Description
Seikimatsu Tantei Kurabu is dedicated to the very gay and very passionate love of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. I suppose that it could even be called a doujinshi, since it's blatantly based on Conan Doyle's work, and many of his characters make appearances throughout the story. In fact, the main story is split into three sub-stories -- each one focusing on a different aspect of the Holmes/Watson relationship.

The first story is titled Paris Fin de Siècle, and is a light-hearted introduction to our protagonists. There's a little fluff, a little humor, a sardonic reunion with Arsène Lupin, and a sexually charged scene of boot-licking. (Actual boot-licking. Not the metaphorical kind!) There are also fabulous kisses, cross-dressing criminals and unusual confessions. No smut so far, though. That comes later on. Oh, yes.

The last two stories are based on actual Conan Doyle plots. The second story is based on and named after The Adventure of the Three Garridebs, and the third is similarly inspired by A Scandal in Bohemia. It's wonderful to see Conan Doyle re-interpreted through a yaoi mangaka's eyes! It's particularly rewarding to see Holmes undergo a paradigm shift after Watson is shot in The Three Garridebs; Holmes realizes that he can't take the good doctor for granted anymore, and that his old friend has become so much more than a friend to him.

This manga is pure gold. The story is well built and very interesting and the art is exquisite and different than the usual yaoi manga. I strongly recommend.
