Imagine a female Holmes with a Japanese Watson, who's black hair stands him out in a small European country in the 1920's, with a touch of romance between the two. That's about the gist of how this story came to be.

It has creativity and potential, now to see if it can live up to them.

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.

amazing genuinely brilliant. the mysteries were genius, wonderfully crafted and always kept a dark, troublesome yet, comedic edge to them loved it smile
also the anime recently came out, it is absolutely amazing
(but i found the end a bit bittersweet somehow)

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.....

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.

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.

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.

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'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.

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...
