The official synopsis for the anime is translated below:
In the laboratory on that solitary island, living a life completely isolated from girlhood.

Genius programmer Shiki Magata.

Wanting to meet Shiki, they visited the laboratory.

There, Nagono University Associate Professor Sohei Saigawa and his student Moe Nishinosono came upon a case there.

What they saw in her locked room was something

A corpse in a wedding dress with both hands and feet amputated

How did the killer enter and leave the locked laboratory?

This mysterious locked room murder has challenged Saigawa and Moe.

Subete ga F ni Naru TV drama starring Ayano Go (Saikawa) and Emi Takei (Nishinosono)

They are excited for the anime too!

It was one of the highly-anticipated Japanese dramas on my watch list after Itazura na Kiss: Love in Tokyo, the first I had watched, wowed me over. The premise seems highly intriguing and I can only imagine the comical predicaments they would land in while solving the many different puzzles. Not to mention that noitaminA is also home to many revered and highly-lauded anime series such as Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, Psycho Pass and Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (Your Lie in April), and I can't wait for this already!

In addition, the official Twitter account announced that Mori's other novel series Shiki (Four Seasons), in addition to Subete ga F ni Naru, will be receiving manga adaptations.
