The original "dramatic extreme going to school comedy" manga follows the titular female high school student Chio Miyamo, and her adventures to commute to school every day. Chio runs into problems both big and small, such as construction, a biker gang, a sudden urge to use the bathroom, and more.
Holmes of Kyoto (Holmes at Kyoto Teramachi Sanjō) will premiere on TV Tokyo and TV Osaka on July 9 late at night at 2:05 a.m. (effectively July 10), before airing later that evening on TV Aichi. The show will also air on BS-Japan and AT-X.

Kenichi Yamashita (Ishida and Asakura, Actually, I Am…) is in charge of the series scripts. Yōsuke Itō (King's Game The Animation) is designing the characters, and also serves as the chief animation director.
The "light, antique mystery" series based on Mai Mochizuki's novel series revolves around a "spiteful," handsome Kyoto boy and a high school girl. The story is set at an antique shop in Kyoto's Teramachi Sanjō shopping district. High school girl Aoi Mashiro unexpectedly runs into Kiyotaka Yagashira, the son of the shop's owner, and ends up working part-time at the shop. Kiyotaka is called the "Holmes at Teramachi Sanjō," and he and Aoi solve odd cases brought to them by various clients.
