Kindaichi Title

Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo

(The Case Files of Young Kindaichi)

genre: Mystery/Fiction

Nazo subete wo toketa!

Kindaichi Hajime isn't quite your typical high school student. Barely passing his classes, often sleeping and being utterly bored, you'd think he was quickly on his way to going no where in the world. So how is it that Nanase Miyuki, an honours student can stand the lazy guy, let alone refuse to date other boys because of him? However, Kindaichi isn't quite your typical near failing kid. True, he has no interest in his classes, but not because it's too difficult, quite the opposite. Kindaichi scored higher even than Nanase on his entry exam to the high school in the first place. Simply put, school was just boring and the endless rote memory work was less than interesting.

That's not to say that Kindaichi is without interest however. The how's and whys of crimes interest Kindaichi very much; to the point where he'll stake his grandfather's name and reputation on being able to solve a given crime/mystery.
