I did not expect much from this anime project because, ironically, I love anime but dislike most of the anime which are produced. In other words, I am pretty picky about what I like.....
"The Perfect Insider" is very clever, written about characters with far above average intelligence, and who also have unconventional views on life. As such, the dialogue reflects this with some of the discussions taking on direction and meaning that you would never find in most Anime (or most other serialized shows, for that much). Another thing that is somewhat odd is that for several episodes there is a jump backwards, to the events (and events leading to) which occurred 15 years prior. While they are frequently discussed in the confines of the current time, they are only viewed in a 1-2 minute segment at the very end of these episodes.
Without spoiling the perpetration of the crime too much, I have to admit that the way in which the character covers his/her tracks is quite clever. Mistakes are created in the OS that controls everything, which through their correction destroys key pieces of evidence. While I admit to figuring out the meaning of "F" early on (or at least what it represents) and while I did suspect the true identity of one character, I did not foresee the method used to cover the computer evidence. Quite simple, yet quite clever.
One thing that truly disappointed me is that there is very little shock and seeming no remorse from the perpetrator once the identity of the person on the cart is revealed. There is shock that the person ever existed but none at the sociopathic nature in which the perpetrator was able to perform these acts on this particular individual. As for who the person on the cart is..... well, I can't say that I "knew" in advance, but there are plenty of hints, if you pay attention and if you care to speculate. As for how this person ended up being inside the locked room, well, that was pretty obvious by the method in which the last minute or so of many episodes were scripted.
All-in-all, if you are looking for something without a lot of "fan service" and without "moe" (as in 萌 え or mo.e, NOT the female character's name) and without action, yet still has an intelligent concept and contains very intelligent dialogue........ this could be the one for you. If unconventional viewpoints, inappropriate relations (to include incest), and a slower pace do not appeal, then maybe you should head to one of the more popular titles.
