Hello, for this week i have detective story for you all: Beautiful Bones -Sakurako’s Investigation


Oct 8, 2015 to Dec 24, 2015 (Fall 2015)


When Shoutarou Tatewaki first meets Sakurako Kujou, he knows his life will never be the same. Initially believing her to be responsible for a disappearance in the neighborhood, he later learns of her true talent: analyzing bone specimens. Sakurako has quite the collection of reconstructed animal bones, but she wishes she had more of the human variety, much to the chagrin of those around her.

Soon, Shoutarou begins accompanying the eccentric osteologist on the many different unsolved cases she comes across—usually in the form of decomposing bodies. But with so many incidents happening around them, could there be a larger mystery at work in their lives?

Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru is a story of two unlikely partners, each showing in their own way that bones can tell how one died, but only people can tell how they lived.


Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru was an excellent series in my opinion. Some people had a problem with the story’s pacing but I found this to be a strong positive point of the show. The way that most episodes slowed down and focused on mundane tasks or doing favors for friends such as Kougami grounded the show with a strong sense of realism for me. I don’t need grand, over-the-top flashy action scenes or high-octane, intense thrills. This show understands that death doesn’t need to be flashy, it can have a soothing aura to it as well. This show heavily focuses on the theme of death, and it presents it as something that doesn’t need to be feared, sometimes it brings people closer together. This show is full of real human beings and their unique stories and I loved it so much. But for all of you who wanted a ridiculous killing spree of a series maybe you’ll get that in the second season.
