Mouryou no Hako

Mouryou no Hako

Mystery, Supernatural, Horror - 2008 (TV)
Ranking: 852

Between August and October, 1952, a series of unusual crimes takes place in Musashino and Mitaka: the attempted murder of 14-year-old Kanako Yuzuki, Kanakos abduction from the strange research hospital where she was recovering, then abductions of other girls, followed by their severed limbs in custom-fitted boxes being placed in surrounding towns. News editor Morihiko Toriguchi and crime fiction writer Tatsumi Sekiguchi investigate with the help of onmyōji Akihiko Chuzenji. Meanwhile, Tōkyō police detective Shutaro Kiba searches for Kanako, despite Kanagawa police having jurisdiction, and the lawyer for the estate of Kanakos grandfather hires private investigator Reijiro Enokizu to find Kanako, as well. Their investigation uncovers bizarre truths and dark family secrets along the way. (Source: ANN)

Reviews

   

I will not declare any kind of perfection for it, it gets lost a little up itself paying tribute to the great writers whose poignant environment inspired it, but it's definitely worth investing in. Plus one star if you read textbooks for fun or really like to work for your entertainment. Minus two stars if you just want light entertainment since only the visuals are a source of that. - ThemAnime

    

Analogously, the show is like an antique vase: it can go unnoticed by people very easily, especially when there are other more well-known ones that would probably catch their attention. However, it pays to have a keen eye and if anyone wants to enjoy something decent and different, then this is something worth checking out. - Nihon Review
