Plot Summary: Disowned by his father, Jugo Yama has run away from home to the island of Nanae. He begins to live by himself, only to discover his room is haunted by the ghost of Nanana Ryugajo. She was murdered ten years ago, and her killer must be found before she can rest in peace. Before her death, Nanana collected things from all over the world and hid them throughout the island. Using the mysterious powers of these hidden items, they should be able to find the culprit. As Jugo begins his hunt for her collection, however, he discovers he’s not the only person searching.

 

Thoughts on it so far: The show does have a promising storyline and plot from the looks of it and the first episode was just a taste of what could happen. I like the whole ‘finding treasure’ angle meaning that they can explore worlds, bond with one another and all that Indiana Jones-esque stuff….then I realize I got ahead of myself and remember Galilei Donna and how that turned up. I liked it but it wasn’t close to what this anime is (or at least what I hope to be). The story of how Nanana won’t rest until they find her killer so she can move on is one of the few good points in the show. Jugo and his story of him being disowned by his father……I really couldn’t care less about him or that. Hopefully more characters show up here and I can feel more invested than I already do.

 

Yeah, I’m actually looking forward to more of this. This is definitely a CONTINUE WEEKLY for me. I hope they can keep up the pace with this.

 

Until then, this is MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid, bringing all the treasure into…..well, for a ghost of this dead girl.

 

Next up, a title that features a brother-sister hikiromori duo who are urban legends in the videogame realms……and hopefully they’re not incestuous.
