Tsukumogami kashimasu Episode 1 Review

This an anime takes place in the old era. It is about a shop which rent’s out some objects which can be ornaments or charms etc.

When an owner of a certain object cherishes the object very much then the objects soul takes a materialized form which is known as Tsukumogami.

Tsukumogami can be seen but they don’t respond to humans, only to other Tsukumogami.

This anime actually is about solving mystery using the Tsukumogami. Which i find interesting. It is supposedly an episodic anime,solving one mystery at a time. I guess the shop is also a part-time detective agency of sorts.

The animation style looks pretty good. I also like how the narrator explains certain objects from the past by comparing it to its present counterpart.

I also think that they will show the back story of each of the Tsukumogami in the shop, which would be interesting to see.

I liked the anime, it is something new and a bit different than the usual.

Aguu: Tensai Ningyou Episode 2 impression (spoilers)

In this Episode we see Ai talking to Machi about her Aguu. Then Machi in turn tries to bribe Ai by giving her one of the Aguu that she has.

For doing this Machi takes Ai to the Aguu Market. There we meet the owner/tailor “Sherlock” who apparently sews Aguu to people for a deposit.

At first Ai agrees to get an Aguu sewed to her but later on realizes that it is the wrong thing to do. So she uses the Talisman given by the grampa on Machi but is later cornered by Sherlock the tailor. Then gramps and the annoying brat come in to save Ai. It is also revealed that Gramps and the brat have special powers which they use to save Ai and beat Sherlock.

It is also revealed that there is a huge demand for Aguu and there are a lot of markets all around the world. Which suggests that there is a huge world surrounding Aguu which is unknown to most common people.Aguu seems to have a very interesting environment which i hope is explored more in the later episodes.

Kyoto Teramachi Sanjou no Holmes Episode 2 Impression (no spoilers)

The second episode actually showed us some of the ability of Kiyotaka as he solves a case with ease.

This case as such was not a hard one. But the good thing is that from now onwards we will get to see much more of crime solving.

Well i really hope there are much serious type of cases in the future. The case we saw this episode has been used a quite a lot. I already knew who the real culprit was even before they revealed it. I feel that the cases should be more complicated and challenging. Nonetheless a decent episode

Kyoto Teramachi Sanjou no Holmes Episode 1 review/ Impression

The story takes place in an antique shop which appraises antique items. The person who appraises the items is called ‘Holmes’. It is just a nickname but the guy is really smart and intelligent kinda like Sherlock.

I immediately started comparing the characters in the anime to actual Sherlock Holmes.The guy called Holmes is basically Sherlock and Aoi (main protagonist/narrator) is Dr Watson and then there is a mysterious villain which we just caught a glimpse of which kinda feels like he would be Moriarty.

Now back to the review

Story: Well it is just the first episode so i am not really sure where the story is heading into. I feel that the main story revolves around the antiques brought into the shop. The mystery part is not yet seen but we still caught a glimpse of a person who supposedly is the villain. The story might also revolve around counterfeit antiques, which Holmes does not like as an appraiser. Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Characters: Yagashira Kiyotaka(Holmes) kinda gives of the Sherlock Holmes feel with his accurate instincts and all. Yagashira like Holmes has a kind of dark side to him(no drugs though). Mashiro Aoi who works part time in the antique shop after certain events. She is a smart girl who catches up with stuff pretty quickly. I think there are quite a lot of them to come some might be there for just an episode and others might make recurring appearances.

Art-style: This anime looks modern and has the art-style and animation similar to Oushitsu Kyoushi Heine. There are some moments where the character are shown as chibi versions of themselves again that’s something i saw in Oushitsu Kyoushi Heine.

While we were able to see the Ability of Yagashira Kiyotaka, we didn’t really see any mysterious cases being brought in,well we’ll have to wait for the anime to progress a bit. For those who can’t wait, you can actually go and read the Novel by Mochizuki Mai, it is said that the anime is based off of the novels.
