Go for the light novels or anime
Gosick is probably the first time I've actively thought the anime adaptation was better than the manga version. The manga and anime are virtually identical in the way the mysteries and character interactions were presented, but there is one major difference in the manga - it literally ends with nothing resolved.

None of the questions about Victorique's family background, Cordelia and Brian Roscoe's roles or even Kujo's own secrets are answered.
I finished the manga and the anime too I'm hoping GOSICK to create a live action !! Very similar story to Dantalian no shoka Victorique and Dalian are cute lolis!

Poor Victorique-chan... she never been given right by her father to be free as a child.....I hate Albert de blois he raped Cordelia for his greedy and selfish desire.....
Watched the anIme. It had a fitting ending which suited this story well and the plot was unique and Victoique developed as a character and so did Kujou (slightly). All conflicts were resolved and there were no plot holes. An intriguing story worth my time.
I've been enjoying it so far. I think Victorique is a fabulous, funny character. Sort of a mix of Sherlock Holmes and L Lawliet (Death Note). The main character is rather boring however, but I'm ready for the next part.
The romance is rather adorable, and works well in contrast with the continual murders and deception. The mysteries, while not especially complex, are entertaining. The characters are rather interesting, especially a certain credit stealing nobleman.
While a lot of aspects of the story are certainly not original. It still comes together for a very pleasant read. Its not in my favorites yet, but it will be very possible for it to end up there with future developments.

I originally thought this was only loli/moe crap, but after seeing a review describing Gosick's world as some kind of crapstatic world, (quite incompatible with moe crap), I gave it the benefit of the doubt.
Indeed, from the beginning the mysteries are quite dark, lots of people die, and by the end of the story (I watched the anime), lots of things went really bad, and the mood is anything but light (rape backstory, conspiration, war...(!) O_o )
In the end, nothing trenscendent, but the two protagonists are really sweet and the plot as well as the atmosphere are not uninteresting, and quite surprisingly grim. =>Not bad...
Sherlock Holmes the loli
If you like cheap mysteries and lolis, this isn't a bad story. Just don't come into this expecting good writing. The characters are obviously based off Sherlock Holmes (the detective character smokes, just like Holmes) and Dr. Watson (the sidekick character is former military, just like Watson) but flubs them completely personality-wise.
Cute and gothic
Well, this is a nice manga. We have a very well drawn character, but the overall art isn't that much. The main couple in the story is really cute and we have many funny situations during the story. It's gothic in the best sense: the plot remembers me allan poe a lot. So it's not a forced gothic, it's gothic of high quality. I wouldn't recommend this to any person, but those who like darker stories will simply love it.
Definitely not my favoriteónot in a billion years. But it's a good read nonetheless.
The art style is not my style or of my liking at all, but it's not bad at all. The clothing is a meh, but the background structure is beautiful.
The story is not the best mystery I've read, but they're interesting enough for me to not want to put down until the next chapter. Theyre also a bit predictable and awfully clichéd... But still a good read.
Definitely recommended for those who aren't looking for a serious series.
amazing genuinely brilliant. the mysteries were genius, wonderfully crafted and always kept a dark, troublesome yet, comedic edge to them loved it also the anime recently came out, it is absolutely amazing (but i found the end a bit bittersweet somehow)
