If I've learned anything from the last few years, it's not to judge a book by it's cover. Or in this case, a series by it's title.

Title: UN-GO, アンゴ
Animation Production: BONES
Genre: Mystery
Airs: 10/13 24:45 FUJI TV
Website: http://www.un-go.com/
Series Summary from AniDB:
The main characters, Yuuki Shinjuurou and Inga, work together to solve mysteries in a near future timeline. The story is based on the works of Sakaguchi Ango (Aoi Bungaku Series' "In the Forest, Under Cherries in Full Bloom"), a post-World War II Japanese novel and essayist.  
Kenn's Comment: By that preview, I hope most of you realize that there isn't much info out. For those who can read Japanese, there's an introduction on the website. The menu is in English, but everything else is in Japanese.

Anywho, like the description says, the series is based off the works on the detective works of Sakaguchi Ango, and the title is likely a play off of his name. In Japanese, it's actually spelt and pronounced the same way, though I guess it'd be far too much of a tip off if the romanized titled was ANGO.  Regardless of the title, I'm always up for a good mystery series, and the characters and setting are interesting.
