Undead Girl Murder Farce is Fun

September 1, 2023

Key takeaways from UNdead Girl Murder Farce review:

  • The anime successfully captures a captivating Gothic European setting, blending Western and Japanese myths, and featuring iconic Western characters like Sherlock and Lupin.
  • The anime combines a unique plot with a diverse cast of entertaining characters, creating a suspenseful and enjoyable viewing experience.
  • While the animation quality is decent, the distinctive character designs and fitting soundtrack enhance the overall appeal, earning high marks for setting and enjoyment.

I was always interested in this anime. I’ve said this many times but I really like the Goth European setting in an anime. And Undead Girl Murder Farce sticks tightly to those Goth elements while delivering a fascinating story. So if you want to watch a detective anime with supernatural and goth elements, you’re at the right place.

The setting is why I started this anime but stayed for the plot and characters. The setting combined with the unique plot and the characters made this anime really enjoyable for me.

So welcome back to another one of my reviews. Today I am talking about Undead Girl Murder Farce and why I enjoyed it so much. So let’s start.

Plot

The anime does a good job of blending Western myths with small amounts of Japanese myths. So all kinds of mythical creatures exist in the world of this anime, vampires, werewolves, demons… and our MC is a half-Oni of all things. So yeah there is an interesting blend of culture here. Not only that but there are classical Western characters in this anime like Sherlock, Lupin, Jack the Ripper, etc. When Sherlock was mentioned in the first arc, I didn’t think we would see him but he is featured prominently in the 2nd arc.

The setting aside, the story itself is pretty good too. It uses all these different kinds of characters really well and the suspense is palpable. We have a nice chunk of cliffhangers as well which always get you hyped for the next week’s episode. We just came off a major arc in the series so I am not sure what will happen in the remaining 3 episodes but it should be something fun.

Characters

We got a wide cast of some really entertaining and cool characters. Even the MC himself, Tsugaru is really quirky and interesting. It is fun listening to him do this “commentary” when he is fighting. The other MC, Aya, the titular Undead Girl is an interesting character too. The back-and-forth between her and Tsugaru is always entertaining. Then we have a whole slew of interesting side characters like Sherlock, Lupin, Shizuku, etc.

I wish we got some character development for our MCs but it doesn’t really feel that lacking because of how well the interactions and the story are written.

Animations and Soundtracks

The animations are decent. I don’t think the animations themselves are anything too good. But the art style and character designs won’t let you notice that. I love the character designs in Undead Girl. They are very distinct and fit the respective characters really well. That combined with some really good voice work makes the characters way more appealing. The soundtrack is pretty good too. The BGMs are nice and fit the setting, the opening theme is awesome as well.

Conclusion

Here are my final ratings for Undead Girl Murder Farce:

  • Plot – 9/10
  • Characters – 8/10
  • Animations – 8/10
  • Soundtracks – 7/10
  • Enjoyment – 9/10
  • Setting – 10/10
  • Overall – 8/10

Those were my thoughts and opinions on this anime. It really turned out to be way better than I thought it would. A combination of a good story, a great setting, and a wide cast of characters really made this anime work for me. Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. See ya!!
