I must admit that I went into this one with my eyes half closed. Or rather, I was peaking through my fingers, waiting for a catastrophe to happen. 3.55 on MAL is a good omen for that to happen. Well, what can I say, Holmes good looks can’t really save this disaster. Or can they?
He’s the man who sleeps with his face down on the floor for unknown reasons (it might be because Hudson is a zombie. Yeah, don’t ask and don’t bother to watch, you will not know either. Also, he’s not). He is the man who tries to fool Hudson by pretending to read books about cows who compete about who are going to get milked first. A man who pretends that water is wine because he wants wine when they are broke (and chews on Hudson’s hand like it is a piece of bread and also satisfied acts like it actually is a piece of bread.)
Does he solve any cases then? Not so much really. Maybe one, but he claims to only walk the dog. But perhaps it is just a coincidence that there was a man spotted with a dog just around the time when the crime was solved. Anyhow, Holmes is oblivious or at least pretend to be. And poor Hudson doesn’t know what to do.
I can’t really give this a bad score. It is impossible. Holmes is way too cute as a chibi. This crappy little anime has grown on me in all it’s crappiness. It is fun at times and since the episodes are only 3 minutes long it’s easy to watch. There are a total of 12 episodes and believe it or not there is actually a sort of story arc that is, sort of, solved in the end. The op/ed is really good too.
Well, I said I was gonna watch crappy anime this month and this counts as crappy but I wouldn’t give it that low a score if I were to score it. Sure, the animation probably suck but if you can find a cute chibi like Holmes then I don’t care about crappy animation.
Oh, yeah, the anime is actually based on a smart phone game. I must say that I am very hesitant wether anime should be made out of this type of game. Maybe it should have been just a game. Then again, if I had played the game maybe I had appreciated this little thing a lot more. Who knows. (Definitely not Holmes, he is too lazy to find out.)
If you want to watch it I made a little compilation of all 12 episodes. You can find it below.
