This mystery anime television series is based on a Japanese novel series written by Shiori Ota and illustrated by Tetsuo. The series, adapted by Troyca, was created in Japanese anime style. It follows the adventures of Sakurako Kujo, a gorgeous if socially inept osteologist (scientist who studies bones), and her high school boy assistant, Sakurako Kujo. Together they solve mysteries that revolve around bones that they uncover. Unraveling these mysteries often takes them into the darker side of humanity where the duo are not afraid to break the rules to solve a case and bring closure to a situation. Rich in Japanese culture, the series includes twelve episodes each with a different mystery to solve. Among others, story lines include solving a hundred year old murder that was thought to be a suicide, saving abused children, helping a girl solve her grandmother's death, helping a friend who thought he was cursed, and helping a woman deal with her husband's death. Regardless of each episode's unique setting and plot, the theme remains the same. Solving mysteries helps people find peace.
