There are people who can get into people’s minds and control their memories. This power is used to eradicate mysteries and cases or worse, to assassinate. The potential of said power is strong enough that it is able to destroy people’s minds, however, it can backfire and eat up ones own heart.

To counter it, chains are used to lock and protect each other’s weak and dangerous hearts. From one’s growing fear and disdain, they’re consequently called as a “Pet.”

  1. I’m pretty happy that there are more mystery genre anime being released. They all look interesting and I hope they deliver. I also can’t wait to see Nico and the rest of the ACCA 13 cast in the OVA this year. It’s been a while. (T^T)

  2. I watched the first episode of Darwin’s game a few days ago! It was actually pretty great plus if you like Future Diary it’s sorta similar which I like as well. I might even read the manga. I’ve been liking Mystery anime, so I’m glad new titles are airing.

    • That’s awesome, I loved Mirai Nikki. I love the mystery genre but past years I felt like we did not get many good mystery anime. Fingers crossed for this year!
