Review: Gosick ep 1

Plot: GOSICK takes place in 1924 in a small, made-up European country of Sauville. The story centers on Kazuya Kujo, the third son of a Japanese Imperial soldier, who is a transfer student to St. Marguerite Academy, where urban legends and horror stories are all the rage. There he meets Victorique, a mysterious yet beautiful and brilliant girl who never comes to class and spends her days reading the entire content of the library or solving mysteries that even detectives can't solve.

 I like mysteries! From the look of this first episode, it has the feel of Professor Layton (the video game), and it perks up my interest =) The starting of the series is abit unnatural, because it doesn't really make sense. Kazuya Kujo is dubbed by the other students to be a character in one of the urban legends, and his teacher? told him to read up more on the urban lengends and horror stories so as to make friends with his classmates (weird right? What kind of advice is this?) So, he went to the library in search of horror stories, and due to some circumstances, he ran up the library stairs ( something like harry potter, but only longer) and he reached the top which has flowers blooming (like a garden). Okay, I want to rant a bit! The library is awesome! How I wish NUS has this kind of library! OMG la.
 
Anyway, he met this girl called Victorique, and apparently she is his classmate. Why she is up there is still a mystery, even at the end of the episode. And Victorique told Kujo that she has been waiting for him, and asked him to meet her the next day. Second meeting was kind of funny too, especially when Victorique was rolling around in the (garden). There's this try-to-act-handsome policeman who came up via the lift (like OMG again?) and asked Victorique about some crime, and she solved it in a matter of seconds?
 
But the first case didn't end there, and Victorique and Kujo boarded a ship in search of the truth...
 
I'm definitely going to continue this ^.^
