Summer 2018 Grab Bag Week 5: Kyoto Teramachi Sanjou no Holmes


I feel like this show has mostly been limping along. Episode 4 was mostly focused on Aoi's social situation, which ended up being exactly what she thought it would be. She suspected that her friend was in a relationship with her ex-boyfriend and it turned out to be the case. I'm not sure what I was supposed to get from that. Episode 5 seemed to switch things up by introducing a recurring antagonist for the series, but he seemed pretty underwhelming for me.

I guess this guy is somehow a recurring character. I'm not entirely sure why or what he contributes. I suppose he made Holmes talk about his love life in this episode, so that's something.

This view of relationships makes sense for someone like Holmes. However, I fail to see what caused him to enter into a relationship in the first place. Was there something different about his ex-girlfriend?

This series really overuses the "Holmes is just a nickname" thing, and I'm starting to agree with Holmes here. His assessment of the fake artwork was just a gut feel at the end of the day, which just seems like a poor excuse for a detective.

I'm kind of sad that the setup from the first episode amounted to this reveal. Logically, it makes sense that a skilled forger would be an adversary for this version of Holmes. But this guy just didn't seem like much. Holmes talked up his abilities as a forger, but he never came off as a worthy rival in this episode.
