I feel like I might be in a minority in that I genuinely enjoyed Milky Holmes. I don't want to purchase it on DVD or Blu-Ray, but it was pretty non-offensive fun.

I think a number of viewers missed the fact that it was meant as a parody.

This pleases me.

It never quite got to those heights but it sometimes got close to Galaxy Angel levels of stupid fun.

Looking forward to Mori Arty. And who knows, we might find out that Sheryl has a dumber older sister.

The Milky Holmes television anime series and detective romance adventure game follow four budding female private eyes.


Yeah, we're sure our saucy-eyed detectives eye-ing their easily-exposed female privates for budding romances....... Laughing

IMO, the energy and pure wackiness didn't kick in until a few episodes into the series. It was as if the writing/directorial staff suddenly found their groove.

....because it's a pedo moemoe show?

I tried watching the first few eps but it instantly degenerated into "cute girls doing cute things" ..... while naked, fanservicing, etc. while being in middle school or younger...

And Arsene had disturbing body proportions. It was like balloons taped to her body...

Does this have any romance, or judging by the Galaxy Angel character did they cut out the few male characters that played prominent roles in the game?

It wasn't entirely. It had a lot of comedy (it's indeed mainly a comedy show), and some of that was parody, but it also took itself quite serious at times. For me it really felt like a children's show, if it wasn't for the fanservice o_O All in all, it's a moe comedy show.

It felt like a kid's show right up until the ED credits started for the first episode. Any doubts were eradicated with the tail butt plug in a later episode...

My overall impression of it is very similar to the currently running Twin Angel.

I'm excited, this is one of only 2 shows in 2010 that I've wanted a second season of. Glad it's getting one. My favorite show of last year.
