Beautiful Bones -Sakurako’s Investigation- – Episode 1

  • Expository voiceover, never the best sign.
  • Why is there a closeup on the dead cat.
  • I get that the glacial pace is part of the setting, but still.
  • Oh my god, show don’t tell. We get it, she’s aloof and a necrophile.
  • The butterfly stuff was pretty, I guess?
  • Is she seriously in love with human skulls?
  • Apparently Sakurako is the Sherlock Holmes of necrophilia.
  • This is sort of pretty, but it’s so overwritten.
  • It also suffers from making the Watson analogue so very bland.

beautifulbones1I’ll probably give it a few episodes to see what’s up with the whole “we always find human bones” thing.
