We all know that a lot of the booty of the golden age of explorations made it into museums. The British Museum in the C.M.B. story, which had custody of the recondite scientific curiosities and artifacts collected by explorer/adventurers and stored in a Wunderkammer, decided to study the dusty arcana in the 19th century. Three investigators dubbed the "Magi" were appointed to do the research, each given a ring embossed with the letters C.M.B.

Fast-forward to present-day Japan where Sakaki Shinra is the curator of a museum of oddities. He now has possession of the C.M.B. rings, indicating that he has been granted the status of guardian of knowledge like the Magi that preceded him.

Mediocre at best.

Another mystery manga that portrays policemen as retards, is quite shallow and at times dumb and also confuses something being possible with it being a fact, not to mention the rather pathetic MC seems to base his thinking process around the assumption the suspects don't like "it can't be him because he said blah blah..." talk about weak argumentation. In any case, the mysteries are not particularly good so far or what's hard is not the the crime itself but finding or interpreting the witness and stuff like that.
I also don't find the MC believable at all, being very intelligent is one thing, having vast knowledge is something that comes from time and experience, being the son of ... doesn't count for sh*t, so that's very dumb, also he's quite dumb for someone with that knowledge and intelligence. Also, he's not precisely likeable and how he extorts people to give them an answer is plain extorsion which I can't see how someone might find it interesting or funny.
All in all this is a rather bad mystery manga imo.

another side of Q.E.D

while the heroine have really same side with Kana on Q.E.D
the MC is another counter-part of Touma
what i meant is while Touma is major on Math, Shinra given title by "sage" which field consist of archaeology, biology, also history
their point of view is definitely different
but still logic is use here, even so Shinra have too many mystic in his case -_-'

the story itself even shorter than Q.E.D but the comedy is more in here

it's your choice to pick one or both of the series biggrin

it's same plot with Q.E.D but it's more like the development of Q.E.D
the genius main character but is still a boy and has kind of "nobility" in british museum (-souma,the main in Q.E.D is just a "simple" high school student that has graduated from MIT. nothing more) and the main heroin is more feminine and calmer than the one in Q.E.D but has same strenght.
the story is more various because it often takes places all around the world and bring you something new and give you knowledge, especially about history. and the author is succed to show the reader what he thinks about mysteries that happened in the world's ressurection like pyramida, colosseum, etc.
conclusion: read this if you like history and if you dont, you'll be made to like history lol biggrin

Very Real and Interesting

I read up to 15 volumes and I find it very entertaining.

All the stories background most are historical events and when i googled it, it was just exactly like the way it was depicted, in some cases i was a bit confused separating the history and the fiction (especially on volume 4, the Judean Fortune). Yes, the characters are so familiar with the other Katou-san works but it doesn't bother too much. I love most of the stories, situations, the school-mate characters and the meaning behind some stories smile

PS. I read three series of Katou-san's - CMB, Rocket Man and Q.E.D and just wondering how he wrote that storied, is he some professor or something? :S

Better than QED

If u read my comment on QED page then u need to know that CMB doesn't have all that weakness.

All I can say is this a better version of QED

the heroine is identical means Motohiro Katou really like this kind of character

CMB is more enjoyable than QED coz the cases are more related to other cases and to the characters

yeah, more recurring characters too, this is good, a must read

I have only have three volumes of this but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.. it was annoying in some parts like before he solves the case he says welcome to wundermaker or something.. but other than that, this manga is worth reading if you like mystery
