Anime review: Hamatora

First things first, I think I should stock up on reviews for once (dumb notice but who cares). Next week I have holidays so maybe I’ll stock up around 5-10 reviews, which may cost me a day but who cares. But about this anime, it’s an original. Though from many other projects, it ended up in an anime. Not really the biggest project ever no. Well, that was it I guess about information.

Hamatora theme 1


The ability to create miracles is not just a supernatural phenomenon; it is a gift which manifests in a limited number of human beings. “Minimum,” or small miracles, are special powers that only selected people called “Minimum Holders” possess. The detective agency Yokohama Troubleshooting, or Hamatora for short, is composed of the “Minimum Holder PI Duo,” Nice and Murasaki. Their office is a lone table at Cafe Nowhere, where the pair and their coworkers await new clients.

Suddenly, the jobs that they begin to receive seem to have strange connections to the serial killer whom their friend Art, a police officer, is searching for. The murder victims share a single similarity: they are all Minimum Holders. Nice and Murasaki, as holders themselves, are drawn to the case—but what exactly is the link between Nice and the one who orchestrates it all?

Hamatora theme 3


So I thought it was quite enjoyable. Despite it being kind of confusing, due to the main plot divided into very small parts in the episodes, it was quite nice to watch. So about the concept, it reminds me of many other stories (which I can’t remember the name of right now), but it still has its unique parts. Though there are some holes in the plot, most of the things get filled in the sequel or some things get even more confusing there. But all in all, they round it up pretty well. So more about the story, it’s more like there are short stories where a little sentence is the key to the main plot which will be expended at the sequel too. You can also stop watching until the first part, since it will have not much effect, only that you can speculate the ending. I liked the names, but maybe they’re a bit too easy and some are quite unusual (mostly all of them). I think I’ll give it a 7,5/10. I quite liked it. The enjoyability is definitely worth it for me, only that it was a pretty low-budget project, so it the story wasn’t really very well done and there had to be a sequel otherwise it would be even more crap. Because of that, I’ll only give that part a 5/10, because it’s not properly worked out I think.


Well, that’s it then. I don’t have much to say I think, so see you next time.


P.s. What I also liked was the OP and ED song, I still ahve them on my phone!
