F City, F Prefecture: the battleground where good and evil have finally chosen to decide once and for all who will rule the world…or at least that's the general idea! Neither side seems up for the task, as surviving the brutality of everyday life is enough of a chore.

Add in alien invasions, jungle warfare, and Mexican immigrant laborers to Japan, and this war doesn't seem likely to be ending soon!

It is the Age of the Great Detectives. Gentleman thieves seek to steal the world's treasures with the aid of their superpowers called "Toys", while the forces of justice use their own Toys to try and stop them. Trained by Opera Kobayashi, the young Sherlock Shellingford, Nero Yuzurizaki, Hercule Barton, and Cordelia Glauca are the top students at Holmes Academy and members of the famous detective team Milky Holmes. But when a run in with the nefarious gentleman thief Arsene robs them of their Toys, the group's charmed life comes quickly to an end, banished to a squalid attic in one of the academy's dorms.

Neither Excel Saga nor Tantei Opera Milky Holmes looks like it's going to have any adult themes in it- especially the latter, but both shows end up nudging the boundaries of what can be shown. Excel Saga sets up misleading situations, makes mature asides, and has some awkward sequences towards the end. Tantei Opera Milky Holmes has a frequently naked man with stiff nipples, ecstacy inducing attacks, and a blatant fanservice episode. If you want something that's almost ecchi, but not quite, try these on for size.
