Review: Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro (2007-2008)

Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro ~Neuro: Supernatural Detective~ (2007-2008) is a Japanese supernatural detective anime about a demon searching for the ultimate mystery. In English, the title translates to "Demonic Detective Nougami Neuro." This series contain 25 episodes.

Yako Katsuragi's father was murdered in a locked room. Then, she meets Neuro Nougami, who is a demon from Hell who feasts on puzzles and riddles. He forces Yako to act as a detective so that he can solve mysteries. He comes to the human world because he has eaten every mystery in the demon world. He featss on mysteries offered by humans who release negative energy from their planned crimes. Yako teams up with Neuro to solve crimes for his appetite and investigate her father's mysterious murder.

After solving many crimes, a new case causes a criminal named X to take an interest in Neuro as a demon. Nonetheless, Neuro accepts his challenges and defeats him easily. Later on, an evil organization of super humans initiate their plans to destroy the human race. Will Neuro and Yako be able to defeat the organization before it is too late?

The anime is awesome to describe it in one word. It is entertaining, and it will keep you at the edge of your seat. Although the weekly villains was a nuisance at first, the Arcs shown at each episode will keep you coming back for more. This anime is sure to add a little more flavor to your anime collection. The show will make you shake, scream, laugh and you will get creep out so much that you will just want to re-watch it! I highly recommend this detective series.
