"Cutting-edge Victorian science meets cunningly plotted mystery in this new Canadian television drama. Detective William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) is an investigator in Toronto in 1895, using then unconventional means to solve crimes: fingerprinting, blood testing, and trace evidence. He crosses paths with some of the eras most famous figures including Arthur Conan Doyle and Prince Alfred. Stylish period thriller"[/span]Netflix has 7 seasons atm.
Started watching this because was sick ( damn you pollen! ) an its a really good show. It does a wink an nod to the viewers every now an again with out being to cheesey. Fans of Detective Conan should love this series. Its still ongoing to as I believe season 9 is ongoing now.Any anime fan who enjoys Mysteries an Detecive anime should enjoy this. It had a cross over with another show I was watching that lead me to it.
Really one of the few shows that use time an has time progress by the 7th season were in 1901 an it starts 1895. Time progresses an it means something. The science an tec of the time changes an so do the stories. Its also one of the few shows as it progresses it seems to have a bigger budget.
Detective Conan fans should note as well it eploys the spiral story telling method of introducing new characters an places an as the spiral grows it revisits them. Show also deals with issues of the time with out being preachy or pushing a political agenda. A rather rare idea these days it seems.
Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.

Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.

Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.

Taka: What? That sounds so weird.

Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!

Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)

Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.

Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.
Feb 17, 2020 5:24:39 GMT
Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...

Dream: ...manipulation last week.
