Summer 2018 Grab Bag Week 3: Kyoto Teramachi Sanjou no Holmes

This episode had a decent story to it, but I'm not a huge fan of the style used by the mysteries in this series. It seems to rely on flashes seen in the opening episode to act as teasers and misdirection, which doesn't feel reminiscent of old school Holmes. As a result, I wasn't really entertained by the mystery in the second episode. However, episode three seemed like it had a better payoff in the end. I liked the idea of using scrolls as messages, so it ended up being more fun to watch.

With the way Aoi stared at this strap, I was sure it would play a role in the overall solution to the mystery, but I guess that's stretching a bit too far.

I'm not entirely sure where they're going with all of this, but I respect the fact that Aoi's plan to go confront her ex-boyfriend isn't lost in the noise. It still feels like a bit of a stall for her to avoid the trip like this, but at least it's brought up before the final arc in the series.

The whole conversation with the scrolls seems to drag on a bit with Holmes interrogating the "suspects", but I guess it's going back to the idea that he works in an antique shop. I suppose that art is going to be a central focus or something.

As I mentioned earlier, I really did enjoy this final piece. I think that the remark Holmes makes earlier in the episode about Haruhiko resembling his father is pushing a bit too far, but I liked this piece of the mystery in particular.
