vanguard is a cross between Monster Rancher and
Yu-Gi-Oh! with a plot that reads like Spider Riders.

None of that settled into my brain. What did you mean? xD;

@Kire: I thought the same. xD
I'm loving Victorique's dress though. Those sleeves look like they'd be so comfy and poofy. *wants* ;3;
@Mini: Judging between the above picture and the anime, I guess he looks sorta different.

First ep was pretty boring, but the second one made up for it. Will follow for now.

x2 I wanna do that to people from now on. But since I'm a 6 foot tall male instead of a 4 foot tall girl.....I'll probably get punched in the face :sweat:

ep 3 out, this is an interesting series, still kinda tough to categorize it because it doesn't really feel like a mystery series. Anyway, gonna keep watching

oh, and victorique's randomness is pretty funny, her laugh in ep 2 and he "boredom dance" at the end of 3.
