Editorial Reviews

Ah, how the mighty have fallen! Caged inside a little boy’s body and banished to Earth by the almighty Odin, the still-proud-and-powerful Loki now runs the Enjaku Detective Agency. Joined by his trusted assistant Yamino and a beautiful (but accident prone) high school girl named Mayura, Loki earns a living probing the darkest corners of the paranormal, the occult, and the otherwise peculiar. And yet the one metaphysical mystery that involves him directly remains unsolved: what has he done to be exiled to Earth? How can he return to Asgard? Why do the other Norse Gods want him dead? Join in the adventures as our mystery trio take on hair-raising hauntings, possessed dolls, vengeful birds of prey, and penny-pinching deities, in this, the first installment of Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok, brought to you by the director of Orphen, King of Bandit Jing and Slayers!

Customer Reviews

Interesting and fun show!

Sometimes I get the feeling they were trying to be funny... but don't really understand humour.

I bought the edition with the collectors box and it was great, the collectors box is huge.

I just got this and have found it to be just as entertaining and humorous as
Full Metal Panic Fumoffu,and Maburaho with the magical hi jinx. The series
follows mostly with Loki and the mystery of why he was banished to the human world by Odin and why the other norse gods are trying to kill him. Along the series Loki will get into his group a young female wannabe detective by the name of Mayura Daidoji and they are also helped by the god Thor(But known to the other humans he deals with as Narugami). The series is funny with a serious storyline built in to it but nothing to hardcore like Ghost in the Shell or Death Note. The series box is good and the extra are decent but little which I mean is that you have the standard trailers and text less intro/ending songs you do get some commentaries from the Japanese director/producers/and some of the actors.
The video is full screen with 5.1 English audio and 2.0 Japanese audio both the English and Japanese voice actors are superb for this series.
The price is a little step so all I can say is wait until either the price goes down,you are willing to pay the price,or you find it at a store near you but an any case a great series well worth it...

I grew up with an interest in Norse mythology, so when I saw an anime with both 'Loki' and 'Ragnarok' in the title, I was immediately interested. Reading the description I knew that not to expect too much of a connection to the old stories, but I thought it would fun none the less. I am glad I picked it up :)

Loki, the god of mischief, was cast from the world of the gods down to the human world. In order to return he must collect the spirits of evil that posses human hearts. The thing is, for reasons unknown, during his stay in the human world he is bound to the form of a child. In order to hunt down his quarry, he starts a detective agency and somehow manages to get stuck with a teenage girl named Mayura as an assistant. Things aren't going to bad for Loki, until the other Norse gods and goddesses start showing up trying to kill him!

The Nose mythology was my favorite part of this series, but I also enjoyed the plot and characters. Loki is an entertaining character and Mayura an endearing one. The supporting cast is large and diverse, and it is always fun when a new god is introduced. I think this series would be most entertaining for people who know a little bit about the myths and legends this series draws from. I showed it to one friend who knew pretty much nothing about Norse mythology, and she found it cute and entertaining, but wasn't all that thrilled with it. But my sisters, who are all familiar with the Norse gods, all really enjoyed it.

If you enjoy the series and decide to hunt down the manga, be aware of two things - first, the manga this is based on is actually called Mythical Detective Loki and Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok is the sequel (which the anime has no relation too).

This is child detective presented piece which doesn't involve any real detective work or for that matter, any real child detective like Case Closed doesn't.
There is a Norse mythology theme but that doesn't really bring anything to the table.
It is not bad and it is not great, it is predictable with a few likeable characters and the dumb as a box of rocks female lead.
There is some humor but not enough to call this a comedy. All in all you will not hate this piece but you will not rave about it either.
The voice acting will be familiar and is just fine for the most part.

My daughter picked the Loki detective up Vol 1-Vol 5

I wasn't too thrilled when she showed them to me but once

we started watching them I could not wait to get home from work

to see the next vol. I was told that Vol 6 would be coming out

sometime later in Month of July but Vol 7 would not be out til

Sept. I like it a lot better when you have so many vols to a set,

if they would have them where you can buy them together and not have to wait. This was a great set and I would highly recommend everyone who likes norse gods and mysteries to buy this. You have several gods who are trying to kill Loki the god of mischief. As an adult he was a ladysman, but Odin put him in the body of a child and the ladies just think he is cute. When Loki is in his adult body all the girls fall over themselves. Loki battles evil and keeps it in flames in the storeroom in the basement of his home and when he collects enough he hopes to return to his normal size and return home to Asgard. Odin sends many gods to try to kill him and Loki is confused as to what he has done to deserve banishment and to have to defend himself from the other gods. Several of the gods that are on earth ended up being his friend and help him when the Gods sent to kill him come after him. Really a great addition to your DVD collection!!!

If you loved Case Closed or Spiral than this anime I recommend to you. It's mystery with a dash of comedy and Norse gods, a strange combination you might think but it actually works quite nicely. I loved volumes 1&2 and now I'm anxious to get volume 3, this series makes me giggle like a little school girl with it's humor and it's childish looks make me just want to smother the characters in hugs (especially Loki).
