It is not easy for me to give 10 out of 10 for a drama but this is definitely 10 out of 10 for everything. I watched this drama when I was 5/6 years old? I still remember the storyline, song, people. When it finished I wanted to watch it again and I was glad it broadcast it on TV again for me.

The actors and actress had chemistry. The is a new case in each episode or in two episodes. Each episode is good to watch and it gets better. I never could guess who the murderer is until the very end. This was my favourite japanese series as a kid and I have got to say that it is still is. Don't get put off because of how old this series is. It is a great series!

Definitely recommend it to people who loves Detective series. Before Galileo, BOSS etc there was the amazing detective Kindaichi!

How did the murder happen?

That's the question every episode.

This drama is fun to watch, the episodes and cases are not connected so there is no big story or a villain to defeat at the end. It's two students solving murder mysteries.
I like those kind of stories where the main characters are not detectives (in this drama Kindaichi is a grandson of a detective but he is a student so technically he has nothing to do with solving murder cases) yet wherever they go, murder is there.
They go on vacation, murder happens.
They go on a treasure hunt, murder happens.
They go somewhere with school, murder happens.
They are in school, murder happens.

I understand that it's the plot but it's funny to see how will murder find them.

A few patterns between episodes I noticed:
- Every episode, it's revenge. Someone killed a person they cared about and now they are back for revenge with an overly complicated plan.
- Not even one murderer or a bad person went to jail because they all die at the end. I might be wrong but I don't remember even one villain that survived.
- At least three people die in an episode.
- Kindaichi and Miyuki can't have one normal vacation.

This drama is dark and messed up.

The fact they went crazy with blood and special effects didn't help but I applaud them for that, the gore makes the drama better.

Some things are disgusting (not murder but some parts of the story) but I still enjoyed the drama because the point of the episodes is to find out how the murder happened and who is the murderer.

Overall, I recommend it to people who like weird murder mysteries.
