Synopsis

"Toys" are powers bestowed upon those chosen to wield them, each having qualities that are unique to their users. Some of these individuals are born pure, using their powers to become detectives. Others bloom laced with poison and choose to become phantom thieves. These two opposing factions caused the formation of various detective academies around the globe—training detectives to fight and catch the phantom thieves.

Sherlock Shellingford, Nero Yuzurizaki, Hercule Burton, and Cordelia Glauca form "Milky Holmes", a group recognized as the cream of the crop in the Yokohama-based Holmes Detective Academy. However, in a skirmish against the phantom thief Arsene, their Toys suddenly disappear, deeming them unfit to continue as detectives. Stripped of their prestigious life and thrown into a rundown attic, they face expulsion if they fail to regain their powers within the next three months.

Tantei Opera Milky Holmes tells the story of a once-legendary group in their journey to recover their Toys, as well as attempting to continue their line of work without the powers that once defined their career.

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

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

SAO just like Milky holmes is a psychological delicacy that is undermined within the mainstream media as being a moe trash piece of garbage which when in fact it is really a genre defining academic text which would drive the most literally minded academics insane over the deep and complex issues conveyed of perpetual identity, symbolic relational symbolism, alternative character constructions and exploration through modern sociological issues within the show not to mention the ground breaking visuals which would send the most post modern shaft style shows to shame.

Honestly i could spend hours unravelling and discussing the deep psychophysical themes of Tantei Opera Milky Holmes 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.
