Beautiful bones: Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru

Hey all, second post from me, because I think this blog needs an anime review to wrap up the day.

Originated from a light novel. Anime aired for only 12 eps. There is a live-action drama going on, I might watch that one, judging from how much I love this show. The show was in Fall 2015 so it felt like a pretty nice wrap up for 2015. It was refreshing.

Storyline is great. The setting, concept are extremely unique. The plot is pretty nicely executed. The pacing is also just right, but 12 eps still felt really short, it was very addictive when I watched it 2015, one of the best shows from the season too. The character development is really great. Comedy sometimes are there, but this show is more of the serious side of things, which is great. Character relationships is a bit puzzling though. Normally shows main characters have some kind of romantic relationship, but this one is different. An osteologist and a high school student being friends, and the esteologist has a fiance, making things a lot more awkward. I watched the show while shipping the duo. The ending was the typical ending, but it felt a bit bitter because of the dark nature of the show and the really short 12ep count. Overall, it was nice, I totally enjoyed it.

Animations by Troyca. Their second anime but their first time doing it alone. Their first anime was in cooperation with A-1 Pictures for Aldnoah Zero. The animations were great. Character designs were nicely done. Colors were vivid and it looked damn sharp.

Music is nice. OP and ED were nicely done. BGMs by Technoboys Pulcraft Green-Fund. It was decent. I have always like the BGMs they composed so far.

Cast list is pretty great. Enoki Junya, Ito Shizuka, Imamura Ayaka, Ishida Akira, Inoue Kikuko, Takahashi Hiroki, Kakihara Tatsuya, Koyasu Takehito, Ueda Yuji, Tsunematsu Ayumi, Hirakawa Daisuke, Yashima Sarara. The cast list were well picked. Ito Shizuka fitted her role pretty nicely.


Story: 8.5/10

Art: 8/10

Music: 8/10

VAs: 9/10

Highly recommended, its pretty short, so it’s not very time consuming.
