In the near future, in a world tarnished by lawlessness and disorder, exists an elite detective agency known as Milky Holmes. Represented by four talented young girls, the agency exists to fight against those that threaten the people's security. Through their struggles to preserve peace is a courageous, poignant story of mystery and betrayal...

Wait, none of that has anything to do with Milky Holmes. Let's try again.

For Sheryl, Cordelia, Elly and Nero, any shred of courage and talent is tossed aside within five minutes of the first episode. After losing their supernatural abilities— "Toys", the once-esteemed detectives devolve into a group of scatterbrains miserably failing read more

I think that some people didn't know what exactly to expect from the series when they first went into it. Goodness knows I was expecting something else. My review is going to hopefully clear up some things for people, before they even pick up the Anime, because I garantee, some people aren't going to be happy with it.

Story: (3+9)/2=6

I have a ligitimate reason for giving the story an odd two part rating. In my case, it has to deal with the fact that from the summary I read, I was expecting something that was cute, innocent, almost like a brand new take on an old read more

OK first of all, before you pick up this series, throw every expectation out of the window! Literally!
Here's the most common perception people have on this anime;
-"Oh god, It's another lolicon's anime!"
Well, that's my first perception on it, but I can assure you, only the opening looks lolicon-ish. The rest of the show doesn't really promote pedophilia. How can you when the main villain of this series has gigantic b**b!

-"Wow! A mystery anime! Finally I get to watch something else other than Detective Conan!"
Once again, throw away that perception. Did the title say Detective Holmes? No. Unlike Detective Conan, it's clearly not stated it's read more

So after a while i decided to write my first review for the most underrated anime i saw. Tantei Opera Milky Holmes.

If i look at my scores 8 for story, 8 for art, 8 for sound.
Its not really the animation or a great storyline which amazed me. The character are so funny to watch and the most important point for me was the "enjoyment".

I dont care if the arts bad, story boring and the sound annoying, but the jokes was so nice to watch, and the insider gags were so funny( ones you get it) that the enjoyment factor was at maximum for me.

And read more

Both are about unlucky girl-only squads in absurd comedic situations.

At first glance both of them seem to be anime for kids but after a few episodes you´ll notice that they are definitely seinen 
reportRecommended by -Sora-
Both animes have people with special powers. In Gakuen Alice those powers are called Alice. In Milky Holmes those are called Toys 
reportRecommended by yuyano
Milky Holmes pokes fun of the classic type of mystery that shows up in Detective Conan series. The original Sherlock is also mentioned at times. 
reportRecommended by Yemi_Hikari
If you're looking for some detective fiction, then these two series are for you. Although presented differently, these two series have some tastes of mystery in them.

Both series has a cast of characters who are eager to become detectives.

Both series has a lot of comedy, drama, and some mystery here and there.

Both series also follows an episodic theme. 
reportRecommended by Stark700
Both anime take place in a school of sorts, and focuses on the interaction between an all female cast in an always comedic tone.
