A Female Watson Helps Holmes Solve Mysteries of Antiques

by -

While I liked "Holmes of Kyoto", it's clear this version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's characters won't appeal to all viewers. The anime is described as Seinen style, or perhaps it's more Josie style with the romantic aspect of a 17 year old High School girl portraying Watson.

The anime is produced by 'SEVEN' and isn't the best animation one would expect from a show made in 2018, but I did enjoy the opening/closing songs, was amused that Holmes nemesis in this show is a forger of antiques whom I refer to as 'The Mad Monk", and the overall stories are low-key mysteries involving 'Antiques Road Show' type of presentation at times. There's one episode where Holmes does solve an attempted murder case, but other than that, the mysteries are aimed at solving antique scams/forgeries with the romantic twist.

Four stars if your a Sherlock Holmes fan, if not, then the show falls to three stars. BD has a sticker '1421 of 1500' on the slip cover and presented in 1080p / 16:9 format.
