The Detective Is Already Dead -Review & Comparison

Detective Is Already Dead is one of the fresh anime out there. The anime was released a week ago. There are only two episodes till now. Yet the anime is getting a lot of popularity. It is also a detective type anime like Detective Conan and Death Note. So how does it stand against these two big anime? Let’s find out.

About The Detective Is Already Dead

The Detective Is Already Dead starts with Kimihiko Kimizuka who considers himself as a trouble magnet. The story starts with Kimihiko Kimizuka in an airplane. There he meets a girl Siesta (a code name). She addresses herself as a legendary detective. She also makes Kimihiko, her sidekick. Later they successfully stop the plane from hijacking. Siesta starts living with Kimiko in his apartment. She explains that she’s fighting against an organisation “SPES” which converts humans to half androids. After that they also solve a high school drug case.

As the title suggests “The Detective Is Already Dead”, Siesta actually dies in the first episode of the anime and the story moves three years forward. Kimihiko has been narrating the story since the beginning. Kimihiko explains that Siesta dies fighting the SPES organization.

Comparison

The Detective Is Already Dead comparison with Detective Conan and Death Note

The Detective Is Already Dead gets a good start so how does this anime stand out against one of the best detective anime; Detective Conan or Death Note.

The beginning of these anime is abrupt. The Detective Is Already Dead begins with Kimihiko Kimizuka who is a trouble maker and has no knowledge of investigation. On the other hand, Shinichi Kudo (Jimmy Kudo in english dubbed) is already good in investigation and detective stuff. Same goes for Light Yagami from Death Note. He is also one of the smartest students in Japan. His detection skills are also sharp. So the main character in The Detective Is Already Dead is different from these two others although we see he has become a little intelligent after he loses Siesta.

Detective Conan and The Detective Is Already Dead is still an ongoing series. Compared to Detective Conan, The Detective Is Already Dead has very few episodes. Right now we have yet to see the main story of the anime in future.
