Hello...what have we here?

With the popularity of all these different takes on various forms of media, this is a great anime version of the Sherlock Holmes world. Sherlock Hound is unique in that it sets Sherlock in a world where the entire populace are animals. The mysteries are great and are fun to try to solve before the main characters do. The characters are very likable and the voices fit them perfectly. The animation was done by hand and gives a warm, inviting feel to the series. Some of the episodes were directed by Hayao Miyazaki-san and viewers will be able to tell which ones they are. This truly is a pure classic that should be in your collection.

Buy if you're an anthro or Miyazaki fan, not for fans of Conan Doyle.

I hadn't seen this series in many years, and then suddenly Discotek and Eastern Star come out saying, "Give us all your money!" and when I saw this was the prize for doing so I said, "Yessir!" A real nostalgic trip. However this is not as accurate to the actual Sherlock Holmes stories. Not saying it's a bad series, I still enjoyed the atmosphere it gave off. A steampunk world of dog people where crimes occur and Holmes as a mutt must make things right again. The only episode that comes close to a true adaptation is "The Speckled Band." Also, 6 episodes were done by Studio Ghibli's Hayao Miyazaki and he made Holmes's housekeeper, Mrs. Hudson, an outstanding racer and marksman.

"Famous Detective Holmes"--literal translation of the Japanese series title--is certainly Britain's most globally popular literary export along with Alice and her psychedelic adventures. This comic animal-based series from the 1980s jumps things up a few years, from Victorian to Edwardian times--so that Sherlock, Watson, Inspector Lestrade and the gang can chase Professor Moriarty all over London in horseless carriages and fantasy airplanes. Which is one way we know Hayao Miyazaki had a hand in the series. The use of critters rather than people keeps the violence in check (as compared to "Famous Detective Conan" which gets pretty gory) and there's a high degree of slapstick and silliness among the villains, reminiscent of "Laputa" (which Miyazaki was working on at this time). For once the phrase "fun for all ages" is spot-on!
