Based on the manga series Karakurizōshi Ayatsuri Sakon written by Masaru Miyazaki!

Ayatsuri Sakon puppet-master-sakon-3If you love a good murder mystery anime, definitely check out Ayatsuri Sakon otherwise known as “Puppet Master Sakon.” Despite its airing in 1999, this anime continues to be one of my favorites even today.

June 2, 2013 2 comments

A prequel to the popular manga by Hajime Segawa!

Ga-Rei-Zero CollectionThis anime series comes with an extra tag line of will you kill someone you love, because of love?
