Tantei Opera Milky Holmes 2

Oh god, so yet another season for Milky Holmes, huh? Frank; I don’t understand what all the fuss is all about, the first season’s ratings weren’t that great. In fact; there were just above average. I personally never really understood this lolicon-type comedy, which is probably why I stopped watching after the third episode of season one.

The artwork still remains the same from what I’ve seen; no major changes, but nothing special in itself. The characters do look pretty cute and well-drawn, but it ends there for me.

The story is what’s at fault here, at least in my opinion. The comedy in this show isn’t all that great, it is, at times, very dry and has very little impact. Sure, there are scenes that’ll make you laugh. But the point of a comedy show is to have you laughing non-stop, but that is not the case here.

I personally wouldn’t recommend this to many people. If you like lolicon-type comedies then go ahead, but other than that it’s just an average show with average ratings.

Plot Summary: “Sheryl, Nero, Elly, and Cordelia are the most popular students at Holmes Detective Academy, because of the many cases they’ve solved with their Toys and teamwork. The students and the people of the Detective City Yokohama all look up to the members of “Milky Holmes”, as they’re called. But on a dark and stormy night, during a battle with their rivals “The Gentlemen Thief Empire”, they lose their toys, and their fate undergoes a dramatic change…”
