And so the mystery comes to an end pretty quickly. It actually wasn’t that surprising given that the ME finishes her autopsy by saying “see you in two weeks”, meaning that a new body will need to be examined in two episodes. I’m actually a little disappointed in myself for not suspecting the three students that ask about Kobayashi being taken into by the police (the culprit turns out to be one of them). I should have been more suspicious of their questioning and the fact that they weren’t silhouettes like the other students. I got too distracted by the teacher’s lousy acting when discovering the phone…it actually made her the suspect in my eyes. I didn’t realize that she was helping solve the crime.
I still think this show is interesting. My current working strategy for the next mystery will be to suspect all of the revealed characters, especially the ones that are revealed but not yet named. I can’t imagine they’ll make it so easy next time, though…right? Well, call me a sucker for mysteries, but I’d say this series has me on board. I’m really looking forward to how these mysteries turn out. Also now that Kobayashi is somewhat accepted, does this mean we get to learn more about who Akechi is? A good detective usually has his quirks, right?
