Kami-sama no Memo-chou is GOOD!

Kami-sama no Memo-chou is also one of the series I had been looking forward to the most this Summer Anime 2011 season.
Was pleasantly surprised when the first episode was actually given a 1 hour time slot, and the next episode is coming out tomorrow, so hurray!
The story is basically about loli NEET detective, Alice, who spends all her time locked in her room solving mysteries and perhaps crimes. She is a charismatic enigma, gathering NEET followers and even respect from the local yakuza but at the same time full of mysteries herself.
Alice is in many ways similar to GOSICK’s Victorique (which is another awesome series btw) but set in modern day Japan and makes full use of the Internet to gather most of the information she needs in order to solve a mystery. Everything else is handled by her followers, who are an interesting bunch themselves such as the Major, who looks, acts and sounds (same seiyuu) like BakaTest’s Mutsurii~
The main character of Kami-sama no Memo-chou is actually one Narumi Fujishima, who was forcefully introduced into Alice’s circle and somehow got himself involved with the NEET detective without really wanting to.
If you love a good mystery, a fan of Sherlock Holmes, Detective Conan and GOSICK, you will seriously enjoy Kami-sama no Memo-chou.
