Pros:This is a different type of mystery anime. This anime’s episodes are divided into different arcs. All of these arcs start the same way with the same characters, but focus on different aspects and have different outcomes. It is like different small stories based on the same settings. It is a very bloody anime and a very good one everything makes sense after watching the second season.
Cons: Everything is a confusing mess. If you don’t continue watching the series after the first season you will be confused sooo very confused. Make sure to continue watching to understand the entire amazing story.
