Review: Hidarime Tantei EYE

Posted on

I am currently watching Hidarime Tantei EYE. A pilot aired in October 2009, and the 8 episode follow-up series finished airing a few weeks ago.

Stolen synopsis:

Tanaka Ainosuke, a third-year junior high school student with a strong sense of justice, underwent a cornea transplant of the left eye. However, after that, he received news that his older brother, Yumehito, the donor of that cornea, had died in an accident. Furthermore, Ainosuke was shocked by the images in his left eye which he had never seen before. Deducing that these images were connected to his brotherโ€™s death, Ainosuke began to search for the truth surrounding the death of his beloved brother and only immediate family. But as the investigation progressed, Ainosuke discovered that Yumehitoโ€™s death had been fake and that he is actually the leader of an evil organization. This sets the stage for a clash of fate between the two brothers. Ainosuke, the young sleuth armed with a special left eye and Yumehito, the genius criminal who has carried out many criminal plots.
