Format: Paperback
I saw the third volume at the bookstore and ultimately passed on because of the title, but I read a couple of sample chapters online eventually got this volume from the library, figuring it would pass the time, if nothing else.

Like the title say, this is better than it has any right being.

The premise is this. A high school boy brings a dog from the pound only to discover the dog is the reincarnation of Sherlock Holmes and can speak to him when it's got the pipe of the boy's grandfather in it's mouth. The dog believes the boy is the reincarnation of Watson and drags him around to solve mysteries.

Pretty dumb, right?

Well, dumber premises have turn into classics.

The deductions are worthy of Holmes, but the mysteries play more like a Columbo episode. Usually they figure out who the criminal is early on the story and the rest of the mystery revolves around them digging up up enough evidence to trap them. If you like a more traditional Holmes story, this may not be your cup of tea. But this is really is a good example of a battle of wits between clever people. Besides anything that reminds me of Columbo is doing at least one thing right.

There are some parts I don't like there. The biggest are the genre (for manga) conventions. There's the hapless, "ordinary" high school student and his female child friend. Both obviously have feelings for each other, but the boy denies it and ends up saying something insensitive, and the girl reacts violently. It's not done particularly badly (nor particularly well), but it just seems to be there for the sake of it.

There's some toilet humor, which I can always do without, but thankfully is few and far between.

The argument about the dog's name is a running gag, but it get's old after awhile.

But all these are minor and I'm looking forward to read the rest of the series.
