otakunick anime reviews (Un-Go)
Hey guys it's me Otakunick here with a brand new anime review for you guys. I know its about damn time I review a new anime and not just old shit iv watched years ago right. Well then how about we get right into it with the story.
"UN-GO" is a full-fledged detective story about a detective and handsome boy combo who tackle the world's most difficult crimes together for reasons of their own.
The profession of private detective fell out of favor long ago, and yet, that's how the young man, Shinjurou Yuuki identifies himself. With his superior deductive powers, Shinjurou solves various challenging cases. Meanwhile, Inga, an attractive young lad, serves as Shinjurou's "buddy". But contrary to his cute looks, he's a sharp, arrogant rogue. Why Inga sticks with Shinjurou is as yet unknown.
The setting of the story is a postwar, future Tokyo that still bears the scars of war. Ruling the land is Media King Rinroku Kaishou, who through politics and industry has the communications infrastructure under his thumb. Kaishou has used a clear head and the massive amount of information at his fingertips to lead to the solution of a great number of cases. But there's an underside to Kaishou's brilliant deduction work, which is that Shinjurou Yuuki, "the Last Great Detective", is the one who actually uncovered "the truth" in those cases.
However, the public doesn't know this and thus refers to Shinjurou as the "Defeated Detective". Still, Shinjurou, together with Inga, can't help but search for the truth. so yea I may not have sed this befor but i like detective storys. But for the most part the ones i watch are made in the west so i was rely pulled in when i heard about Un-Go. And let me say this story is great they mix things up by adding bulth supernatural and sci-fi elements to make for a rely compelling story.
The art as a vary persona-esc feel to it at lest with the leads. With if I say so myself can be a bit weird when compared to the more normal charter designs that almost every other charter has. Now then don't get me wrong its not that big of a deal but I prefer to see things to be uniform when it comes to charter dosing. So if you have the main charter look like he came from a persona game then the whole cast shud as well.
The voice work is good cant say i have any real grips with it. But at the same time its not rely wowing me. So basically its just good voice actors doing good work nothing more nothing less. Same with the sound track its not all that great but at the same time its not taking home the worst OST ever award ether.
So all and all i say id you like s good PI story pick this anime up its competently done with sum good art and ok music. But remember if you pic it up do so for the story and the script because that is where this anime rely shines.
