    So just who are the Blade Children, why are they cursed, and what does our hero have to do with all this?

    Those questions lie at the heart of "Spiral," an intricate mystery series with solid animation, a compellingly dark mystery.... and no ending. Despite a distinct lack of answers at the finale, it is a solid anime, with well-drawn characters, amazing art and some nail-biting suspense during a few of these arcs.

    Two years ago, Ayumu Narumi got a phone call from his older, genius brother Kiyotaka. He announced he was investigating the "Blade Children," and then vanished.

    Much later, a girl named Sayoko falls from a balcony -- and Ayumu seems like the only possible suspect, even though the police inspector is his sister-in-law Madoka. But Ayumu has the same astounding analytical skills as his older brother, and he soon solves a pair of crimes connected to Sayoko -- her fall, and a locked-room murder -- only to find that they both involve the Blade Children.

    Unfortunately, the Blade Children are getting interested in Ayumu -- first a "smart bomb" is planted in a piano concert, and then a weird boy lures Ayumu to an abandoned school, playing a deadly game with the young genius. And after a teacher is murdered, Ayumu is pulled into a deadly mind game with a precocious Blade Child. She sabotages his self-esteem, and then snares him into a deadly cat-and-mouse game.

    But even as Ayumu outwits the Blade Children, he learns that another deadly faction is involved with the Blade Children -- the Hunters, who kill them and anyone they are allied with. Even worse, he has a new enemy among the Blade Children -- Kanone, a young man who believes that the Blade Children "must not live." And since Ayumu may be their only hope, he is now Kanone's enemy...

    Ayumu is a prodigy; but he's always getting compared to his brother. Ayumu's brother was a famous detective and pianist who went missing. He left a message saying that he was going to solve the mystery of the blade children; and then he vanished. Ayumu now lives with his sister in law. One day the blade children appear and tell Ayumu that he is the only one who can save them from their cursed fate. Along with his girlfriend Hiyono, Ayumu attempts to solve the mystery of the blade children. Many deaths and tragedies will stand in their way.

    This anime is very well done. From the animation to the character creation and music. It has a great murder mystery vibe to it. It took a clever fellow to come up with the stuff in Spiral. I was captivated from the 1st episode to the very end. Which brings me to my only complaint. This anime has no ending.The 2 main goals of the anime were to discover what the Blade Children were and to find out what happened to Ayumu's brother. Neither of these things happen. I loved this anime, but with these things remaining unresolved I cannot give it 5 stars like I wish I could. Spiral, however, is very unique and a great anime that is worth watching!

    If you want to see the series yourself, this is the cheapest price for the complete series you can find. Although, I would agree that this is not one of the best anime around, there are still some parts that were as good as the manga because it stayed true to it. For example, Ayumu vs. Rio in the poison challenge, Ayumu vs. Kousuke in a two stage challenge, and the Rio/Kousuke vs. Ayumu/Hiyono to get the tape and Hiyono herself stayed true to the manga. Eyes' challenge could be labelled close to the original manga version, if it is not true to it. The main thing that was annoying for me was the preview for the next episode. They should not have had Hiyono do the preview for every episode, at least as a puppet show. There were questions not answered because the last part of the anime was not true to the manga at all. If they let it go on to Hizumi's appearance, the unanswered questions might have been answered, but no such thing will happen. If you're a mystery fan, I suggest that you don't get this anime, buy the manga version instead.

    After the reviews and description I was expecting a decent mystery type with innovative plot twists. If that's what you want try Death Note. I was expecting edge-of-your-seat suspense. I found myself browsing catalogs while it played instead. There were no real unpredictable surprises here, and the story line was kind of mediocre. The only really interesting parts, who are the Blade Children and who are the Hunters are never even answered. Quite a bit is left unanswered. In some stories that's a good thing to enhance the mystery, here it detracts as the writing isn't up there. In fairness, I have not watched the subtitled version. Assuming there is one. Package listed extras and I never saw a menu to access them. Didn't look real hard though. Maybe in a year or two I'll go back and find it better, once the expectations are forgotten. Then again, maybe not.
