What would happen if Sherlock were to transforms into a tiny young woman? He'd become the mystery-solving Victorique du Blois from "Gosick," an anime focusing on a series of mysteries around a school and its surrounding population. While most anime shows are based on comics, "Gosick" is based on a number of novels; the original series was written by Japanese author Kazuki Sakuraba. The show is about Kazuya Kujo, a son of a Japanese soldier living in 1924. After dropping his military school duties and responsibilities to study abroad, the young man finds himself at St. Margeurite Academy, a place shrouded in mystery and local folklore. While investigating the "golden fairy" that supposedly haunts the school's enormous library, Kujo finds Victorique dwelling at the top of the library. A pint-sized girl with extremely long hair, a sweet-tooth, and an aptitude for solving mysteries (even smoking a pipe as she thinks and reveals the truth of each mystery), Victorique bonds with Kujo - though she continues to show affection through the show by calling Kujo a number of names and speaking down on him as she solves the various mysteries the two characters are dragged into. It's as the show progresses that Kujo learns more about Victorique - where her brilliance comes from, why she avoids people at all costs, why she is essentially a prisoner within the very school she's enrolled it, and, as his adventures with Victorique draw to a close, what it means to fight to survive.

The show's episodes are a mix of story-driven and stand alone mysteries; what unites these two types of episodes is the fact that each one highlights the evolving relationship between the two main characters. In addition to its mingling cast of notably brilliant and average characters, the world in "Gosick" is a world where legends and lore are a strange mix of fact and fiction. It's filled with secrets, many of which are dark and twisted; it is, in many ways, a fine blend of a silly comedy and decent melodrama.

As Victorique leaves the library tower to investigate the mystery written in Leviathan's book, she meets Avril for the first time and quickly gets into a fight with her.

Finally, a mystery man with some connection to Victorique closes in on her!

  • Avril has returned to the academy early on account of her infatuation with Kazuya. After seeing a movie together, the two of them come across a clock tower that's exactly the same as the one in the movie. Inside, they find the workshop of Leviathan the Alchemist. Meanwhile, at the library, Victorique is hit on the head by a falling book, which turns out to be the memoirs of none other than Leviathan!

  • It's summer vacation at the academy and all of the students are going on retreats from the heat, except for Victorique, who is forced to spend the boring break alone there. However, after Kazuya turns down Avril's invitation, he pays Victorique a visit, bringing along the most recent goodies sent from Japan. Among them is the answer to the puzzle Victorique posed to Kazuya's second elder brother. Under the midsummer sun, Kazuya's thoughts go to earlier summer days in Japan.

  • A visitor comes to the academy and it turns out to be Jacqueline, wife of the police superintendent general and seemingly close acquaintance of Inspector Blois.

  • Two visiting outsiders have been murdered at the village's midsummer festival, but Victorique solves the mystery of their deaths.

  • Kazuya and Victorique arrive at the Village of the Gray Wolves. The villagers speak of a maid, Cordelia Gallo, who murdered the former village elder, Theodore.

  • Ghost story-loving Avril tells Kazuya about the rumor of a gray wolf who can speak the human tongue. Soon after, the two of them become involved in the theft of a Dresden plate at an open-air market.
