Synopsis

The great detective Holmes does not solve mysteries or use deductive reasoning. He does, however, hunt vampires. Using three-minute episodes, Vampire Holmes retells the story of the great Holmes and his assistant. What begins as an ordinary detective agency takes a turn for the occult when the Metropolitan Police of London secretly hire Holmes and Hudson to investigate vampires.

Or at least that's what Holmes would tell anyone who asks. In reality, he and Hudson spend most of their time sitting around arguing, and failing to solve any cases. Joined by the not-so-black, demon cat Kira, and their terrifying rent-hungry landlady, this is the story of the man who was most definitely not London's greatest detective.

There's bad and then there's Vampire Holmes.

I have a hard time understanding what the script writers were thinking when they all sat down and decided to churn out this forgettable pile of cow manure. To put it in perspective shows like Inferno Cop, Ninja Slayer and others along those lines are Shakespearean masterpieces in comparison.

This isn't the "so bad it's good" kind of title.
This is the "so bad douse my eyes with gasoline" kind of nonsense.

I can't even bring myself to write a troll review and dub it a "masterpiece" since that's too deserving of it. Hell even bothering to write about read more

Ladies and gentleman. This show 'Vampire Holmes', is the epitome of a brilliantly put together anime. I can't even stress enough on how ingenious it is. The fresh comedy, thought-provoking mystery's and animation that makes Ufotable look like some highschool amateurs makes this 'the show' anime needed to finally escape from the recently developed stereotype of anime being only Moe, boobs and harems.

Characters: 9/10
So we got Holmes, who is supposedly the most brilliant detective in the world. 1 episode is only 3 minutes including the OP and ED, but they still managed to create a full-fledged personality for this character in read more

I don't know if i should laugh like a maniac, or cry like one.

Vampire Holmes is a show about Holmes who lives in London (It's totally not Sherlock Holmes we're talking about) and solves mysteries. The only mystery so far in the story, is why the fuck i'm still watching this!

Story: 3/10

The story? What story!? The story so far is NOTHING compared to the synopsis. True, he has solved ONE request. "What was that request?! I'm dying to know it!" I can hear you say, ever so sarcastically. He found a lost dog. Yup. NOTHING ELSE HAS HAPPENED. They've lazed around in their apartment, but read more

Woah! What a fascinating view of art this show has produced. This "masterpiece" was brought to us by Studio Cucuri. I can tell that they have wonderful ideas to make Sherlock Holmes more relatable.

STORY (10):

The story was well told with brilliant comedy lined up. It was way better than any comedy I have watched. Way better than Danganronpa and Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki Kun combined. Shelock Holmes did a great job in solving mysteries alongside with his sidekick Hudson. They had established a great relationship ever by doing random things or doing nothing. The comedy was excellent, it had random events that happened.

ART (10):

What a marvellous read more
