Synopsis

In Shinjuku ward's east side lies Kabukichou, a vibrant city of chaos that glows brilliantly with neon lights but also hides unseen darkness. Employed at a university hospital on the west side, John H. Watson is looking for someone who can assist him with an odd case. His search leads him to the Pipe Cat, an underground bar that serves as a meetup venue and job board for some of the best detectives in Shinjuku, the most prominent among them being Sherlock Holmes.

Upon finding the bar and meeting the peculiar investigators, John learns that they are pursuing a case involving Jack the Ripper, an infamous serial killer. Due to subsequent events, John ends up driving Sherlock to the crime scene of a murder supposedly carried out by Jack the Ripper. Even though John is only there to enlist Sherlock's help with his case, he witnesses Sherlock brilliantly uncover the truth behind the crime scene. However, he begins to realize that Sherlock is not only a genius detective but also an eccentric character.

As John continues to request Sherlock to assist him with his case, he finds himself spiraling into the detective lifestyle of solving cases beyond the minds of ordinary civilians. Through this work, John begins to see the true colors of the chaotic city that is Kabukichou and starts to unravel the unsettling mystery behind his own case.

Preface-
Whenever a Sherlock themed work is announced, it generates a set of unrealistic expectations from fans-
1. Will the adaptation be faithful to the book?
2. Will the characters be in "character" as Doyle intended it to be?
3. Will it be a procedural police/detective drama involving analytical breakdown of crime scene?

Quite a number of adaptations we have seen ever since television became mainstream in the second half of 20th century. From the classic British TV to Hollywood remake starring Downey Jr. to inspired works like Case Closed in Japan and back to British TV......the list goes on and on.

Have you ever wanted to watch a Japanese Sherlock Holmes wave his dick at you?
Have you ever wondered what a murder mystery would look like if lol-so-random jokes were shoved up its ass?
Are you looking for a mystery anime that makes no sense what-so-ever? Do you even care about writing quality, or are just a you fake anime fan?

If you said yes, then look no further than this anime.

Kabukichou Sherlock is a sorry excuse for a mystery anime! The art is fine, I don't mind the op/ed, or voice acting. But the characters have nothing to them! The script is so stupid. It tries way read more

What I expected: a mystery story.
What I got: a largely episodic slapstick comedy.

Somehow I don't think the brutal murders and cheerful slapstick comedy go together very well. It is like they are trying to fit two different shows into one, and the end result feels like an incohesive mess. For instance, the characters may be investigating a serial killer who murders women in a particularly brutal way. Then they proceed to goof around and act in wacky ways around the corpse. How am I supposed to feel here? Amused? Sad? With the tone doing 180-degree turns within seconds, who knows?

Not every case is equally read more
