Sherlock Holmes is a dog!? The greatest detective the world has ever known has been reincarnated into a cute new form with floppy ears, and big, expressive eyes. Little does this stop him though, for he is as keen as ever. His only regret is this body which restricts him. Thankfully, friendship has also survived the great divide, so it is up to Takeru, Watson reborn, to pick up the slack, especially since he is the only one that can understand him. In general, Sherdog's cases have a very different setup to the original material. Each starts by portraying the murderer for one. This format better suits the tense excitement of manga, but means it loses many of the attractive features of a Holmes mystery. Most are solved in a battle of wits rather than through insurmountable evidence. Personality-wise Sherdog is slightly different than Sherlock. He has a new range of emotions thanks to the expressive dog form which just begs to be used, and can look quite funny. The choice of animal is quite appropriate though, as dogs were the one animal that Holmes had respect for. In the first few volumes the crimes are all similar, hopefully the author will bring in more variety later, and in many ways this is more a light comedy and suspense than a mystery series.
