Beautiful Bones: Sakurako’s Investigation, also known as A Corpse is Buried Under Sakurako’s Feet or Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru in Japan, is a series that has no manga related to it. I’ve noticed that there is an increase of animes like that lately. There are 12 episodes in the season, and I’m rooting for a 2nd.
The series follows Tatewaki Shoutarou, a high school student, who is good friends with Kujō Sakurako, an osteologist who finds bones beautiful. The pair of them end up wrapped up in many murder cases and mysteries due to Sakurako’s affinity to bones. Shoutarou learns a lot about bones while trying to keep Sakurako in check and calling the police when they discover human remains.
This is very similar to an animated version of the american TV series Bones, but better and with a lot less romance. It’s very good, but has an open ending so I’m really hoping for a season 2. I love this anime’s style and visual effects. *thumbs up*
