Director Of Voltron And The Legend Of Korra Is Producing A Mystery Thriller Series: Blossom Detective Holmes

by Tito W. James

Blossom Detective Holmes is an independent Anime mini-series directed by Steve Ahn (Voltron: Legendary Defender, Avatar: The Legend of Korra).

With this project, Ahn hopes to create an animated crime mystery thriller with a twist on suspenseful and mature themes. Ahn is currently managing a small team of animation veterans who have worked at Pixar, Disney, Dreamworks, and Studio Ghibli.

You can view the first episode of Blossom Detective Holmes: Selfie With A Strange Intruder below.

Skylar Holmes and Jamie are two plucky female detectives who investigate crimes and murders. Skylar’s sense of smell is keener than a bloodhound’s and she carries a flower in her mouth reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes’ pipe. Jamie has a magic polaroid camera that allows her to teleport with anyone she takes a selfie with.

Admittedly, some of the animation looks a bit rough. However, this could be the first step towards a full-blown animated series like Cannon Busters or RWBY.
