Random Curiosity

GOSICK – 09

「人食いデパートに青薔薇(ばら)は咲く」 (Hito-kui Depāto ni Ao Bara wa Saku)
“Blue Roses Bloom in the Cannibal Department Store”

By the power of plot, Kujou is conveniently turned into a magnet for mysteries, getting involved with strange cases that remind me of Dr. Who episodes.

GOSICK – 08

「過去の王国に遠吠(ぼ)えがこだまする」 (Kako no Ōkoku ni Tōboe ga Kodama Suru)
“Howling Echoes From the Kingdom of the Past”

Wow. It was a bad idea trying to piece together a mystery in GOSICK, because I pretty much got it all wrong. NEVER AGAIN.

GOSICK – 07

「夏至祭に神託はくだされる」 (Geshi-sai ni Shintaku wa Kudasareru)
“A Divine Revelation is Given at the Summer Solstice Festival”

In a village full of blondies with ponytails coupled with having the production of BONES, it felt weird to keep thinking I was seeing the distant cousins of the Elric family.

GOSICK – 06

「灰色の狼は同胞を呼びよせる」 (Haiiro no Ōkami wa Dōhō o Yobi Yoseru)
“The Gray Wolf Summons a Compatriot”

Almost unexpectedly, the story completely shifts focus to our golden haired heroine, and sure enough, my interest meter skyrockets. Whether it’s the sudden fragility she displays, or the endearing blushes exposing her dere, Victorique rightfully takes reign in being the center of attention. After all, who’s the goth(s)ic(k) one?

GOSICK – 05

「廃倉庫には謎の幽霊がいる」 (Haisōko ni wa Nazo no Yūrei ga Iru)
“A Mysterious Ghost Is in the Abandoned Warehouse”

Kujou, I believe the word you’re looking for is fabulous. Grevil has lost his fabulous.

GOSICK – 04

「金色(こんじき)の糸はつかのまを切り裂く」 (Konjiki no Ito wa Tsuka no Ma o Kirisaku)
“The Golden Thread Destroys the Moment”

How obviously suspicious does Avril Bradley act? About a 13/10 on the “I CAN SEE THE ENDING” scale. But then again, that’s what they want me to think isn’t it?

GOSICK – 03

「野兎(のうさぎ)達は朝陽の下で約束をかわす」 (Nousagi-tachi wa Asahi no Shita de Yakusoku o Kawasu)
“The Hares Break a Promise Under the Morning Sun”

The first half was an absolute thrill, with BONES action, high flying emotions, and some actual suspense. Although, I am curious if a tennis ball in an armpit can really halt your heartbeat in your arm even momentarily, so I will try it later for science.

GOSICK – 02

「死者の魂が難破船をおしあげる」 (Shisha no Tamashii ga Nanpasen Oshiageru)
“The Souls of the Dead Raise a Shipwreck”

And so, the classic mystery format begins, with your token screaming girls, writings on the wall, people getting killed, and in the center of it all, an unfazed gothic loli. I think I’m hooked.

GOSICK – 01

「黒い死神は金色の妖精を見つける」 (Kuroi Shinigami wa Kin-iro no Yousei wo Mitsukeru)
“The Black Reaper Finds the Golden Fairy”

Set in a fake nation smack dab between almost all that is Europe, a made up school with made up char- oh wait, did I go too far? Let’s just say it’s not a high school in Japan. I don’t know who or what was more serious about mysteries in this production, but someone out there wasn’t kidding around when they wanted to adapt GOSICK. The story does not wait for you, the characters do not wait for you, and you will get a mystery in the first episode, like it or not.
