In Kabukicho, the home of Tokyo’s famous red-light district, neon lights shine brightly but they harbor Tokyo’s darkest evils. Mrs. Hudson runs a tenement where seven strange but colorful individuals reside — including the detective, Sherlock Holmes. The stage is set for Sherlock when a bizarre murder occurs involving Jack the Ripper!
There have been countless adaptions to the original Arthur Conan Doyle's work in the past. Being a fan of Sherlock Holmes, I have seen a lot of them and so I was excited to watch this too. And I was definitely not disappointed! Set up in a Japanese setting (in Kabukicho nonetheless!), this one was definitely different from the other adaptions. All the main characters from Doyle's works are in the series but, while being the same, they still feel different. In the first half, the series is quite episodic with different cases in each episode and the second half is kind of a separate arc. But everything comes together quite well in the second half. And the ending! The ending was honestly my favorite part coz it is a good ending and wraps the series nicely. All in all, definitely worth a watch if you are a fan of Sherlock Holmes or mystery in general!
The first half of the show was really enjoyable which was mainly due to a bunch of eccentric detectives (based on well known fictional characters) solving all sorts of mysteries. There is a lot of focus on character development and we get to see what makes every detective tick. The second half of the series is 1 big arc which I thought was a lot less enjoyable. The show tries to introduce several plots twists but it doesn't really work out. The show was rather goofy in the beginning, it never really took itself seriously but it all goes out the window in the second half. A very cool and eccentric cast with a rather weak second half but enjoyable nonetheless.
I had high hopes going into this anime because I absolutely love detective work and in some ways I guess I could say it kinda lived up to them but not really. What i didnt like : There is more than one main character in a way in this series but my problem lies with their development. While there is more than one mc there is obviously the actual main. He was my favourite but to me everyone around him took him for granted. He didnt do anything special but i would have expected the characters mainly Sherlock (the detective hes an assistant for) to acknowledge him but he didnt. Also the story kinda revolved around a single person (who i wont name) in a way, and it kinda bored me because i could tell from the very beginning who did what on so. If your not as picky as me with the characters and you wanna watch more for the detective cases then go ahead and give it a try.
