Kazuya Kujou is a foreign student at Saint Marguerite Academy, a luxurious boarding school in the Southern European country of Sauville. Originally from Japan, his jet-black hair and dark brown eyes cause his peers to shun him and give him the nickname "Black Reaper," based on a popular urban legend about the traveler who brings death in the spring. On a day like any other, Kujou visits the school's extravagant library in search of ghost stories. However, his focus soon changes as he becomes curious about a golden strand of hair on the stairs. The steps lead him to a large garden and a beautiful doll-like girl known as Victorique de Blois, whose complex and imaginative foresight allows her to predict their futures, now intertwined. With more mysteries quickly developing—including the appearance of a ghost ship and an alchemist with the power of transmutation—Victorique and Kujou, bound by fate and their unique skills, have no choice but to rely on each other.

Absolutely beautiful.


One of the most attractive mystery shows in Anime not because of it’s mysteries but because of how it encourages you to follow along in it.


I’m a huge mystery nerd, so I loved this. Some cute moments, some emotional moments, and lots of mysteries for the characters to solve.


Gothic = ゴシック = goshikku = Gosick. It’s a pretty good ~Victorian mystery series. Not a lot of substance but an entertaining watch for sure.


Very underrated. A bit of a weird ending but great nonetheless.


Makes me GO SICK. Starts off strong but quickly implodes as each successive episode of the final third of the show is worse than the last.


ho ho ho loli dedective is on the way
