Welp, I can't say I'm too surprised that the yakuza would cause drama in the show.

A more serious episode than usual. Kobayashi is a rather underrated character in this anime now that I think about it.

Rap sequences in anime are always so amusing to me. xD

Kobayashi shines a lot this episode, i'm beginning to like him more and more.
I liked the end, it was pretty cool

Can anime please stop depicting fat people in such a disrespectful and mocking way ? This is a very stereotypical and ignorant view.

Apart from that, I had expectations coming from this show, a Production IG original. Usually original shows get made when the director has a clear vision on what the show is supposed to convey. However with this anime, I do not get that feeling at all. I'm still waiting for the director's vision to come through, and I'm not sure how much time I'm willing to give it at this point.

I actually really liked this episode. It was funny.

I believe these are the introductory episodes of other detectives. We'll get to the main story soon.

This definitely isn't the best start for an anime, but people are once again being too cruel to an anime original. It doesn't deserve this low score. People are too quick to judge.

Absolutely loved this episode - Kobayashi's backstory, the stupid rap inserts, the focus on the kids with Moriarty on the side, and Sherlock's dumb face at the end. Just great overall.

Sugimoto was a crazy fucker to the end, his insanity was the death of him. Funny how nobody gave a damn after he jumped from the window, did he really really die? Either way, it's karma after that stolen kiss to the old man at the shop :-D

I'd prefer an original Sherlock holmes anime rather than this trash-tier comedy

Moriarty is surely hiding a big secret can't wait to unravel that well you can notice it from the opening that Moriarty is the shadow but not sure if he has a brother or that is his sister

No rakugo. Bad. But still a great episode. Liked the background story of Kobasashi. Also always fun to hear japanese guys rapping anime. :D That guy was weird and funny.

Yeah Moriarty ... the name already hints it (and fun that he is a young boy in Milky Holmes there was a boy as well I think - with the name Moriarty) + those stuff where he needs to do other things supposdely. (Like here with a friend from school ... where he might just have made this up as excuse while doing other stuff.)

The number of eccentrics in this show is at another level lol. Seems like we are gonna get a bit of background ep for other detective. Also this was the first ep without some Sherlock rakugo.

Late to the discussion party. Possibly one of the best EP aired till now. Tora may be a wimp but he has a good heart.

This time the focus was on Kobayashi, and those kids. That Sugimoto was really crazy too, but I didn't expect him to just jump like that. lol And this time Sherlock didn't perform a lot of Rakugo, but welp. I guess we will keep getting to know more about the rest of the cast in the next few episodes.

Lamest verses ever, end your rap career and never drop that mixtape.

We didn't get to see any signature rakugo from Sherlock but at least he got a stupid camel sticker for his phone. Is that supposed to be an expensive sticker? Never heard of such a thing. Collector's item?

I wonder why Moriarty refused to go with them at the end? We'll probably see next week.

I really don't want Moriarty to be the bad guy. His adorable smile makes me feel so warm.

This episode was quite funny.

A guy jumps out the window, and probably dies, but no one even mentions it. haha

the anime is like so-so, currently nothing about the storyline and animation are like a holy shit this is amazing or anything but ive got to say i like this close knit community in kabukichou, kobayashi was so endearing in this episode, im glad the kids have such soft hearted adults that are looking after them. definitely a feel-good episode, i enjoyed it!!

Finally talking about the most eccentric person in the Sherlock ranks, Torataro Kobayashi? Weirdness ensues yet again, and more with the Shinjuku robbery kids gang.

Apparently, the term "virgin" is a rocket beam??? WAD...??? And don't expect them to understand Sherlock's Rakugo either.

Loanshark-cum-drug dealer Sugimoto is also another eccentric person, more on the "don't know, don't understand" area. But one thing I know, he has an affinity for RAP, same with the assistant.

Even though he started from a gang, Kobayashi's heart changed for the better as he dived deep out of the realms of the gang, and into his own person. He's no longer a neko, but a Tama.

Finally a good episode, still can't get over all that weirdness, but I've gotta say, it takes man-courage for a change of heart. Good on you, Kobayashi!

Very wholesome episode! I loved this one, probably, my fav episode from this series so far.

And with this episode and last weeks, I'm really enjoying these side character specific episodes.

I know he's supposed to be but I really don't want Moriarty to be the bad guy this time around >.<

That guy was so weird and disgusting. Anyway nice we got a short backstory of Kobayashi and he did a good job trying to save those kids.

The feels this episode: saving the kids, while going against your old nemesis, and having a manga based around you.

Wish Lucy/Mary's backstory had been that emotionally engaging.

I really hope one day I can sent a rocket beam from my body...

Sugimoto truly is a next level nut-job, especially considering the wacky characters themselves see him as such which really says a lot.
