Unfortunately as of the series conclusion I can safely say Kyoto Holmes is a safe but unnecessary mystery/shoujo.
Worth noting, I have no knowledge of Japanese art history though, which might present some additional entertainment value as its a subject i haven't seen covered before.

Story 4/10
As the biggest draw, to me, was the mystery, the lack of an impressive plot was a sad detraction. The mysteries weren't boring, but the cardinal sin of not giving the viewers enough information to potentially solve the mystery themselves is a sore point. Even then the mysteries tend to lack significant consequence, which brings me to the worst read more

Honestly, when I saw the score on Kyoto Teramachi Sanjou no Holmes I had to put my two cents in. This is one of my all-time favorite anime’s ever! The characters have a real depth to them. The back stories are well-done and the romance is slow and heart warming. The concept of an art appraiser is new and I found it incredible interesting to learn about the different art pieces. If you love heartwarming anime where the characters grow and develop then I recommend it 100%!!
Oops, first review and I guess they want it to be longer :P Well, what else can I say? read more

Tranquil, witty, not the worst characters around, and a great way to promote the city.

I personally would have liked a little bit more about art, collecting and counterfeits, and less about the romance (the two are obviously made for each other, no need to show them dancing around, and the fact that he's a few years older isn't really shocking to me).

Admittedly, I can understand reviewers who were underwhelmed, as they were expecting some more Sherlock-like criminal cases and drama, although I wonder just how much mystery you can build into a 25 minutes episode.

Nevertheless, I found myself looking forward to another half read more

If you have the love of watching mystery series such as Detective Conan, Inspector Gadget, Sherlock Holmes and the like, this series would fit right into your pocket (and a nice derivative for that).

Kyoto Teramachi Sanjou no Holmes, or more specifically, Kyoto native Kiyotaka 'Holmes' Yagashira the male MC, has a knack for solving riddles, trusted by his dad Seiji, whom they both own an antique shop full of real antiques such as drawings and cups. You name it, they have it. In comes Aoi Mashiro, a high school girl who comes into Kiyotaka's shop, looking for a part-time job to help finance her needs read more
