The genre of the show is a combination of action, comedy, and supernatural. It was directed by Shin Oonuma and written by Michiko Yokote.
The story revolves around a high school girl named Haruaki Yachi, who receives a mysterious package from his father who is abroad. The package contains a black cube, which is cursed and has the power to transform into a beautiful girl named Fear. Fear, being cursed, has a unique ability that anyone who comes into contact with her black blood will experience intense pain and suffering. Haruaki decides to help Fear lift the curse and break free from the curse of the cube.
The show depicts the adventures of Haruaki and Fear when they encounter Butei, an organization that trains detectives and spies. Haruaki and Fear join forces with three Butei, Konoha Muramasa, Kirika Ueno, and Tsurugi Meister, who possess unique abilities and weapons. The group fights against other cursed objects and individuals who threaten humanity, all while trying to lift Fear's curse.
The main character, Haruaki Yachi, is a kind-hearted, easy-going high school boy who lives alone due to his father's absence. He is initially confused when he receives the mysterious cube from his father, but he quickly adapts to his new situation and takes on the role of Fear's protector. He is an excellent cook and loves to experiment with new recipes.
Fear, the protagonist of the show, is a cursed object that can transform into a beautiful girl. She is initially fearful and skeptical of Haruaki's intentions, but as the series progresses, she develops a close relationship with him. Fear is haunted by her past and carries a lot of emotional baggage. She also has an insatiable curiosity about the outside world, and her desire to learn more about human emotions drives her character development.
Konoha Muramasa, one of the Butei, is a well-known detective who's famous for her deductive skills. Kirika Ueno is a skilled assassin who is capable of taking down large groups of enemies. Tsurugi Meister, on the other hand, is an expert in handling cursed objects and weapons. The dynamic between the five main characters is the driving force behind the show.
The animation in C3 is visually stunning, with bright colors and sharp character designs. The action scenes are well-animated and filled with plenty of fast-paced sequences. The show also features a catchy opening theme and an emotional ending theme that complement the mood of the series.
Aside from the action scenes, the show also has its fair share of comedic moments. The humor in the series comes from different characters and their personalities. Haruaki is known for his laid-back approach to things, while Fear's lack of knowledge about human emotions leads to some hilarious misunderstandings.
