If there is one flaw to this than it has to be the story and some decisions by the students. However if you are willing to not question those decisions, and just sit back you are in for what has to be one of the most refreshing takes on a murder mystery since the original twin peaks.

The writing is not on that level but there is a lot to cherish here. Basicly this is a murder mystery that is starred with the entire cast of an idol group. Every episode has some slow motion close ups of these idols. The close ups are not intrusive but they don't add anything to the story. However they can be looked upon as a reminder of youth amd innocence. This is relevant because the students choose not to trust the adults. These shots are carefree. Some students have certain mannerisms. One student is documenting what has happened by taking selfies. One might wonder doesn't she realise what has happened. But that is set straight in a couple of seconds when she takes a selfie of her with an empty locker in the background. People deal with stuff in different ways. The relationships between these students is also interesting. Why Neru is protected becomes clear to us halfway through the series. But not everyone has to know. This has a your secret is safe with me feel. And this is told in a matter of seconds without words.. Other than that there are some weird flashes/shots in between. The noise of the airconditioner, amd what i consider shots of how the world could be if what has happened was positive. For instance the goodbye party for Mr Tokuyama. There are some scenes that remind me of the grandmother of David lynch, Blood simple of the coen brothers, but drenched in japanese culture. The direction is rock solid. The noise or absence of is spot on. I know that I am probably giving too much praise. But I honestly cannot recall the last time I had so much fun watching a series. Finally this show is different. Most murder mysteries give blatant clues and than come up with a hidden one. This show tells more stories about friendship than all episodes of friends. It also tells about growing up. And believing in one self and another.
