When Shoutarou Tatewaki first meets Sakurako Kujou, he knows his life will never be the same. Initially believing her to be responsible for a disappearance in the neighborhood, he later learns of her true talent: analyzing bone specimens. Sakurako has quite the collection of reconstructed animal bones, but she wishes she had more of the human variety, much to the chagrin of those around her. Soon, Shoutarou begins accompanying the eccentric osteologiston the many different unsolved cases she comes across—usually in the form of decomposing bodies. But with so many incidents happening around them, could there be a larger mystery at work in their lives?
Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru is a story of two unlikely partners, each showing in their own way that bones can tell how one died, but only people can tell how they lived.

Bones say a lot!
This is the Live Action anime released in 2015, which in turn is much lower in plot and narrative if compared to the anime, the anime is infinitely superior, had a focused and interesting story throughout its twelve episodes. Already the drama did not have brightness, if it clung to many specific cases getting very limited. The choice of the cast was good, Alisa Mizuki in the role of Sakurako was great, acting also had merits. Unfortunately the drama disappointed me, it was to be something incredible but that was nothing, had history but did not know how to enjoy it. A feather!

"Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru" is another title called "Beautiful Bones". An unique story written by Shiorita. It is a story of two unlikely partners, each showing in their own way that bones can tell how one died, but only people can tell how they lived. Sakurako Kuj is a genius beauty in her mid-twenties whose life is centred around one thing and one thing only: bones. With little tolerance for others, she would be completely isolated in her study full of skeletons if it weren’t for high school boy Shotaro—her new assistant and constant companion. Why exactly she has taken a shine to him remains a mystery, but one thing is clear: Whenever the two go out together, the chances are high that they will come across a human corpse. Excellent performance and story. Love the unique music.

Sakurako Kuj
She is a sharp-witted beautiful woman who comes from a prominent family and lives in a big old house with only a housekeeper as a companion. She has a hobby of collecting the bones of dead animals and reconstructing them. However, she is more interested in human remains. And with her being an osteologist, she also developed forensic skills from her uncle, a prominent forensic scientist in the prefecture, and has helped with many unsolved murders. She has a dislike for interpersonal relationships, although she has a fiance working with the Hokkaido Prefectural Police.

Shatar Tatewaki
He is a high school boy who assists Sakurako in her bone-digging expeditions. It so happens that they always find human remains in the process. He keeps Sakurako in check, as she tends to go crazy and try to keep the human remains for herself.
