Fuuto Tantei Review: Psycho-Pass Flashbacks!

October 21, 2022

Before anyone even asks, I mean the title as a compliment. Not as an insult. While the later seasons of Psycho-Pass may have been sub-par, I still like the series. And many of the tones and settings of Fuuto Tantei remind me a lot of Psycho-Pass. Both series provide a good combo of detective work and action. This show leans more toward the action side than Psycho-Pass but I still like it.

So welcome back to another one of my reviews! Today we are talking about Fuuto Tantei. I show which I started on a whim after seeing a clip on Reddit. And to be honest, I really enjoyed this show. It was among my favorite shows from last season. With that said though, let’s move on with the review.

As the title may suggest, Fuuto Tantei is about 2 private detectives, Shotaro and Phillip. Their agency specializes in dealing with cases involved with Gaia Memories, small flash drive looking things that can turn humans into monsters. First off, the setting of Fuuto city is awesome. They also have the whole “negative” version of the city shown in the first and the last arcs of the season. Both of them are very cool and fitting to the plot.

As for the plot itself, it is kind of complicated. I mean, it’s a detective anime so I can’t spoil much. But it’s like each of their cases appear to be separate from the other on the surface but are actually connected. It is a fairly interesting plot and it is paced rather well. The balance between action and suspense they went for is pretty nice. I like the pattern, most of the arc goes into detective work, culminating in one final fight. Each final fight better than the previous one. Simple but it works well.

All five members of the main cast of Fuuto Tantei are really memorable. From Ryu’s signature “Do not question me” line (even the anime makes memes of this in those post-credit chibi animations) to Akiko’s Asian “parenting”. Our main duo, Shotaro and Phillip complement each other really well, one excels in reading people while the other is a “cold” calculating genius. Shotaro in particular has really won me over, he acts cool but is actually a softy. As for Tokime, she probably has the most character development throughout the season and her backstory is strongly related to the plot.

There are a lot of memorable side characters as well. That is kind of a big deal considering the side characters only stay for one case and then are basically never seen again.

Animations and Soundtracks

I love the art style Fuuto Tantei went for. The city looks amazing, the transformations look really epic and I love the character designs. The animations, feel a bit stiff at times but it is hard to notice. The animations could have been a bit smoother for sure though. As for the soundtracks, some of the BGMs are really good. The fight music most of the time is pretty epic. And I absolutely love the opening and ending themes. They fit the detective vibe of the story so, so well.


My final ratings for Fuuto Tantei are:

  • Plot – 8/10
  • Characters – 9/10
  • Animations – 8/10
  • Soundtracks – 9/10
  • Enjoyment – 10/10
  • “Now, count up your sins!” – 10/10
  • Overall – 9/10

Well, those were my views on Fuuto Tantei. Let me know yours in the comments below. That is all for now though, I will take my leave here. It is test week. See ya!
