What They Say:
Kou comes to a certain city, in search of his older brother Takumi, who ran away from home and disappeared. Thinking it’d be rather difficult to find his older brother, Kou decides not to go back until he finds him… but he ends up finding him immediately. However, when Kou is reunited with Takumi, he had become the head of the Mikuni Detective Agency. Takumi appears to have no intentions to go back home. Kou then decides that if his older brother isn’t going to come home, he’s going to stay at the Mikuni Detective Agency.

Things kick off in an odd state now as we basically get a locked room kind of situation with some amusement as Kanno is all tied up and yelling out for Hanei to free him. There’s always so fun banter between the pair but it gets worse when Takumi arrives and they find that there’s basically a big game of revenge going on here with everyone trapped inside and being set down a dangerous path. Of comedy. Forcing them to try and escape, it takes some amusing nods in how they can contact the outside even in this area. While they are told to escape, the trio basically has to deal with a host of silly issues first and some nonsensical ideas on how to escape, which is amusing but really leaves you wanting just a bit more to chew on.
Strange+ does manage from time to time to handle dropping us into an episode for something to laugh at and be amused about and this one does it better than a lot of them. Putting the trio of Takumi, Kanno and Hanei together to find a way to escape from an underground prison can make for some weird moments and decent humor and we do get it. But it also doesn’t really do much of anything beyond that, which is fine but the show always feels like it’s just taking the easy route out more often than not. There’s a few minor chuckles here and I like the interactions between the characters, but there’s not much more to it than that.
