Trivia

Hayao Miyazaki directed six of the episodes, then production was halted due to legal wrangles with the estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (the creator of Sherlock Holmes). By the time these issues were settled, Miyazaki had moved on to other projects, so the rest of the episodes were directed by Kyôsuke Mikuriya. See more »

Chorus: Help me, if you can, to find the smile that I lost / You're the only friend that can resolve all my problems / Sherlock Holmes, our detective so supreme! Sherlock Holmes, you're the only one for me! / Search the darkest corners for the love that I lost / Cure the thing that's torn us from the happiness we knew / Sherlock Holmes, our detective so supreme! Sherlock Holmes, you're the only one for me! / Well, you've got all the qualities we look for in a man / And everybody ...

Terrific Show started by Hayao Miyazaki
1 March 2002 | by Jeremy BristolSee all my reviews

I'm not quite old enough to really remember watching this show as a kid, but I feel like I did, the same way I feel like I watched Warriors of the Wind (movie) and Robotech. The only reason I thought about going back to it was that I heard that Hayao Miyazaki wrote and directed the first six episodes (for a detailed explanation of the origins of this show, go to Nausicaa.net). Well, I now own two of the videos (about eight to ten episodes), and while I can identify most of the ones that were done by Miyazaki, the rest of the episodes were great, too. The details in all the episodes are incredible, and the stories are well-paced and exciting. I especially love the Blue Carbunkle and Little Client episodes (both by Miyazaki), which are very touching, but I won't spoil them for you.
