GOSICK Collection 2 Review | Capsule Computers

Luke Halliday writes:

"What make’s a mystery series good and what makes a mystery series bad? Well a good mystery series doesn’t have predictable conclusions to the central mystery. A good mystery is one that the audience is never smart enough to figure out. It leaves them completely in the palm of the creators hand as they take them for a wild ride but never letting them outsmart them. A good mystery surprises you. A bad mystery is obvious the antithesis of this, it’s obvious from the start what the solution to the puzzle is and the audience is simply watching along as the characters slowly figure out what the viewer knew all along. The characters should always be a step ahead of the viewer. GOSICK makes this mistake in it’s ill-fated second half. The mystique of the it’s first half fades into what amounts to nothing short of droll predictability."

GOSICK sounds like it's completely GOing away and being SICK.

This guy is spouting nothing but utter nonsense. GOSICK is a great series. He just keeps repeating the same thing over and over using "edumacated" words, only used to make the article sound intelligent and fluff up the number count. I can't stand useless articles such as this one.

Yeah this show was pretty good. I didnt think i would like it at first but i was wrong. After this series they had so many clones come out. I cant think of that NEET anime name atm.

Yeah thats the show. LOL. People called that a Gosick clone thatsjust in modern times.

This series is much more deserving than a 5.5/10, but that's me.
