Ugh...this is slightly disheartening. There was still plot to uncover.

Ah well. A new cast could be a nice change of pace, as long as they keep it as funny as the first two seasons.

I'm not happy about this focusing on the kouhais instead of our usual Milky Holmes cast, I also don't like the fact that it's 12 minutes. But maybe I'll change my mind once the first few episodes are out.

I just wish we had another season of Milky Holmes being the moe idiots that they are. :(

... Milky Holmes has kouhai!?
Milky Holmes universe but not Milky Holmes!?

I'm getting unsure.... >.>


It's a short featuring the two characters shown. At least it's 12 minutes long unlike a lot of shorts, you can tell an original short story in 12 minutes.

A good addition to the lolified Summer we are getting.

Really? Honestly, I didn't enjoy the second season all that much. Why does that deserve another season? Mondaji-tachi deserves another season instead


Because Milky Holmes is objectively a Masterpiece! (And it sells).

EXACTLY!!!!

I was soooooo happy when I learned this was coming!


Glad they stopped making them alternatives (Although Sherl/Lily is goggle worthy, I still prefers HenSher~)
What concerns me is how 'serious' this show will be. :/
I just hope they will be the usual dame dame MH.

...Anybody still waiting for KiteSeekers to finish their sub on season 2?
I never finished season 2 because I've been waiting for KS to finish subbing for... over a year now.
I am with you lol ._.


Kiteseeker+Wasurenai already finished subbing them... And they got new staffs ready for Season 3, so.. daily with no more waiting, Hell yeah!!

I'm going to watch every single episode of this show, hate it, keep watching it despite the fact that I hate it and bully people online because they like the show. Because that's what cool people do.


But Milky Holmes is MASTERPIECE.
Milky bros also awesome.

As much as I loved Milky Holmes, I didn't exactly expected this news. It's great to hear this! :D

OMG YES! I've really missed the Milky Holmes characters and I thought we'd have to wait until 2014 for the third season (if there was going to be one) since season one started in 2010 and then the last season last year. But I'm really glad that it's going to be here sooner than expected, I might just make a note of how many times Kokoro scolds Sherlock for calling her Kokoro-chan this season just for kicks. ^^

On another note, I may have died even more at the fact that Aimi will be joining the cast, I love her duets with Suzuko. c:

LOL J.C.Staff is on a roll xD

I heard second game bombed too but I may be wrong.

Games as well, plus the seiyuu are quite big, with an event in Budoukan (you know, the famous venue HTT aspired to in K-ON!) and all that
The interesting thing is that the seiyuu actually got big because of Milky Holmes. They were all pretty nameless before it.

still don't understand how this anime can go on to a third season, how's that even possible?


The only possible explanation is the figures, them Nendoroids and 1/7-1/8 figures sell, the anime did not sell well.
