Sounds more like a ova to me.

Then again, in the games the Milky Holmes always have their Toys and the same and good sense of humor was still there, if anything is "strange" that was the anime adaptations in the first place.

The third season was boring as hell but the real problem was the new characters, not only the Feathers, but the new Phantom Thieves were nothing compared to the previous ones, it has nothing to do if the Milky Holmes have their Toys back or not.

Well, the first two seasons make this anime one of those rare ones that should be revered as one of the best of the decade. But that's selling it short.

There have been many cases of stolen songs happening among the idols in Yokohama District recently. Even super idol Marine Amagi's hit song "Kiseki no Uta" was taken away. At the request of Marine, the Milky Holmes team starts investigating the case.

I don't have much hope for this new season... unless that investigation only lasts for a few minutes of the first episode before they lose all their Toys again.

Now that I see the image again, I can perfectly see those annoying brats from the third season again in the cover... Sigh. And I guess that the girl that appears in the bottom right must be the new character in the series.

Especially the second season was a lot of fun, I really hope it doesn't come to be like that trash of third season, at the very least. I wouldn't mind if it comes to be a little more "serious" like the games and the Opera OVA, but whenever the case I expect to be something really worth of it this time.

Another one!? Wow okay. Should be good although I hope its going to be more like the first 2 seasons.

Milky Holmes, especially season 2 (THE AGE OF FARMING), was one of my all-time favorite series. Then 'season 3' happened and I lost all hope of a continuation, let alone seeing the series redeem itself.

Will watch, but I have my reservations.

How many more µ's members are we going to add to the milky holmes cast at this rate? We are already at 4/9. Might as well go the whole way.


The studio wants the CDs to sell because it's one of the few reasons why we are getting a new season, the BDs didn't sell much.

I hope they're retarded like in the first and second season. Third one never existed.

yo I'm not 10. not gonna watch that kids show


The first 2 seasons were DEFINITELY not for kids. There is some very adult humor in this show. I would not be wanting my 10 yo to watch this!

that said - good news I think but still it would be nice to know if they want to make it more like season 1 (slightly dumb but there is a plot), season 2 ("hey guys I'm writing this on drugs" kind of series) or abominable season 3.
I think that first option would be best.


I'd be happy to have the Season 2 on crack again. I still think the funnest thing was the rooster which saved them in episode 1, who promptly got eaten by the group!! It had such energy and awesome tasteless humor. I don't think it needs an overarching plot. They could do it with american style reset episodes and it would work I think.

Season 3 does not exist ... no it never happened!

wait... what?
Milky Holmes for kids? like in 90's that could pass but in this case it just shows you have no idea what you are talking about.

that said - good news I think but still it would be nice to know if they want to make it more like season 1 (slightly dumb but there is a plot), season 2 ("hey guys I'm writing this on drugs" kind of series) or abominable season 3.

But seemingly not past your teens if you still give a flying fuck about something being "kids" or "adults" stuff.

Maybe you shouldn't judge a show base on some picture?
