A Letter To Sakurako-san

Dear Sakurako-san,

Konnichiwa. You don't know me, but I would like you to know that you fascinate me, and probably many others who might be waiting in line somewhere, hoping to catch a glimpse of you in action. I have never read any of the light novels which tell your stories, but I did watch the first episode of the anime adaptation recently. Gosh, it bears such a long title. Nonetheless, I remember what it is: Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru. Even though I'm not an enthusiast of the mystery genre, something tells me that I should probably give your adventures a chance, at least for the anime.

I have never seen anybody who could elicit such profound intimacy with a human skull. Yeah, it is still rather hard to digest that image of extremely up-close proximity. Honestly, you really would kiss that thing, wouldn't you? Well, that aside, I must say that you and Shoutarou, or Shounen as you call him, make quite a refreshing pair. Indeed, considering that Shoutarou knows just when to keep you under control. Hmm, there should be a line somewhere between fascination and obsession. Maybe the utter lack of that is what draws out the endless potential of this series.  

Okay, due to my ignorance I have googled what an osteologist does. Come to think of it, I might have come across somebody else like you in my fuzzy memory. Just don't ask me who that person is. Anyway, the elaborate sight of bones and more bones reminds me somewhat of those fossils which the archaeologists dig during their expeditions. Then again, a little voice somewhere tells me that there is still a glaring difference. Don't worry though, I won't ever pretend to be somebody else, at least not when it requires such profound depths and such.

I find Shoutarou such an easily relatable guy, in particular when shrimps are concerned. Hmm, but I prefer my shrimps to be de-veined before cooking. In that sense, Shoutarou comes across as quite an easy target of manipulation. Sorry, I don't think that I would refer to those conditions as a fair exchange. Then again, it is already a wonder that Shoutarou is accompanying you to those trips. Nope, I won't even find myself in your car if I'm wearing his shoes. I mean, I would rather dive straight into those shrimps using my own allowance.

The breadth of your knowledge is amazing when analysing the case of the perceived double suicide by the beach. I could feel awe and respect coming from the police officer. His name is...Utsumi Hiroki. Yeah, I'm a little bad with names and faces. Bones too.

I'm certain that I won't be following the original novels (there are eight volumes as of now), but rest assured that I will be waiting for the next episode of the anime. Because something tells me that I should probably give your adventures a chance. Meanwhile, keep digging! Ogenki de.

Eccentrically Yours.
