We have a detective agency and some boy who can’t die.
I’m going to be honest that this is probably the most interesting first episode so far (though there are still a number of shows to come out). That said, I’m not holding out a lot of hope that this one is going to maintain that level of energy or hold my interest for the whole season (please surprise me, I’d really enjoy that). From the opening monologue (which is your typical woe is me from a kid who is unable to die) the show at least managed to distinguish itself from all the other first episodes I’d watched this week and following that by dropping a robot from a blimp into the town and seeing the fate of the missing dog and I was kind of sold on continuing this series for a bit. The music in this is fairly generic but at least gave it a sense of pace and again, it’s one of the few shows this season where I’ve actually paid attention to the music. In honesty though, this first episode reminds me a lot of the first season on Bungou Stray Dogs (though it doesn’t seem to be trying quite so hard for the laugh out loud humour) and while I’m not going to judge it because of that, I am going into this expecting that it won’t be able to maintain the tone or pace.
