April 2008 New Anime: Himitsu - Top Secret

Genres: Detective / SciFi / Thriller
I've watched: 1 episode
Art style: Realistic

Summary: A new method, called Memory Reproduction Imaging (MRI) is being used by police to solve crimes. It uses dead victim's brain to reconstruct the image they saw right before death, hoping this would provide the lead to the murder.

Rating (of 5) - first impression: 4 - Interesting thrillers

Personal comments: Generally speaking, I don't like realistic art style animes. However, there are exceptions. Most recent ones has been Gallery Fake, Rescue Wings and Bartender. Now Himitsu - Top Secret would be added to the list as well. The concept is already somewhat old. Many scifi movies have taken a shot at it. But Himitsu - Top Secret actually approaches for a different angel, which makes it very attractive new anime.
