This review is from: Heavens Memo Pad Collection [DVD] (DVD)
This series is beautifully presented and genuinely brilliant. Without getting unbearably heavy it focuses on credible crime stories set in a recognisable contemporary world where young people slip into dangerous addictions, teenage girls are trapped into prostitution, the true geniuses are people you would never look at twice, and it takes courage and determination to escape if you land in the wrong place at the wrong time. Apart from the themes and setting the plotting, pace and fantastic sense of humour make it, for me, one of the best anime of the last couple of years. So ignore the disturbing implications of the design on the CD label showing a seven-year-old in moe pyjamas clutching a teddy bear. The designer must have seen a vague description of Alice the NEET detective and misunderstood it. The production team deserved better.
