Kamisama no Memo-chou was one of the series I was most looking forward to this season and it doesn’t disappoint.
The story is about a high school boy who gets involved with a NEET detective girl named Alice and also meets her circle of friends. He ends up becoming her assistant and helps to tackle any new cases they get.
This series feels almost like Gosick in a modern setting since Alice is similar to Victorique in many ways including their proficiency in solving mysteries. However, Alice relies on her network of computers to feed her the necessary information while also using her assistant/friends to do outside tasks since she usually stays in her room. The first case was a good warm-up and leaves me highly anticipating the future cases they will be called on to solve.
Oh, Alice also keeps a refrigerator stocked with only cans of what looks like Dr. Pepper. I wonder how many people felt a craving and went to go drink some after watching an episode.
