Alternatively, what if Professor Layton became a shonen hero?
Ahem… well, Phi Brain: Puzzle of God is a new anime straight from Sunrise. It’s about a high school student named Kaito Daimon who enjoys solving puzzles. His mastery over puzzles gets him involved with an with secret organization known as POG, where they put him to the test by making him solve lethal puzzles, and the wrong answer means his end. Luckily, he has a magic armlet that allows him to solve even the most challenging of puzzles.
So, me being a fan of puzzle games like Professor Layton, I couldn’t help but be interested in this show. Three episodes in, it seems pretty cool. So I’m going to continue watching.
