Anime: Himitsu – The Revelation (Namikawa Daisuke, Seki Tomokazu)
Himitsu – The Revelation 秘密 トップ・シークレット, based on a manga by Shimizu Reiko 清水玲子 has started showing since 8 April 2008.
Summary (edited from Anime News Network)
The ninth forensic lab of the National Research Institute of Police Science, called Dai Ku (the 9th), uses technology to reproduce images from memories residing in the brain of dead victims to solve difficult cases. This is the story of Maki, the leader of Dai Ku, and Aoki, a newcomer.
Everybody have secrets. This anime shows the agonies of the investigators who have to know these secrets unwillingly.
For anyone who is not familiar with Shimizu Reiko, she is the mangaka of Moon Child (Not the GacktxHyde vehicle ^^”), Jack and Elena series, Kaguya Hime and various Sci-Fi themed shoujo manga. I love her works and art tremendously. Her style is very delicate yet detailed and her stories have always been able to touch me. Two of my first all-time-fav shounen-ai couples come from her shoujo works ~sigh… so nostalgic… :) I had wished so much that there are animations of her works (only Moon Child had an image video, which is like a music PV of the manga. Does anybody have it? I want to see it!!! T-T) To discover that Himitsu is now an anime is quite a nice surprise.
Himitsu is a very intriguing psychological thriller and I enjoyed reading it. There are some BL elements as well as highly slashable characters. I’ve not watched the first episode of the anime but looking at pictures from the official website (http://www.ntv.co.jp/secret/), I’m rather disappointed that the producers weren’t able to reproduce the original character designs… which were so much more beautiful than the anime version… The main seiyuus are Seki Tomokazu 関智一 and Namikawa Daisuke 浪川大辅 (I like!!! xD) Anyway, I’ll definitely put this on my to-watch list as well.
