I've never started a topic before with the exception of my intro topic, so please excuse me for any mistakes. I just thought it was criminal that this did not have any topics yet.
It's a little embarrassing being a male fan of this series, but it's funny as hell and I love mysteries, so I'm not that ashamed. It's a little odd that Funimation has the sequel up without the original season, especially since I just found out about this season when it I saw it on the list of simulcasts.
For those who haven't seen the original season, there isn't much that hasn't been explained in the first or second episode of this season. They're the granddaughters of famous literary detectives who formed the detective group Milky Holmes. They used to be the best detectives until they lost their toys (powers) in a (still) inexplicable accident. Now they're trying to get back on top. They're rivals with the Gentleman Thieves Empire composed of the descendants of famous literary thieves, who happen to be disguised as members of the school. The Empire wants Milky Holmes back on top so their heists can be challenging again. At the end of the last season Milky Holmes got their toys back briefly in a battle with Henrietta (as Lupin), but promptly lost them again. Also at the end a little girl was introduced as Mori Arty (which is hopefully some foreshadowing if you know your Holmes!), who happens to be that same girl that is chasing that narcissistic genius girl (with an IQ of 1300!). By the way G4 is pretty self-explanatory from their appearance in the first episode of this season.
I know that was lengthy, but I wanted to make sure I covered all that was necessary. If you thought I missed something or just want to comment on the episodes please do! I don't want to be the only one on the forums for this great show.
