It appears even Holmes’ grandfather can instantly solve things. How Evil is the 6th episode of Holmes of Kyoto?
This episode opened a little different than most of the others. It opened with Aoi inviting a friend to Holmes’ grandfather’s birthday party. There was also a discussion about what Aoi feels for Holmes. That was interesting, to say the least. What she said seemed to correct, sometimes it seems she likes him while other times she seems different so, her saying she doesn’t know what she feels makes perfect sense.
After that Aoi is at the place where the party is going to take place with Holmes and his family. This is where we meet the owner’s girlfriend Yoshie and her son Rikyū. Yoshie is young compared to Holmes’ grandfather but they do make a cute couple. Rikyū is pretty much Holmes’ younger brother. He’s even just as nasty as Holmes. When he first meets Aoi he tells her that they no longer need her to work at the store meaning that she is…
And that was his idea of a joke. My brother pulled the same thing on me and you know what it’s still not funny. Anyway, Rikyū isn’t all that bad, after that tasteless joke he actually ends up being pretty nice to Aoi. And then we have the actor, he’s back but this time he seems more interested in the friend Aoi invited much to Aoi’s apparent disgust.
The birthday party seems to go pretty well until we get to the antique gallery that the guest is allowed to enter. The place houses all of the antiques collected by the Owner of the shop and it’s pretty much just an art museum. And the most expensive piece is on a pedestal with absolutely nothing protecting it. Nothing bad could possibly happen to…
Yeah, the face gets broken how about that? And get this, it was broken after the doors to the gallery had already been locked. Right when it looks like we might get a proper mystery Holmes’ grandfather announces that the broken vase is a fake meaning someone swapped it out.
This is when Holmes steps in and solves the case in 5 minutes flat. It was a little disappointing. The culprits even tried fighting back only to be subdued by Rikyū. He’s really good at fighting. We did get to see something new Holmes got really angry for once and it was kind of spooky.
Overall I’d say this episode was about as Evil as a Villian (9). I still wish the mystery element was a bit stronger but the show is enjoyable at least.
