Time of the SEASON FALL 2015 Edition: Beautiful BONES -SAKURAKO’S Investigation

Hmmm… a show about a girl with a mysterious fascination with bones?

3 things:

  • A show that’s about bones and once again, studio BONES nowhere to be found!!
  • Anyone get a Bones/House vibe from the main character? Only she’s a mid-20-something year old girl…and kinda hot, too.
  • Wait….this is based on a light novel…..and yet this is—

Wait, wait, wait……I give you my thoughts in a bit.

This is Beautiful Bones – Sakurako’s Investigation.

Plot Summary: Shōtarō Tatewaki is a normal high school student with a serious demeanor who likes to show off his girlfriend Sakurako Kujō. Sakurako is an extraordinarily beautiful woman in her mid-20s from a rich family who loves “beautiful bones.” The two live in the city of Asahikawa in Hokkaido, and they get involved in various incidents regarding bones.

First Thoughts: Hmmm, not bad. This was a decent first episode out of this and the fears I got from this is the fact this was based from a light novel but fortunately no bullshit LN tropes here and thank goodness. Sure, this follows the mystery procedural format like any shows in the States but as long as it’s interesting to follow then I’m fine with it and instantly I got to admit I like Sakurako from the start. A raven-haired beauty with a fascination of bones and has a gift of knowing the incidents regarding them and I say its like Bones & House because of that fact. However, there are some things I got against it and in the middle of. Shotaro is really not that interesting of a character since I kept thinking why the show start off with him instead of her because I rather focus on the girl that knows her shit with bones than the average who-gives-a-fuck high schooler. Also, the animation and no doubt, this is pretty to look at but damn those RAINBOW-ASS FILTERS!!! It was like Skittles, taste the rainbow with your eyes even if you don’t want it. Oh, and no, this isn’t GoHands. You would’ve seen a lot of blue but TROYCA…yes, the company whose only other work is Aldnoah.Zero and I hope that they can do a decent job of this and hopefully gain a better reputation than A-1 Pictures.


Yea, I’m going with CONTINUE WEEKLY, mainly because this is the only show I’m watching on Wednesdays so there you go.


Until then, I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid, and I’m off to find Sakurako pics—Erm, I mean, look for more anime to review.
