“In a dystopian future, detective Shinjuurou Yuuki—known by some as the “Defeated Detective”—solves mysteries throughout Tokyo. Aided by his odd associate Inga, Shinjuurou’s insight and ingenuity in cracking cases, particularly homicides, lead to numerous mysteries solved and culprits caught. However, his partner seems to have some other, more sinister intentions for the people they catch, and the truth of the assistant’s identity and motivation is shrouded in secrecy.” (myanimelist)
Un-Go is a short but really great mystery anime. If you lived with me, you would know that I have a weird fixation on mysteries. If it’s a murder mystery, I’ll always give it a chance (Bones, NCIS, Lucifer, etc). But there’s a caveat for me, it has to be good! I won’t watch just anything; The characters must be interesting! Un-Go definitely doesn’t disappoint in this aspect. Inga is especially my favorite character. Let’s just say there’s a little surprise lying in wait for the audience about Inga.
Its length is also a perk for me because I’m not stuck watching arc after arc wondering when the villain is going to be caught. After 11 episodes, it’s over; short but satisfying.
