What a harsh rating the show has on here (it's only three votes though)...

Milky Holmes is about four aspiring detectives in Detective Academy. With the help of special abilities called "Toys" they're out to catch the bad guys. They also happen to be the most successful team at their school. That is until the faithful day where they loose their "Toys". As it turns out the ladies are actually kinda... doofuses.

For most of it's runtime the show is a pure comedy and not a mystery show. There are tons of reaction faces and silly humor. The cast features plenty of whack jobs but is mostly one notes characters. Towards the final episodes they however always pack out the animation budget and deliver with some action packed finale (at least twice).
I genuinely enjoyed the show - up until the third season. That season introduced a new set of protagonist and antagonists. The original MH cast is still there but since the girls look up to them they try their hardest to be "serious detectives", at least in front of them. This really kills the spirit because the goofiness is what made the show fun in the first place.
Here is hoping that the upcoming season will be more like the first two.
