Average Rating

Kaito Daimon would be a completely average high school student except for one thing: he's a 'demon' at solving puzzles. Kaito is so brilliant, in fact, that when he's asked to take some 'special' tests of his unique ability, he immediately suspects that the test itself is a test. Kaito suddenly finds himself caught up in a lethal Philosopher's Puzzle made by the sinister group POG, a murderous maze of trap upon trap, where failing to solve the secret correctly will result in death! Fortunately, Kaito's skills prove up to the first test, both for himself and his childhood friend Nanoha, who is also caught up in the deadly scheme. But now that he has been designated as a Solver, he is pulled into a new life where he must travel the world with other Solvers, attempting to solve the latest deadly riddles left by POG. There's a new conundrum around every corner and each deception could lead to death, but once a riddle has been posed, you can count on Kaito to unfold, unravel and unlock it!

Puzzle fanatics going to the extreme. It got very repetitive (especially the seasons after)


Cliched characters but, I love the unique art style & story.


Lots of great actually solvable puzzles and puzzle freaks going high extreme. While it may seem intelligent, it’s not very much.


Just because you get the title of Einstein does not mean you need to expose your tongue to the world…


Qui aurait cru que résoudre des puzzles sur une OST endiablée soit si cool ? Peut-être parce qu’ils sont mortels… littéralement.


At every corner it had me trying to solve the puzzles faster than the MC but few times I’d succeed.. It was full of thrills, enjoy it!


Quite interesting, I want to solve puzzle like this
